L’Epee 1839 – Time Fast D8 – Yellow

The inspiration comes from the 1950’s Formula One (F1) Racing Car.
The result is a modern clock or a Kinetic Piece of Art that tells the time.
Movement design as a H chassis (such as the H chassis build up on racing car in the 50’s)
Hours and minutes are displayed in a side race number sticker
A figure sits in the cockpit, where the glass dome (blown-glass dome) symbolizes the driver’s helmet, and the escapement symbolizes the brain of the driver (the brain control the body as the escapement control the time)
In front of the driver is the steering wheel, which adopts the three-spoke design typically seen in race cars and is made of 3 rims set together (2 rims taking in sandwich the central one as the real one – 2 pieces of wood around a steel one in the old cars)
The Steering wheel is normaly used to drive direction, here it drive the time. One rotation side set the time the other is free to align the 3 spokes in order to drive fast and in line.
A clock needs to be rewinded, the ‘Time Fast D8’ adopts a special mechanical motor which is rewinded just like the pull-back car of our Childhood!
