Video: Introducing the MB&F and L’Epée 1839 Fifth Element Table Clock and Weather Station

Watchonista sat down with MB&F’s Chief of Communications to find out more about this extraordinary machine.

What do you get when you cross an alien with a thermometer, a barometer, a hygrometer, and a mechanical clock? Well, in the case of MB&F and L’Epée 1839, you get something that looks like it was on the movie set of a 1997 science-fiction film starring Milla Jovovich and Bruce Willis. In other words, you get The Fifth Element.

This is the brand’s latest collaboration with L’Epée – their eighth over the last four years according to Charris Yadigaroglou, who agreed to explain a little more about what exactly makes this latest weather station/table clock tick. But before you watch the video, make sure you have your multipass handy because the mothership has landed, and you never know when you might run into LeeLoo Dallas.
