mb&f & l’epee 1839: medusa

February 4, 2019

A Captivating Expression Of Time

One thing is for certain: once you have plunged into the depths of Medusa, it’s hard to look away. For its tenth collaboration with L’Epée 1839, Switzerland’s leading clockmaker, MB&F, the top designer of timepieces in the world, takes a dive into the warm ocean waters where intriguing and ancient jellyfish abound.

Medusa is double configuration clock, housed in a hand-blown dome of Murano glass. It can be ceiling mounted or placed on a desk. Medusa’s central section of hand-blown Murano glass calls to mind the bell-shaped body of a jellyfish. Two rotating rings—one for the hours and the other for minutes—are visible through the glass dome, and the time can be read from a single indicator that extends over the rings. A movement beating at 2.5 Hz (18’000 A/h) located below the time indicator, is like the pulsating heart of this mechanical creature.

Double configuration

Medusa can sit on a desk, or another other flat surface, thanks to a specific support with curved legs. This is designed to hold the base of the movement and allow easy access to the mechanism for winding and setting the time.

When the clock is suspended from the ceiling, Medusa changes its supporting legs for hand-blown Murano glass tentacles. Attached to the mechanism, the tentacles move softly with the slightest motion of the clock—recalling the movement of a jellyfish in the ocean currents.

Key points: Designed to evoke one of the most eloquent, yet mysterious creatures of the sea, Medusa blends exceptional artistic technique with Swiss clock-making precision, once again pushing the envelope of possibility.

Plus: Like a luminescent jellyfish in the depths of the sea, Medusa glows in the dark thanks to Super-LumiNova.

Characteristics: Total components: 231; Approximately 6kg; Dome and tentacles in hand-blown Murano glass; Movement and standing base in stainless steel and brass; Indexes with Super-LumiNova; L’Epée 1839 suspended movement, designed and manufactured in-house: Dimensions for the hanging version: 286 mm tall x 250 mm diameter, and for the standing version: 323 mm x 250 mm

Three limited editions of 50 pieces, each in a different color: blue, green, or pink

champagne leclerc briant: cuvee abyss

January 25, 2019

An Exceptional Specialty Vintage

Leclerc Briant, one of the pioneers in biodynamic agriculture, produces champagnes that are unique, chic, and 100% organic.

Biodynamic agriculture, speaking in the ear of the wine

In the world of wine, biodynamic is the reflection and result of a viticulture the respects the vines, the earth, and the winemakers. From the grapes to the bottle, any chemical intervention is forbidden 

Beyond this organic approach, biodynamic agriculture encompasses the cycles of nature with a special attention to the living aspect of the grapes and the vines… The different steps of the production process are based on lunar calendars. For an approach that respects the vines, for example, pruning is only done under a waning moon so that the sap migrates toward the roots. That means the pruning is clean, without spillage.

The Abyss Vintage

Leclerc Briant dedicated a portion of its 2012 harvest to a special vintage that is aged under water. The grapes that comprise this vintage are selected from areas known for their extra chalky soil, and have a perfect resonance with the underwater sediments in the Stiff Bay, near the shores of Ouessant Island in Brittany. After two years in the bottle, this special vintage has been transformed by its time under water by its third year. Abyss champagne evokes both its unique oceanic vibration and the fruity maturity of its vintage.

What goes in the Cuvée Abyss: Chardonnays from Bisseuil, pinots noirs from Avenay-Val-d’Or, and pinots meuniers from Vrigny represent equal parts of this unusual vintage with its unique echoes.

Key points for Champagne Leclerc Briant: With a deep respect for nature and the vineyards, the entire Leclerc Briant winery is certified organic and biodynamic. 

Plus: Ready for market in 2020, another of the “Specialty” vintages is La Croisette. With the goal of making the purest of its wines, Leclerc Briant decided to line the inside of the walls of a barrel with 24-carat gold. Far from the wines with gold flakes, the idea behind this innovation is to obtain fermentation in contact with the gold and see the harmony as the two interact.

Prices: 

“Specialty” vintages, including Abyss: 130 € 

Brut: 38€
