L'Epée 1839 - La Tour

One of the advantages of clocks over watches is that they provide a better view for those who love to observe the movement. No loupe required. A clock can have gears that are significantly bigger than a whole watch. L'Epée 1839 understand this very well and produce a number of models where the bridges and architecture all serve to suspend the movement in mid air – dust free air, of course, inside their glass display cases. I first heard of L'Epée 1839 because of their collaborations with MB&F (search the label below), then I actually saw one of their carriage clocks at a dealer. Not one of their most adventurous models, but gorgeously made and incredibly heavy! I would love to get my (white cotton gloved) hands on La Tour here.
