Product Story

This is the heirloom music box crafted in Sainte-Croix, Switzerland by renowned horologists Reuge that transports a listener beyond Earth's bounds with a suite of mellifluous melodies. Reminiscent of an iconic spaceship from a “galaxy far, far away,” the music box plays 35-second excerpts from the themes of Star Wars, Mission Impossible, James Bond, and The Godfather in layers of rich sound that implies galaxy-spanning sentient design. Twin horizontally mounted, nickel-plated brass cylinders rotate within each wing via precise Cartel 3.72 movements—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. One of only 33 handmade by a one of the world’s master lutheries, the music box’s black-lacquered walnut base provides optimal resonance when receiving sound vibrations from the twin anodized aluminum wings. Special conditions and guarantee limitations apply. Please call 1-800-227-3528 for details. 18 3/4" L x 15 1/2" W x 6 1/2" H. (13 1/4 lbs.)
