No longer content with selling their popular watch accessories, Hodinkee has decided to bank on warp drive-capable, interstellar spaceships. Ok, so they're not giving up on their bread and butter, but this time around they've really outdone themselves.

They've teamed up with the horological master craftsmen at MB&F and heritage music box creators Reuge to create a special edition MusicMachine. This hybrid art piece and feat of impressive and intricate engineering is a highly sophisticated music box that plays tunes from Star Trek, Star Wars, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, and The Clash. The MusicMachine 2 for Hodinkee is available today and limited to five pieces.
