. What do an octopus, a traditional marine chronometer and James Cameron’s 1989 film The Abyss have in common? Aside from the obvious aquatic connection, they are all, in part, the inspiration behind this MB&F ‘Octopod’ table clock. Limited to just 50 pieces, it’s designed with Swiss specialist L’Epée as part of an ongoing collaboration between the two houses, and is made up of 309 components, not including the additional 159 that make up the hand-wound movement. The impressive L’Epée 1839-calibre engine has an 8-day power reserve and mechanical escapement that’s mounted on top of the minute hand. Surrounding it is a glass cephalopod-like sphere that’s fully rotational for optimal viewing, as well as eight jointed legs powered by individual buttons that allow you to adjust the height and pose.
