VANITAS

A wall clock designed by Fiona Kruger

Limited edition of 50 pieces per configuration

This charismatic cranium reminds you to celebrate life. The hours and minutes are shown by the clocks hands, and a power reserve indicator is integrated into the mouth of the skull. Creativity is at the heart of both L'Epee 1839 and Fiona Kruger Timepieces. This is evident in L'Epee's acceptance of the challenge to create this modern day Vanitas with a humorous twist. The new 'yawning' power reserve indicator required a whole new development and re-engineering of the clock movement.  It is a marriage bewteen fantasy and purpose which is at the core of the collaboration. As Vanitas loses power it starts to yawn, indicating it needs to be wound up.  Though with a 35 day power reserve, this monthly ritual will give you a moment to stop and take stock of the time you have.
