Table Clock Design As Never seen Before

The Octopod by MB&F takes design to new levels of creativity and technical accomplishment.

Think octopus, cephalopods and other eight-limbed creatures. Think marine compass – and the bathysphere from the 1989 classic The Abyss… Put that all together, with 468 fine-finished components, and you get Octopod: the new table clock by MB&F.

Conceived by MB&F and manufactured by Switzerland’s premier clock maker, L’Epée 1839, Octopod successfully blends contemporary design with kinetic sculpture and traditional horology. It stands on eight articulated legs. In Octopod’s completely transparent spherical head, gimballed like traditional ship chronometers, the creature’s brain, mysteriously suspended inside its crystalline sphere – the baseplate of the movement is a virtually invisible, anti-reflective transparent glass plate. Octopod’s eight-day movement is an entirely new development by L’Epée 1839, including a rotating escapement located on the minute hand.

Octopod is available in 3 limited editions of 50 pieces each in black PVD, blue PVD, and palladium (silver).
