Matthew Norman’s L’Audacieuse table clock ($14,990) embodies the company’s evolution from a reproducer of traditional carriage and officers’ clocks to a manufacturer of resolutely modern timepieces. L’Audacieuse showcases the brand’s new five-barrel movement with 40-day power reserve and a vertically oriented balance. Constructed so that the movement appears to float in its aluminum case, L’Audacieuse evokes an intricate skeleton watch, but on a much grander scale. Clockmakers in the company’s Delémont, Switzerland, workshops will produce 50 pieces, each endowed with a numbered certificate, while the company records the number of the movement, the name of the watchmaker, and the production date. Matthew Norman’s earlier models—including Symphony, Temptation, and Time Gallery—evoke a moderne sensibility with Art Deco–infused designs that employ Makassar ebony and stingray skin paired with traditional horological engraving styles, such as Côtes de Genève striping.
