DESTINATION MOON 'Green'
Conceived by MB&F and manufactured by L’Epée 1839, Switzerland's premier clock maker, Destination Moon is the quintessential torpedo-shaped rocket of childhood dreams. But look more closely and you will see that its minimalistic form is evocative rather than definitive.
Hours and minutes are displayed on large-diameter stainless steel discs with stamped numerals. While the legibility of the time display is not in question, focusing on the time rather than the spectacular, vertically-structured, open movement is likely to require deep concentration.
Destination Moon was previously crafted in limited editions of 50 pieces each in black, blue, green or palladium - and now a fifth edition in red!
