Bucherer & L'Epée 1839 expand their collection

In partnership with the masters at L’Epée 1839, Bucherer has launched two fascinating new Bucherer Exclusives. The two kinetic sculptures are characterised by their innovative character and outstanding artisanal flair.

The single seat of Time Fast Forward, inspired by the classic 1950s sports car design, is reminiscent of the racing’s golden age. The dark colour scheme of the bodywork and the high-tech forged carbon fibre developed specifically for this collaboration give the creation a cool, modern touch. The engine consists of a graduated movement with an eight-day power reserve smoothly integrated within the bodywork. When pulled backwards, the mechanical engine is wound up like a toy car – a fun homage to the days of childhood.

A Bucherer Exclusive, the Time Machine comes in an even more innovative design. The mechanical sculpture was designed with sci-fi classics like Back to the Future in mind. The fascinating design skilfully blends aesthetics with all the subtleties of watchmaking. The time capsule – the glass tube, the time display and the whole mechanical movement – can easily be set in rotation. What’s more, the time capsule resplendently showcase the entire movement with its eight-day power reserve. Two black metal cylinders inside the time capsule are used to indicate the time. The elegantly formed wheels at either end of the capsule are used to set the time and wind the barrel. With its intricate details and sophisticated design features, the idea behind the Time Machine is to incite observers to set off on a wonderful journey through time and experience the many facets of this exciting timepiece issued in a 20-piece limited edition.
