The Swiss Musical Starship

This is the heirloom music box that transports a listener beyond Earth's bounds with three melodies from space icons Star Wars and Star Trek. Crafted in Sainte-Croix, Switzerland by renowned horologists Reuge, it plays 35-second excerpts from the Star Wars theme, the Imperial March, and the Star Trek theme in layers of rich sound that implies galaxy-spanning sentient design. Taking the form of a minimalist-designed starship, the music box's body is made of black-lacquered walnut with a brass vibration plate that provides optimal resonance, while its twin outriggers are made from anodized aluminum. A nickel-plated brass cylinder treated with resin for sonic clarity rotates via a precise Cartel 4.144 movement, its wire pins are plucked by a 72-note tempered-steel comb in perfect time. Each tooth in the comb is tuned to a specific frequency; lower notes are weighted for optimal sonority and dampened by synthetic "feathers" for mellifluous tone. The second cylinder plays three classic rock songs (The Wall, Smoke On The Water, and Imagine). Special conditions and guarantee limitations apply. This is a limited edition item. Please call for availability. 18 3/4" L x 15 1/2" W x 6 1/2" H.
