Introducing the Octopod, a new eight-legged desk clock from MB&F and L’Epée 1839

The last time the creative geniuses at MB&F released an eight-legged desk clock, they sent horology lovers with a fear of arachnids running for the nearest can of bug spray. Those same folks can rest easy this time around however, as the Octopod is inspired by aquatic life, and can’t be mounted menacingly on walls and ceilings ;).

MB&F has added a new desk clock to its portfolio.

MB&F introduces ‘Destination Moon’, its latest desk clock with L’Epée 1839

After taking us to the depths of the deep blue sea with the incredible HM7 Aquapod, MB&F has its sights on the heavens once again with its newest desk clock, Destination Moon. The Horological Lab designed its newest creation in-house and turned to L’Epée 1839 for the final construction, and the result is stellar.

MB&F is blasting off for the moon with its latest desk clock.

MB&F introduces Balthazar, a robot clock with two personalities

We reckon the creative geniuses at MB&F bathe in a ‘creativity fountain’ because they always manage to surprise us with their beautiful horological creations. The independent brand has just announced its latest mechanical deskclock (it seems wrong to say it’s just a deskclock), a robot with two personalities named Balthazar.

Balthazar has two sides, this is his 'light side'.

MB&F introduces a little robot called Sherman

There’s just no predicting what Maximilian Büsser and his eponymous brand will get up to next. In 2015 MB&F introduced Melchior with two legs, Arachnophobia with eight legs and now, on day one of SIHH 2016, we’ve got… caterpillar treads. No, you aren’t seeing things, and yes, MB&F has a new robot, and the cute little guy is called Sherman.

We're getting a cute Wall-E vibe from MB&F's latest horological robot.
