Melchior, from MB&F and L’Epée 1839, is a 480-component mechanical table clock that just happens to look like something out of a sci-fi film. Designed for a special 10th Anniversary Piece under the theme: “ A creative adult is a child who survived”, Melchior is not only an impressive kinetic robot which may remind you of your childhood dreams, but also an impeccably finished, 480-component mechanical table clock with 40 days power reserve. It is measured on the abdomen dial, a polished glass dome/skull, and eyes with retrograde action that mark off intervals of 20 seconds. Melchior’s Gatling gun arm detaches and doubles as winding key for the movement. This incredible table clock is limited to just 99 pieces with a price tag $36000.

In these days, wall clock is more like a decoration than a device which tells time. Many of us even don’t own a clock at all. Take a look at the interesting clock “Time Is Dancing” designed by German designer Meike Harde. Generally, it is a simple, round clock with a single ballerina on the front. The upper body and two legs are separate pieces that move and bend depending on the hour. As time ticks by, the minimalist design displays minutes and hours through the elegant movements of the dancer – jump, pirouettes or splits. Quite impressive right? I would love to have one at home.
Not sure how many of you still use clocks for time. With the development of the technology, you can check time anywhere at your home – your microwave, your cable box, your computer, your mobile, the need for a special device to show time seems limited. But does that mean we don’t need clock anymore? Functionality-wise, maybe yes, but some clock can offer you more than just display time. They can be playful or a beautiful/unique decoration as well. Here we handpicked 9 Desk Clocks and Table Clocks, each of them has something special hope you like.
