Made in partnership between l’ECAL and L’Epée 1839, Time Flies is an eight-day clock in the form of a stylized 1930s plane, offering just enough structure to provide form and just enough space to inspire our imaginations.
Hours and minutes are displayed on large diameter stainless steel disks with black PVD coating on a circular-brushed satin finish and stamped numerals. The movement, built specifically for this Time Flies, allows the escapement, which regulates precision, to be displayed in the cockpit. Accuracy is in the pilot’s seat!
The architecture of the eight-day movement, developed in-house by L’Epée 1839, follows the form of a real airplane. As in a plane, power comes from the front where the engine is located and is generated by a fully openworked crown reminiscent of engine cooling radiators just behind the propeller. When fully wound, Time Flies can soar for a full eight days before “refueling.”
L’Epée 1839 has developed a mounting stand on which Time Flies can be admired taking off for a truly sensational display. An innovative latch beneath the movement clips it securely in place. On its stand, Time Flies is as elegant placed on your desk as on its pedestal in a library.
