L’Epée 1839 is the only Swiss Manufacture specializing in the design and production of high-end mechanical clocks – an art it has been perpetuating for over 175 years. Today, the Manufacture is situated in Delémont in the Swiss Jura, where several skills essential to the production of luxury mechanical clocks are now united under one roof.

CLOCKMAKING EXPERTISE & PASSION
Specializing in horological complications for many years, L'Epée has built up an excellent reputation around the world. From computer-assisted design to the final technical checks and adjustments, all employees enthusiastically contribute to the creation of L'Epée timepieces. Their mastery of various tools and working methods has enabled the brand to adapt its complications in surprising ways: the transformation of the double retrograde seconds into a “laser cannon” on its Starfleet Machine is a prime example.
L’Epée is one of the few Manufactures to design, develop and internaly produce its own timepieces. Armed with exceptional expertise, the L’Epée artisans and employees make it their duty to perpetuate the expertise inherent to the production of all its components, and to form partnerships with the best specialists in the artistic crafts whenever these are required for a creation.
All L’Epée products bear the highly coveted “Swiss Made” label and are, for the most part, conform to all the new regulations associated with this label. They strive to maintain a continuously high level of excellence in order to meet the quality standards exacted by the brand’s clientele of collectors and enthusiasts.
A BALANCE OF MODERNITY AND TRADITION
Drawing on its heritage, L'Epée has preserved its know-how over the years, allowing it to create a world that combines modernity and clockmaking traditions. The brand’s constant quest for innovative solutions and its unremitting desire to push back boundaries have enabled it to offer a varied collection of clocks that are both contemporary and extraordinary.
The Manufacture’s entire team is committed to satisfying its customers, and turning the dreams and wishes of these clock enthusiasts into reality. Passing on the brand’s history and communicating its values through close customer relations is a priority.
