MB&F + L'Épée 1839

Destination Moon

Conceived by MB&F and built by L’Epée 1839, Switzerland's premier clock maker, Destination Moon is the quintessential torpedo-shaped rocket of childhood dreams. But look more closely and you will see that its minimalistic form is evocative rather than definitive.

Hours and minutes are displayed on large diameter stainless steel discs with stamped numerals. While the legibility of the time display is not in question, focusing on the time rather than the spectacular, vertically-structured, open movement is likely to require deep concentration.

Destination Moon is available in 4 limited editions of 50 pieces each in black PVD, blue PVD, Green CVD and palladium (silver).

Description

Destination Moon

Conceived by MB&F and built by L’Epée 1839, the vertical architecture of L’Epée 1839's eight-day movement was developed specifically for Destination Moon and follows the basic engineering of a real spaceship. The power for Destination Moon comes from the oversized winding crown in its base.

Hours and minutes are displayed on large diameter stainless steel discs with stamped numerals. While the legibility of the time display is not in question, focusing on the time rather than the spectacular, vertically-structured, open movement is likely to require deep concentration.

And then there's Neil: a smile-inducing, space-suited figurine forged in solid silver and stainless steel, magnetically attached to the ladder connecting the crown to the movement. Neil imparts a childlike sense of wonder by putting man into the machine.

The Creator

L'EPÉE 1839

For over 175 years, L'Epée has been at the forefront of watch and clock making. Today, it is the unique specialised manufacture in Switzerland dedicated to making high-end clocks.

L'Epée was founded in 1839, initially to make music box and watch components, by Auguste L’Epée who set up the business near Besançon, France. L'Epée is now based in Delémont in the Swiss Jura Mountains. Under the guidance of CEO Arnaud Nicolas, L’Epée 1839 has developed an exceptional table clock collection, encompassing a range of sophisticated classic carriage clocks, contemporary design clocks (Le Duel) and avant-garde, minimalist clocks (La Tour). Complications include retrograde seconds, power reserve indicators, perpetual calendars, tourbillons and striking mechanisms – all designed and manufactured in-house. Ultra-long power reserves have become a signature of the brand.
