MB&F joins premier Swiss clockmakers L’Epée 1839 once more, this time for the MEDUSA jellyfish clock. Known for its innovative horological masterpieces, that often double as art, MB&F’s latest timekeeper does not deviate from the watchmaker’s ethos the slightest bit.

Now onto its 10th collaboration with L’Epée 1839, this MEDUSA clock sees a hand-blown Murano glass shroud that takes the shape of a jellyfish; a shape that is even more evident when the MEDUSA’s glass tentacles are equipped. A the heart of this clock is L’Epée’s in-house suspended engine (movement), which weighs a massive 2kg, has a power reserve of 7 days, and is made from 155 components with 23 jewels.

One of the key features of the MEDUSA clock is its dual-configuration design which allows the clock to be hung from the ceiling with glass legs, or placed on a table via a metal frame with curved-metal legs. Coming in choice colors of blue, green and pink, each color will be limited to 50 examples and priced at around $27,000 USD.
