Jardin d'Eden - cuckoo clock
Christofle and Marcel Wanders studio celebrates the 10th anniversary of the iconic Jardin d’Eden collection. This reunion and collaboration includes a capsule collection representing the seven deadly sins, an exceptional Haute Orfèvrerie piece and new flatware. These new designs enrich the Jardin d’Eden collection, recognizable by its iconic signature motif: interlacing leaves, winding vines and a decorative apple sprawled against a geometric matrix. All are evocative of a luxuriant garden.
AN ELABORATE MECHANISM
The weight watch mechanism gives real added value to this piece and this has the added advantage that there are no electrical constraints, no batteries and therefore no handling for unequal autonomy. The cuckoo clock mechanism is a 3-weight clock mechanism: each weight is associated respectively with the clock, the sound and the animation. These same weights give the clock an autonomy of 6 days. As the hours go by, the weights of the clock will drop naturally and to wind them up it will be sufficient to hold the weight and pull on the corresponding chain.
The clock can be rewound at any time, at the discretion of its owner.
The pendulum is 50mm in diameter, which ensures the correct operation of the clock and its adjustment, which is obtained once the pendulum is positioned on the graduated ruler.
The case conceals the automaton mechanism and allows invisible wall mounting.
A timeless piece
The fruit of 135 hours’ work and close collaboration between one of our master silversmiths, a highly skilled Meilleur Ouvrier de France craftsman, and an automaton maker, this unique piece pairs the master silversmith’s know-how (assembly, plating and polishing) with traditional clockmaking expertise. The mechanism allows you to tell the time, while bringing it to life. The Garden of Eden’s narrative world, creativity and know-how combine in this extraordinary object to be admired in amazement.
