MB&F Octopod

MB&F's newest art piece is definitely its most sinister. The Octopod is their latest fantastical collaboration with clockmaker, L'Epèe, who helped whip up this elaborate and artful piece of timekeeping. A polycarbonate sphere sits on eight legs that are constructed out of a 31-piece structure of stainless steel, nickel, and palladium-plated brass. Each of those legs can be articulated to set the Octopod in various poses like the menacing attack pose above. 

Inside the sphere is a "floating" L'Epèe movement that is comprised of 159 components, which is manually wound with a socket key and has an eight-day power reserve. The sphere can also rotate vertically and horizontally in 360 degrees so you can perfectly display the clock to your liking. 

Octopod will be available in black PVD, blue PVD, and palladium and each Octopod is limited to 50 pieces.
