Time Ma­chine

Bespoke - - EMPEROR 1688 -

Con­ceived and de­vel­oped by MB&F and en­gi­neered and crafted by L’epée 1839 – Switzer­land’s only spe­cialised high-end clock man­u­fac­ture – Sher­man is a novel 8-day power re­serve ta­ble clock on tracks, the lat­ter as­pect be­ing why it was named af­ter the Us-made Sher­man tank. Apart from be­ing adorable to look at and quite use­ful as a desk­top or­na­ment (his lit­tle arms can be moved and bent to hold ob­jects like a pen), what makes Sher­man so com­pelling is that the ma­jor­ity of his body is al­most en­tirely made up of horo­log­i­cal parts (like the main­spring bar­rel bridge that sup­port his tracks, move­ment spac­ers for shoul­ders, bolt heads sup­port­ing the reg­u­la­tor for eyes and a reg­u­la­tor that con­trols the time act­ing as his brain). Just 450 pieces will be­made (200 in pal­la­dium-plate and gold plate at 13,800 USD, as well as 50 di­a­mond-set gilded pieces for 33,000 USD).
