A table clock that can send shivers down your spine! Requiem by L’Epée 1839 is a one-of-its-kind masterpiece.
The deadly form of the skeletal head holds your attention for a long time. Long enough for you to decipher that it’s not a scary Halloween accessory but a table clock. L’Epée 1839 reveals the mystery of Requiem, it’s latest creation.
The skull-shaped table clock has been designed in partnership with Kostas Metaxas. It has an 8-day movement. The expertise of the brand at making high-end kinetic clocks is seen in Requiem. Almost 7.4 inches high and weighing about 2 kgs, Requiem is made of cast aluminum. It displays the time in the sockets of the eye.
The skull is available in two variants – black with gold-plated brass movement and silver (aluminum) with palladium-plated movement. The two discs on the movement displays jumping hour and sweeping minutes. The skull encourages you to literally face your fears. You have to look into the skull’s eyes to see the time.
The mechanism is placed at the centre of the skull. It denotes the brain. Two crossed swords are placed on the temple. It is the symbol of the brand.
Startling in appearance, Requiem is sober, modern and visually delicate timepiece. It is limited to 50 pieces per variant. The Requiem is L’Epée 1839’s take on the artistic genre Memento Mori. Literally translated, it means “Remember that you are going to die.”
