Grant / MB&F + L’Epee 1839


Essentially MB&F’s take on a Newton’s cradle or one of those head-bobbing drinking birds, the brand’s latest collaboration with L’Epe?e 1839 is a cross between a tank and a transformer. Dubbed Grant, with three functional, tank-style treads and a large clock face forming a shield on its back, this desk-borne automaton can sit upright, crouch, or lay flat, allowing a specific orientation of not only the actual clock display (again, on Grant’s shield), but also the domed cover that allows a view of the manufacture movement’s balance and many other elements of the overall timekeeping mechanism, which is comprised of some 268 components. Available with blue, black, or nickel accents, each colour version is limited to 50 units and the Grant’s desktop protection will cost you CHF 22,000 — via Hodinkee
