Designed by MB&F, the Starfleet Explorer is an intergalactic spaceship-cum-table clock crafted by L’Epée 1839, the last remaining Swiss manufacture specialised in high-end table clocks. Besides displaying the hours and minutes, it also features an animation in which three spacecrafts perform a five-minute orbit of the station.
It gets better for the highly visible, superlatively finished in-house movement boasts an exceptional eight-day power reserve.
Bringing something completely new to the table just for you, the Starfleet Explorer also features an original new element in the form of three tiny spacecrafts, lined up along the same axis at regular intervals and placed inside the actual Starfleet movement, the heart of the mechanism, around which they revolve at a rate of one full turn every five minutes: a space exploration guided by none other than the mothership.
Furthermore, this intergalactic masterpiece’s movement is placed horizontally, but its escapement is vertically positioned. The exquisitely finished stainless stain or palladium-treated brass components (with the exception of the 11 jewels) are designed and manufactured in the L’Epee 1839 Swiss atelier.
Not only can the Starfleet Explorer rest on both ends of its vertical landing gear, but it can also be leaned sideways so as to offer a different view of the intergalactic horological station.
The Starfleet Explorer is launched as three limited editions of 99 pieces each in blue, green and red. This timepiece retails at S$16,200, inclusive of tax for all three editions.
