Le Guepard

From £26990.00

Le GUÉPARD is a unique table clock with a passing strike complication. It takes its identity from the complication’s aesthetic shape, which is modelled on the outline of a running cheetah.

Each piece of the striking-work plays an aesthetic role in the cheetah’s composition. Think of it as an hour-strike fused together with a cheetah.

The mechanism sets every part of the cheetah in motion, in a hybrid, mechanical-animal show. The passing strike mechanism can also be repeated by pushing the tail.

This is a limited edition of 5 pieces. Each piece will be unique as each client has the chance to create their own painted background.

John-Mikaël Flaux is a young creator specialising in mechanical art of horology. Based in Besançon, France – the city of French watchmaking – he is also an independent watchmaker candidate to the renowned AHCI in Switzerland.

Through speciality, the art of mechanics, he aims to revisit the world of watchmaking by giving it a more poetic and extravagant dimension: “La Guêpe” (a mechanism in the shape of a wasp), the Car Clock and the Time Fury P18 (clocks in racing automobile form), the automaton “the Duel” (a fight between 2 mechanical fencers).
