Feast your eyes on real life R2D2- the Melchior Only Watch conceptualised by MB&F and crafted by L'Epée.
Melchior Only Watch is a friendly high-end table clock clothed in palladium-plated brass and steel with bright red shoulder pads, strong metallic arms and legs and a personality highlighted by an animated brain and blinking eyes!
Melchior features jumping hours, sweeping minutes, double retrograde seconds, and an impressive 40-day power reserve drawing from five mainspring barrels. Hours and minutes are displayed via discs on Melchior’s chest, while a dial on his abdomen indicates the state of wind of the long power reserve; a true robot companion you can play with, the upper arms rotate while lower arms pivot up or down – excellent manoeuvrability for aiming a small arsenal at his disposal...
Released in a limited series, MB&F will be donating this final piece of Melchior to Only Watch at an auction taking place in November this year.
