STARFLEET MACHINE Chocolate Edition
StarfleetMachine, is the first co-creation between MB&F and L’Épée 1839. It is an intergalactic spaceship-cum-table clock featuring hours and minutes, double retrograde seconds and power reserve indicator.
The central hours and minutes dome bears MB&F’s signature numerals, while the bars on the power reserve indicator are framed by the dome’s supporting hand-finished arc. As the massive 40 days of power runs down, the dome slowly rotates 270°, and rotates back the other way when the clock is wound up. The accompanying radar dish rotates at the same speed as the power reserve indicator.
DISPLAY: Hours and minutes on a central dome featuring MB&F’s signature numerals. 20-second intervals indicated by double retrograde fly-out cannons emanating from central domeSIZE: Approx. Ø 29 cm, H: approx. 21 cm
Transparent 'biosphere' dome: Ø 31.5 cm / H: 27 cm
POWER RESERVE: The highly visible, superlatively finished in-house movement boasts an exceptional power reserve of 40 days, thanks to the five mainspring barrels (in series for optimal performance)
