The Qatar Collection is as unique as the country itself. Qatar collection is inspired by the great wish to create unique timepieces for unique figures. L’Epée 1839 has recently created some collections that prove they do like to toe the line. In their kinetic sculpture, there is clearly no space and no interest in object for the common man to own. They are giving the experienced aficionados of the world a way out – clearly something not all, but many consciously or subconsciously have been looking for.
Qatar clock sits among the clocks designed to stay timeless. It has its own personality and yet L’Epée 1839 clocks all have in common the quest of being among the best. It has its own Tourbillon escapement set on top of the movement. The regulator is the key part of the watch… it controls the full gear chain and delivers the exact quantity of energy to the gear train below, allowing it to keep track of time. The Tourbillon escapement is a high precision regulator, one of the most complicated function usually only available on the most exclusive wristwatch. And in its execution it is as big as a full watch-movement…
The Qatar clock is the clock of the powerful. Besides being a L’Epée 1839 clock which is known as the clock of the influential and powerful, the clock itself is set as Royal court. Its regulator, which has deliberately been placed on top for all to admire, controls, as a king, the powers of all … and so, controls the precision of the clock’s time.
When conceiving the Qatar clock, the team set out a new reference in clock design movement. CEO Arnaud Nicolas says: "The idea of manufacturing a clock in the shape of the Qatar country came to me whilst I was visiting the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar. The richness of the astronomical instruments shown in the museum is unbelievable. Knowing that the astrolabe is a very ancient astronomical computer for solving problems relating to time and the position of the Sun and stars in the sky - Typical uses of the astrolabe include finding the time during the day or night, finding the time of a celestial event such as sunrise or sunset and as a handy reference of celestial positions. Our Qatar clock has been designed, engineered and manufactured in celebration of and recognition of these late works that were so well captured in the museum."
