Would you travel into the future or the past?

TIME MACHINE

With a futuristic design inspired by the film world, and a subtle nod to the mechanics of yesteryear, the Time Machine is nothing less than a mechanical sculpture that tells the time.
Time Machine by L'Epée 1839

Would you travel into the future or the past?

Remember those crazy time travel contraptions, with all those frenzied moving, twirling parts? The new kinetic architecture of L’Epée 1839 belongs right there alongside them. The entire upper part revolves. A single press sets the entire time capsule – the glass tube, the carriage, the time display, and the whole mechanical movement – rotating and transporting you through time.

The two propellers at either end of the carriage are also mobile: the first winds the movement, while the second adjusts the time. 

The time capsule, powered by all these rotations, rests on a stable and immobile tripod that ensures total stability for safe take-offs and landings. A wing-nut system at the center of the clock locks the rotation of the capsule and stabilizes the precious mechanism during the journey.  

With its 370 components, the Time Machine is a complex table clock measuring 22 cm high and 26 cm wide. It includes a mechanical L’Epée 1839 caliber featuring an 8-day power reserve. As with any dream machine, the onlooker immediately seeks to understand how it works: the motor is therefore visible in its entirety, providing a clear view of the mechanics and their timekeeping.

The Time Machine is produced in three limited editions of 50 pieces each: silvered, black and silvered, and black and gold.
