The Fifth Element MB&F + L’EPÉE 1839

Now available at Provident Jewelry!

“The Fifth Element is an intergalactic horological weather station enabling accurate weather forecasting even when the power goes down. Four (UFO) elements: clock, barometer, hygrometer, and thermometer combine in a mother ship (with Ross, the alien pilot) to create an entity much larger than the sum of its parts: The Fifth Element.”

The idea of an analog weather station may seem like an old-fashion idea to some, that is, until a storm hits and your power goes out! The Fifth Element will continue to work on its own and keep you up to date on the time, weather, humidity, and temperature.

While the Fifth element was created to provide you much-needed weather forecasting information, it was designed to look like a space-age out-of-this-world mothership. This design was only made possible to L’Epée 1839, which mastered the precision manufacturing of the intricate series of curves and circles within circles that make up the large structure. The mothership and its interchangeable elements are made up of over 500 individual components making this masterpiece quite unique and complex.


MB&F founder Maximilian Büsser had been looking for a beautiful, vintage desktop weather station for himself for quite some time, but was never able to find the perfect one. With that in mind he set out to develop his own, inspiring him to create the Fifth Element. The design for the Fifth Element was inspired by classic UFO books, films, and comics of the 1950-60s, as well as by desktop weather stations that were popular long before weather forecasts became available on our phones.

The Fifth Element is made up of individual elements that is a strong standalone feature in itself. Each element was designed to feature specific information in a highly original way, while featuring the exposed mechanical features MB&F has become known for. All elements look similar to UFOs and are housed in a single “mothership” designed to bring the weather station together without concealing any of the four elements.


The Fifth Element has four detachable and interchangeable elements including a clock, hygrometer, thermometer, and barometer. They can be used on their own or can be put into their “mothership” together.


One special feature the Fifth Element has, unlike any other desktop weather station is that it features Ross the alien pilot! Ross rotates around the mothership’s cockpit checking that the skies are clear of both clouds and hostile invaders.


The Fifth Element is perfect for any weather enthusiast or someone simply looking for a unique desktop piece that will make a perfect conversation starter.

The Fifth Element is available in 3 limited editions of 18 pieces each in Black PVD, Silver and Blue PVD.
