L’Epée Hits the Target with New Pistol-Shaped Clock
L’Epée 1839 and The Unnamed Society are partnering to create a series of 100 unique pistol-shaped table clocks. One is available now at Goldsmith & Complications. It has a satin-finished palladium frame coated with black-PVD. The forged carbon grip is imbued with Super-LumiNova that glows blue in the dark.
The Pistol table clock takes it bold look from the legendary Colt Bisley, a single-action revolver introduced in the late 1800s. The Bisley’s hammer and trigger were wide, making it ideal for fast shooting. It was the weapon of choice for Pancho Villa, an icon of the Mexican revolution. For him, the Bisley stood for the power of revolution. For L’Epée 1839 and The Unnamed Society, the Pistol symbolizes the power of time and serves as a reminder of how fleeting it can be.
The Pistol has an eight-day power reserve that requires weekly winding, much like an owner cleaning their gun each week. The tactile experience of the Pistol aims for realism with the gun’s functioning hammer and trigger. Instead of the spinning cylinder, there are two rotating rings that indicate the time. The minute ring can be turned manually to adjust the time.
