Video: L’Epée 1839 and MB&F Octopod

Jason Pitsch

MB&F and L’Epée 1839 have collaborated on numerous futuristic table clocks, and thus far, in this writer’s opinion, all are so good. This time, they may have outdone themselves with one of their most badass table clocks yet: the Octopod. “Think octopus, cephalopods and other eight-limbed creatures. Think marine compass – and the bathysphere from the 1989 classic The Abyss… Put that all together, with 468 fine-finished components, and you get Octopod: blending contemporary design with kinetic sculpture and a transparent bubble filled with traditional horology,” according to MB&F. Designed by MB&F and made in Switzerland by L’Epée 1839, the Octopod can be positioned to stand or crotch thanks to eight articulated legs. A transparent sphere connects the legs houses an eight-day hand-wound movement including a rotating escapement located on the minute hand. Time is read by looking down

Raymond Weil musical themed timepieces

Perhaps associating watches with legendary musicians such as Buddy Holly and Frank Sinatra is a way to attract new buyers or to satiate existing Raymond Weil watch owners with something new. Clearly, though, the target audience is consumers who have a very particular interest in music. People who are fanatical about The Beatles, for example, and there are many of them. This year Raymond Weil introduced no less than three new musical partnership timepieces including a Freelancer dedicated to the late David Bowie ($1,595), a Maestro that pays homage to The Beatles album “Abbey Road” ($1,395), and a Freelancer Chronograph inspired by the Gibson “Les Paul” guitar ($3,195).

Harry Winston Project Z11

There has not been a lot of action from the watch division of Harry Winston since the Swatch Group acquired the company in 2013. Today, though, Harry Winston debuted the Project Z11 which has a case (42 mm x 10.6 mm) crafted from the company’s patent metal alloy Zalium. It is lighter than steel and extremely resistant to corrosion, yet has the appearance of steel basically. The Project Z11 has a skeletonized dial providing a clear view of the mainplate, highlighted by a large date double aperture at 6 o’clock with visible date wheels. Above the date is an off-center hours, minutes, and seconds display. Although it is hard to see the small seconds are indicated by the Harry Winston motif at 6 o’clock on the dial. Additionally, the dial features black hour and minute counter with a rhodium-plated rim,
