‘Destination Moon’ is a MB&F + L’Epee 1839 Rocket Clock with a Tiny Astronaut Named Neil
Made from 164 components and able to keep time for 8 days from a single winding, I’m digging this rocket-shaped clock from MB&F in collaboration with L’Epee 1839. The piece, titled Destination Moon, stands 40cm tall and weighs 4kg, and a really cute component of the clock is the astronaut ‘Neil’ (made from polished silver with a stainless steel helmet) whom you can see in the images and video below:
