Stellar table clock
This avant-garde neo-Egyptian table clock with the signature starry sky built on a polished, blue concave mirror.
The table clock’s cabinet is in bronze and is doubled with an 18k yellow gold shell. Two sphinxes – eternal time guardians – surround the time display on top of the small bracket with the guilloché decoration that houses the manual-winding mechanism with 8-day of power reserve.
The mesmerizing sky is filled with white gold stars and diamonds and is surrounded by rings and yellow gold roman numerals that indicate the time. At the center, we find a round moon in sandy steel on one side and a blue polished mirror on the other side that indicates the different phases of the star. The piece’s precision can be compared to a lunar month: one day for 1,225 years; that is 457 times more precise than classic moon-phases.
