CLAUDE MEYLAN LAC –« Tortue de Joux »

CLAUDE MEYLAN takes its inspiration from the great tradition of cases shapes and creates « Tortue deJoux » in the LAC line. With its pure and timeless curves associated with a proven mechanical, “Tortue deJoux” introduces a new sculpture of time.

In the middle of the piece of work, dressed with rhodium, the hour and minutes wheels carry the hands into an infinite ballet. The transparencies, such as sunbeams, plays with the contrasts of the matching colours in the bridges and bottom plates. Each hole is recessed, completely decorated and in a harmony of particular shapes; the result is an intriguing transparency and light.
