Reuge reminds us that "When birds sing, it’s like a flying-visit to heaven; they take ahold of our soul and transport us. Those who listen are reminded of their connection to nature and called back to the beauty of the present moment. There is an unspeakable emotion in a birdsong. Their latest collection of Tabatières named “Enchanting Birds” features a bird automaton and its magical tune in a larger than life creation." To be available in three versions, Blue, Red or Black: all in their crystal clear housings where one can also view and appreciate the mechanical genius and skill that makes this possible.
Upon activation of a lever, the little bird pops out of the automaton where it was hidden from view under an oval cover. This tiny automaton consists of no less than 250 mechanical pieces at work, all assembled by hand in the brand’s atelier in Sainte-Croix.
It flaps its wings and moves every joint of its small body in unison with it's enchanting tune. The spectacle is so accurate that it almost seems like a real bird. The experience of its uncanny realism is a testimony to Reuge's ingenuity and know-how. The complexity behind the movement is the key to its uniqueness.
