Le Duel Perpétuel Tourbillon

L'Epée isn't afraid to cross swords with a challenge, particularly when pitted against the most complex mechanics. And so the Duel Perpétuel clock, already a feat of technique revealed in 2012, now incorporates a Tourbillon. This time, three sets of swords are en garde. The power reserve is still shown by two swords crossing then surrendering. A second duel takes place at 12 o'clock with the fabulous spectacle of two swords clashing every 20 seconds. Surmounting the mechanism, the Tourbillon makes its rotations under the close guard of two immobile swords. Three jumping discs at the base of the clock show the day, date, month and year. An 88-piece limited series that continues a horological tradition that began in 1839.
