This week on the Superlative podcast, our host and aBlogtoWatch Founder Ariel Adams is joined by Arnaud Nicolas, the CEO of L’Epee 1839. To start the show, Ariel and Arnaud dive into the world of clockmaking and the company’s history, which spans over 184 years. As one of the world’s premier clockmakers, Arnauld gives us insight into what makes his clocks unique and how the world of clockmaking is continuing to evolve today, just in a different manner than wristwatch-making. Ariel asks about the different collaborations that L’Epee is a part of, such as its collaboration with MB&F. The two discuss how Arnaud marries the worlds of model-making and miniatures with timekeeping as he develops his extraordinary clocks that have a feel of uniqueness and fun. Ariel asks about all the materials that are made in-house since there are so many components to any given design created by the company, and what some of the challenges are when trying to source or develop these components. They also converse about some of the different unique models made by L’Epee, and Ariel has Arnaud explain how the unique-sounding striking clocks operate and make the sounds they do. Join us and listen in on the conversation that spills all the details of the world of clockmaking from one of the world’s premier clockmakers. Listen below or on the player of your choice.
