This robotic clock is far from the one you had as a kid with a digital display planted in Optimus Prime’s plastic stomach. Melchior, from MB&F and L’Epée 1839, is a 480-component mechanical table clock that just happens to look like something out of a sci-fi film. Complete with a 40-day power reserve that’s measured on the abdomen dial, a polished glass dome/skull, and eyes with retrograde action that mark off intervals of 20 seconds, it’s as much a high-end table clock as it is a work of futuristic art. Melchior’s Gatling gun arm detaches and doubles as a winding key for the movement. Available in two different editions—’Light’ and ‘Dark and Light’—the incredible clock is limited to just 99 pieces.
