A playful piece of art.
Miki Eleta displays a new kinetic object in a class of its own.
The artist and self-taught watchmaker Miki Eleta, who lives in Zürich, expresses his very own, unusual view of time through kinetic objects that he personally constructs from start to finish in his workshop. A member of the AHCI, Eleta now presents his latest opus, called Tres Caracoles, at BASELWORLD 2014. The complex clock features some of the most sought-after complications from the world of watches, an extremely precise moon phase, a day of the week and a world time indication as well as a retrograde minute. Additionally, Miki Eleta integrated a music work, which plays a unique little tune for about 20 seconds, composed by kinetic principles. Centuries pass before the same sequence is repeated. During the musical phase seven miniature dancers and four musicians give a performance. The clock relies on an Eleta’s own escapement, which has chronometric precision. 2.0, C15

The clock with the Eleta escapement offers a new answer to the problem of friction loss. With the feature of a chronometer escapement it gives an impulse every 2 seconds. Embedded into a clock with second, minute and hour as well as a second pendulum, it allows a very special movement: a self-switching phase of the moon works as a weight. with a stalingly light weight of 200 gramms it reaches a power reserve of 8 days. The clock consists of gold-plated and chrome-plated parts, blue glass, lapis lazuli and cap jewels.
The Eleta escapement provides a new answer to the problem of friction loss. It has charackteristics of a chronometer escapement and gives a pulse every 2 seconds.
