Le Duel

Both Le Duel's seconds and power reserve are regulated at sword point! Two crossed swords, the signature and emblem of the brand, indicate that the power reserve is at maximum. As it diminishes, the angle between the swords slowly increases until, after 40 days, the logo is reversed, indicating that the clock needs rewinding! Far from being contented with just one complication, L'Epée has introduced a second duel at 12 o'clock: a fabulous spectacle of two swords following the rhythm of the seconds and clashing every 20 seconds. Limited series of 50.
