MB&F / L'Epée 1839 / Black Badger

Creativity comes from a multitude of sources, but for ‘Black Badger’ founder James Thompson the fount of his creativity was rage – a rebellious fire was lit when he felt brushed aside as a student by an unfair administrative decision. Like MB&F, Thompson is an outsider doing his utmost to buck the system – and he is fighting with the most unlikely of weapons: luminescent material. Thompson mills three-dimensional objects from solid light, in the form of vividly glowing lume.

The Starfleet Machine Black Badger is a high-precision, 40-day power reserve table clock that looks like a spaceship and Thompson added his exclusive lume under the ring running around the movement, to the backs of the spaceship's landing legs, and the indication domes and hands.

Hours and minutes: curved, hand-polished hands rotate to indicate hours and minutes on a polished, central dome featuring MB&F’s signature numerals.
20-second intervals indicated by double retrograde fly-out cannons emanating from central dome.
A dome indicator, framed by a hand finished arc, provides an intuitive view of remaining energy as it turns 270°. Complemented by a ‘radar dish’ that also revolves 270°.

L’Epée in-house designed and manufactured movement.
Balance frequency: 18,000 bph / 2.5 Hz.
