Splurge: Prepare for takeoff with MB&F’s “Destination Moon” table clock

Houston, we have a problem — we’re utterly starry-eyed for the Destination Moon clock, co-created by MB&F and L’Epée 1839, which will set you back RM86,850 (€18,350).

With its retro torpedo shape, clever engineering and a smile-inducing silhouette, this table clock is a nostalgic addition to your living space.

Destination Moon
Destination Moon makes a bold and sophisticated centrepiece on your coffee table, with hours and minutes displayed on stainless steel disks.

Destination Moon’s architecture is remarkably similar to the basic engineering of a real spaceship. The clock’s power comes from the oversized winding crown in its base, much like a real rocket ship which gets its main power from its base.

The control systems of a rocket are above the power source, and the same holds true for Destination Moon, which has a vertical regulator underneath the time display.

The eight-day power reserve of the clock comes from the massive crown in its base, which transfers power to the mainspring barrel via the boarding ladder.

Of course, a spaceship needs an astronaut. Look closer, and you’ll spot a delightful detail: A space-suited figure named Neil, forged in solid silver and stainless steel, magnetically attached to the ladder connecting the crown to the movement. This nostalgic nod to Neil Armstrong, the first man who landed on the moon, evokes a childlike sense of wonder.

MB&F designer Stefano Panterotto came up with the minimalist architecture, allowing the viewer’s imagination of the spaceship to take off.

The Destination Moon is available in four limited editions, featuring PVD coatings in black, green, blue or polished palladium (silver) on its “landing pods”. With only 50 pieces of each, its owners will surely be over the moon.
