MB&F’s $36K Octopod Clock Is the Robotic Cephalopod Conversation Piece You Didn’t Know You Needed

If you’re a Jules Verne devotee who is constantly late for meetings, look no further. We have your solution, and it’s a great conversation starter, too.

The Octopod Clock from MB&F is an eight-legged robotic creation that takes its inspiration from the sea. Designed to look like a cephalopod, the unique device is both contemporary and charmingly bizarre with eight steel legs and a transparent center sphere. With its mechanical evocation of biological form, it could well have sprung from the imagination of a 19th-century fabulist.

The gravity-defying sphere rotates 360 degrees to enhance the mysterious illusion of the device, while also making sure the time is always readable.

The eight-day clock crouches on articulated legs while the center spherical “head” reveals its escapement and the current time. Octopod features a L’Epée in-house movement with an eight-day power reserve and 159 components.

MB&F’s unique creation is available for $36,000 in 3 options of blue PVD, black PVD, and palladium. Each edition is limited to just 50 pieces.
