Table clocks come in different shapes and sizes, but few of them actually resemble robots, and fewer still are signed by reputable companies such as MB&F. Meet Melchior – a high-end, $36,000 table clock that was put together by MB&F in partnership with L’Epée 1839. The piece is limited to just 99 units and comes in two different versions, namely a “light” edition and a two-tone “light and dark” edition that features black PVD-treatment parts.
Melchior comprises a total of 480-components and boasts high quality materials such as brass and steel. Its power reserve lasts up to 40 days before it needs a rewind, which is done by detaching the robot’s left arm. The clock’s highlights include jumping hours, sweeping minutes, a dome cover made out of polished glass and a power reserve indicator located on its “belly”.
