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 noble octopus himself – and I don’t mean the guy who’s always trying to kill The Spirit:
“Octopod’s clockwork is suspended inside its crystalline sphere, so that it appears to be floating in space or water. Like an octopus concealing parts of itself with camouflage, Octopod conceals parts of itself with visual tricks of its own.”
Unless you have a supervillain-like clock budget at your disposal, the MB&F x L’Epée 1839 Octopod clock is probably out of your price range, priced as it is at about $36,000 for one of three limited editions – black, silver, and blue. But you can get a close look at the clock in the video below for free, and check out that press release at the MB&F site right here.
