MB&F Arachnophobia desk clock is not for the spider haters
MB&F always seems to amaze us with their creations, and definitely Maximilian Büsser has a though process of his own. In MB&F’s latest creation, there is an element of fear and uniqueness which makes it so different. This is Arachnophobia desk clock manufactured in collaboration with L’Epée which is one creepy looking timepiece spider haters won’t love anytime soon. Aptly named, this clock measures almost 40 centimeters when the spider’s legs are fully extended. It can be either put on a desk or mounted in a wall from where you can see time clearly.
The clock is made from 218 different components and the time is indicated by two hands mounted on top of this mechanical spider to represent hour and minutes hand. The mechanical parts are perfectly portrayed as the head and mouth of the huge spider which is worthy of sporting on any plush wall. There is L’Epée 1839 clock movement and you need to wind it up every eight days in order to function properly. This is because of MB&F wants the owner to be closely associated with the timepiece and banish any fears of creepy crawlers if they have any.
Arachnophobia desk clock has eight beguiling legs which can be moved in any way to show the walking movement of the spider or act as a balancing stand if you keep it on the desk. The clock is going to be available in black and 18k yellow gold-plated editions for a hefty price tag of $15,900 and $18,200 respectively.
