Established by Maximilian Busser in Geneva back in 2005, Switzerland’s MB&F carved out its own dedicated following long ago thanks to some of the most intricate and unique timepieces you’ll ever find — just see the $30,000 USD Nixie Machine II for proof. Now, after dropping the Can-Am-inspired Horological Machine No. 8 last September, MB&F is revisiting the realm of wearables with its latest wristwatch: the “Alien Nation.” An updated rendition of 2014’s “Space Pirate” Horological Machine No. 6, the futuristic “Alien Nation” sports a case made entirely of sapphire crystal, coupling twelve individual blocks together that were machined and polished over the course of 510 hours. Inside, the case houses six little aliens throughout — each of which is individually sculpted by engraver Olivier Kuhn in white gold. And the amount of time needed to complete each alien? A staggering 34 hours.

Limited to just four production models, the painstakingly crafted “Alien Nation” edition of Horological Machine No. 6 will set you back a cool $500,000 USD.
