MB&F's Basel Special

MB&F introduces a horological weather instrument for Baselword 2018.

An intergalactic horological weather station, the Fifth Element gives an accurate reading of the weather even without power. Equipped with a clock, barometer, hygrometer, and thermometer, the analog weather station is the perfect display for your table.

A confluence of childhood fantasies from the classic UFO films, books, and comics of the 1950s – 60s, the Fifth Element is a tribute to the vintage desktop weather stations. Built in collaboration with L’Epée 1839, the only manufacture of high-end clocks in Switzerland, the instrument also features a second independent clockwork mechanism supported on the bearings in the base and can be activated by a push- button. This enables Ross the alien pilot to slowly rotate around the mothership.

The horological instrument is available in 3 limited editions of 18 pieces each in Silver, Black, and Blue.
