Following the release of its Bulldog-inspired watch earlier this march, Swiss luxury watchmaker MB&F has returned alongside premier clockmaker L’Epée 1839 for its latest clock, the Starfleet Explorer. Arriving six years after the launch of the Starfleet Machine, the two brand’s latest horological space station exudes a spacecraft-like design fit for exploring the galaxy.

Designed by MB&F and crafted by L’Epée 1839, the Starfleet Explorer has been crafted in stainless steel and hand-lacquered polymer, arriving in three unique colorways of blue, green, or red. Not only does it display the hours and minutes, it also features an animation whereby three spacecraft perform a five-minute orbit around the station. Finishing off the piece is an eight-day power reserve as well as the capability to be manually wound using a key that winds the clock’s movement and sets the time.

Take a detailed look at MB&F and L’Epée 1839’s Starfleet Explorer clock above. Exclusive to 99 units per colorway, they are currently available for 10,700 CHF (approximately $11,000 USD) via MB&F’s webstore.
