OCTOPOD L'ÉPÉE 1839
Octopod continues MB&F's exploration of aquatic themes with an eight-leg, eight-day clock inspired by cephalopods, marine chronometers and The Abyss – blending contemporary design with kinetic sculpture and a transparent sphere filled with precision horology.
Conceived by MB&F and built by L’Épée 1839, Octopod stands or crouches thanks to its eight articulated legs.
