MB&F sought to break the mold in the watchmaking industry with one simple concept, “to assemble collectives of independent watchmaking professionals to develop radical horological masterpieces.” By doing so they offer watch and timepiece enthusiast an alternative to the traditional. Locally, Provident Jewelry -one of only two authorized retailers in Florida- brings these creations to South Florida including their newest release, the OCTOPOD.
The table clock counterpart to the HM7 Aquapod wristwatch, the OCTOPOD was co-created with MB&F and L’Epée 1839 as 3 limited editions of 50 pieces each in black PVD, blue PVD, and palladium (silver).
About the OCTOPOD
Inspired but eight-legged creautres from the ocean’s depth, the OCTOPOD’s look mimics that of an octopus or other cephalopods. It’s “body” was inspired but the bathysphere from the 1989 classic The Abyss blended with a marine compass. Overall, you get 468 fine-finished components blended with contemporary design, a kinetic sculpture and traditional horology.
The OCTOPOD was conceived by MB&F and manufactured by Switzerland’s premier clock maker, L’Epée 1839. Its eight articulated legs allows it to either stand or crouch. Inside the completely transparent head, gimballed like traditional ship chronometers, lies the creature’s brain suspended inside its crystalline sphere. OCTOPOD’s eight-day movement is an entirely new development by L’Epée 1839.
