Unique MB&F Melchior joins Only Watch 2015 auction

When MB&F announced Melchior earlier in the year, it said that it was creating 99 pieces of the roboclock for customers, and that it would create, and donate, the 100th piece to a charity. True to its word, MB&F has just announced the Melchior unique piece for the Only Watch 2015 charity auction.

This is the 100th Melchior roboclock that MB&F talked about briefly, earlier in the year.

MB&F deploys Melchior desk clock

Geneva-based MB&F has turned 10-years old this year and to celebrate the occasion, the Horological Lab will present several anniversary pieces during 2015, under the theme ‘A creative adult is a child who survived’. The stainless steel robot you see here is actually a desk clock that was created in association with L’Epée 1839, and is the first of the anniversary pieces. He is known as Melchior.
