STARFLEET MACHINE BLACK BADGER GREEN

MB&F Certified Pre-Owned

STARFLEET MACHINE BLACK BADGER GREEN

For MB&F's Performance Art collection, designer James Thompson - aka "Black Badger" - reinterpreted two MB&F Machines: HMX, first launched in 2015 for MB&F’s 10th Anniversary, and Starfleet Machine, MB&F’s first table clock, which was created with L’Epée 1839. 

For Starfleet Machine Black Badger, Thompson added his exclusive high-efficiency lume under the external ring running around the Starfleet Machine movement, to the inside of the spaceship's landing legs, and the indication domes and hands. The Black Badger touch ensures that Starfleet Machine looks just as good by night as it does by day.

This Starfleet Machine table clock Black Badger edition in palladium-plated brass with lume in 'Radar Green' was limited to only 18 pieces.

As you would expect, our curated MB&F Certified Pre-Owned timepieces go through a full check-up and we ship the piece anywhere in the world, free of charge.

The Creator

L'Épée 1839

Dedicated to making high-end clocks, L'Epée has been a prominent Swiss Manufacture for over 180 years. Founded in 1839 by Auguste L’Epée in France’s Besançon region, the company originally focused on producing music boxes and watch components. The brand was synonymous at the time with entirely hand-made pieces.

From 1850 onwards, the Manufacture became a leading light in the production of ‘platform’ escapements, creating regulators especially for alarm and table clocks, as well as musical watches. It became a well-known specialist owning a large number of patents on exceptional escapements and the chief supplier of escapements to several celebrated watchmakers of the day. L'Epée has won a number of gold awards at international exhibitions.

L'Epée 1839 is now based in Delémont in the Swiss Jura Mountains. Under the impetus of its CEO Arnaud Nicolas, it has developed an exceptional table clock collection, encompassing a full range of sophisticated clocks. All models are designed and manufactured in-house. Their technical prowess, combination of form and function, very long power reserves and remarkable finishes have become signature features of the brand.
