For the watch collecting dad
MB&F x L’Epée ‘s 1839 Orb
Time and again, the world of haute horology impresses us with stylistic designs and sophisticated engineering that put the art of clock making at the forefront of artisanal craftsmanship. A case in point is the 1839 Orb, the collaborative creation of two renowned Swiss maisons in the world of luxury watch making, MB&F and L’Epée.
This sleek, spherical clock is designed with four elytra (wing-like) panels that swivel open to reveal the timepiece in all its mechanical glory. The orb is powered by an 1839 hour-striking movement, with an 8-day power reserve. Just like Big Ben, it chimes every new hour, but can also be switched off at the user’s discretion. Available in black or white, if this doesn’t impress your watch-loving dad, we don’t know what will!
