A $36,200 Desk Clock That Looks Like A Spider

October 13, 2017


This is the $36,200 Octopod desk clock manufactured by MB&F and L'Epee 1839 (previously: their $16,000 spider desk clock and a $36,000 robot one). They're limited to an edition of 150 ($5,430,000 worth) -- 50 of each with black, blue and silver legs. Now I'm sure the timepiece's movement is super spectacular and all, but still -- $36,200 for something that just sits on your desk and keeps time as good as your phone, but is harder to read? That's ridiculous. I'll take three, one of each color.

Keep going for another shot from above and a video.


Thanks to Dave L, who tells time the old fashioned way: guesstimating by the location of the sun and always being late for everything.

    I can't for the life of me think of a better thing to do with $36,200.

    $36k and it doesn't even move? I can by a nice car that tells me the time, plays my tunes, takes me places and can serve as a home in times of trouble for that.

    For $36K there should be an alarm setting that would at least trigger this thing to crawl into the kitchen and scare the shit out of my wife at 5:00 AM.

    Fuck you mean? I can buy a damn house with that money.

  • GeneralDisorder

    You could buy two houses in my neighborhood for that. Granted, they're not the kind of house that a civilized life-enjoying human-being might want to live in.

    For $36,000 it's legs should move and make it rotate to the second or minute hand at the least.
