There are only a few times when a clock isn’t just a clock but a representation of history, that tells a story of evolution of something that we all consider mundane today. Matthew Norman’s L’Audacieuse table clock is one such example. Tracing the company’s evolution from a reproducer of traditional carriage and officers’ clocks to a manufacturer of resolutely modern timepieces, the L’Audacieuse showcases its new brand five-barrel movement with a 40-day power reserve and a vertically oriented balance. Made in the limited run of 50 pieces only, each watch will come with a numbered certificate. The highlight of this $14,990 clock is the Côtes de Genève striping. Time to get one.
