    Urwerk AMC: An “Atomic Master Clock” (Video)

    Back in the 18th century, a clockmaker by the name of Abraham Louis Breguet came up with something called a “sympathique watch,” which was a pocket watch that would be regularly corrected by a precision pendulum clock, so that it could keep more or less perfect time in the user’s pocket. At Baselworld 2018, Urwerk has […]

  • The Fifth Element: An “Intergalactic Horological Weather Station” (Video)

    The Fifth Element: An “Intergalactic Horological Weather Station” (Video)

    “Intergalactic / horological / horological / intergalactic.” That’s probably the Beastie Boys parody I would propose if I were on the board at MB&F, which has collaborated with L’Epée for what they describe as an “intergalactic horological weather station” called, with apologies to Bruce Willis and Luc Besson, The Fifth Element.  The Fifth Element has four pods, each […]

    Octopod Clock from MB&F and L’Epée 1839 (Video)

    A new joint collaboration from L’Epée 1839 and MB&F is a must-own for anyone who believes their home timepieces just aren’t evil enough. It’s the Octopod, said to be inspired by “cephalopods, marine chronometers and The Abyss.” And, naturally, as per the clock‘s official press release, it takes a heavy portion of its design from the […]

    Sandman Doppler: “The World’s Best Alarm Clock”

    Everyone hates getting up to an alarm in the morning, so a product that’s purported to be “the world’s best alarm clock” has either a very low or very high bar to clear, depending on your perspective on the matter. The Sandman Doppler is such a device. The Sandman Doppler seeks to earn its designation […]

  • Seiko x Coca-Cola Clock Collection

    Seiko x Coca-Cola Clock Collection

    Seiko and Coca-Cola have launched a new collaborative collection of retro-styled clocks inspired by the 1960s heyday of Coke merchandise. The Seiko x Coca-Cola clock range is made up of a variety of different clocks in different sizes and designs, all hearkening back to when America trusted Coca-Cola to tell us what time it was […]

  • Etch Clock Engraves the Time Before Your Eyes

    Etch Clock Engraves the Time Before Your Eyes

    When you look at the Etch Clock, it’s hard not to think about that old saying about how any sufficiently advanced technology would seem like magic to the people of a previous era. It’s a clock that, through either science or sorcery, appears to “engrave” the time on its own surface, in real time. For […]

  • UNDERCOVER GILAPPLE Clock: Keep the Doctor Away

    UNDERCOVER GILAPPLE Clock: Keep the Doctor Away

    Say what you will about apples, and God knows every one else has, but you have to admit there’s a reason that luminaries like The Beatles and Steve Jobs chose it as an icon: They have a basic, almost primal visual appeal. It’s that appeal that adds to the UNDERCOVER GILAPPLE, a clock housed in […]

    You may remember the Melchior Robot Clock from last year, particularly if you’re interested in humanoid robot timepieces. Now, MB&F is back with another entry in just that genre: Balthazar, who like his predecessor has a few interesting tricks up his sleeve for the wealthy and discerning clock or gadget collector. Balthazar is a hefty […]
