MB&F continues its run of innovative, inspired timepieces with the Orb, a collaboration with L'Epee 1839. The Orb features a L'Epée-designed and crafted movement, consisting of over 300 components and 17 jewels, housed inside four lacquer-coated aluminum "wings" that can be repositioned at nearly any combination of angles. A series of hinges and magnets allows for a full display of the movement itself or a combination of closed to partially open, along with the included base. The hour-striking function uses a separate movement that chimes the actual hour — not just a single strike — and can be repeated or toggled on or off via buttons on the movement casing. Only 50 Orbs will be produced.
