A modular weather measurement instrument to conquer the stars

Space Module

Space Module is the first space module of an entirely new kind, developed by L’Epée 1839 for the exploration of distant planets. Its sensors can be used to capture data from new territories.

A modular weather measurement instrument to conquer the stars

The year 2019 marks a milestone in the history of space exploration: it is 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 expedition that brought about Man's first steps on the moon. It is also a landmark year for L’Epée 1839, which is celebrating the 180th anniversary of its watchmaking art manufacture. So, at Baselworld 2019, the brand is presenting Space Module, a Swiss-made weather instrument whose design is inspired by the first lunar modules from the 1960s.

This is not L’Epée 1839's first venture into space: Starfleet Machine and Destination Moon have already taken us far beyond our planet.

The barometer—an essential indicator of good or bad weather—measures atmospheric pressure. Meanwhile the hygrometer measures the percentage of humidity in the air. Lastly, the thermometer indicates the temperature of the environment. The three mechanical and modular instruments are placed one on top of the other on a stable base adorned with finishes and decoration inspired by the tools used for space exploration.

This mechanical weather station device was created by Martin Bolo, a promising young designer. He drew his inspiration from the tiered structure of lunar modules and the unmistakable shape of cylinder landing gear.

Space Module weighs 3.8 kg (8.4 lbs). Its diameter of 25 cm/9.8 in and height of 21 cm/8.3 in (for the most complete version) give it a balanced stature that enables it to go almost anywhere.

Space Module is a limited edition of 50 pieces, available in gilded and silver-colored versions.
