Arachnophobia: Unconventional Spider Table Clock
Inspired by a giant spider sculpture called Maman created by Louise Bourgeois, MB&F founder Maximilian Büsser collaborate with L’Epée 1839 – Switzerland’s only specialised high-end clock manufacture to create this unconventional timepiece – Arachnophobia, the spider clock. Its body is outfitted with a black dome with white numerals depicting the hours and minutes. The escapement was rotated 90° to better represent the head. Attached to the abdomen by ball-and-socket joints are eight, visually enticing legs articulated where they join the body by ball-and-socket joints. The legs can be rotated so that Arachnophobia can stand tall on a desk or splayed flat for wall mounting. Coming with two colors – black or 18k yellow gold, this spider clock costs Swiss Francs 15,300 (USD 15,618) and Swiss Francs 17,500 (USD 17,864) accordingly.
