We all know about Only Watch event. This year it will feature 50 pieces from 52 brands. Don’t ask me why there are more brands, but today we are going to talk about one of the upcoming items. Well, this is a quite unusual clock – MB&F + L’Epée 1839 for Only Watch : Tom & T-Rex. Swiss masters are famous for their crazy ideas, and this one won’t disappoint you. I think there is no point to discuss technical data and blah blah blah. Instead, let’s name 5 reasons why you should bid on this clock. 🙂
By the way, here you can read review with another unusual watch.

1. Unusual Design
Surprise, surprise – you won’t get a simple clock here. Instead this thing is designed as unusual mechanism on two legs. It is shiny and polished so I recommend to place it on the most visible spot on your table. Nevertheless, this is not a classic glossy shine. Instead, designers decided to add visual interest with help of satin surfaces on legs. In my opinion whole composition looks good.
2. It Is Big
Say what you want, but true clock should be big. In my opinion T-Rex should be big too, so that’s why new creation is 26 cm tall! Add here the fact that whole assembly is made out of stainless steel and it will make whole weight equal to hefty 2kg. Still I would keep my cat away because furry friend can easily topple this clock. 😀
3. No Boring Clockfaces
What? You expected digits and readable layout? This is complete no-no here, and if you had such weird thoughts, you need to reassess your views. 🙂 MB&F + L’Epée 1839 for Only Watch : Tom & T-Rex features bright blue Murano glass right where the clockface should be. This is not just plain simple piece of glass because it would be boring. Here we get “blue donut” which looks like portal to another dimension. By the way, authors call it as “eyeball”.
By the way, hands carefully repeat shape of the clockface dial!
4. Open Movement
One half of my mind cries that all this stuff will need cleaning everyday because otherwise it will be dusty in several days. Another half is happy as kid because you get to see movement of this clock. Each part finished with careful attention. I also have no doubt that this clock will be loud-ticking. This is love-it-or-hate-it feature. Of course, I love it. Winding is done with help of special key which is also used for setting the right time. Power reserve equals to 8 days of loud ticking.
5. Rare and Helpful
This clock is truly unique because only new model will feature Tom – rider which sits on top of T-Rex. Whole lineup will be introduced later, but those will be clock without tiny guy. Another important thing is helping – Only Watch auction contributes to research in curing neuromuscular diseases. By bidding on this watch you would also help kids in need…
MB&F + L’Epée 1839 for Only Watch : Tom & T-Rex – Price???
Nope, nada, there is no price and don’t even ask about it. As I mentioned earlier, clock will be sold on the special auction, so final price might go out in space. Nevertheless, I am glad to know that the higher price will be, more help kids will get. By the way, whole Only Watch collection will be travelling around the world, so I recommend to check its route.
