Some individuals look at robots as the arrival of the future promised in programs like The Jetsons. Others see them as dangers. Balthazar, the robotic clock from MB&F x LEpée 1839, plays with these alternate views. On one side is a friendly robotic, with jumping hours and tracking minutes discs on his chest and a power indicator in his belly. Spin him around 180º and youll fulfill a Terminator- like menace coupled with a dual hemisphere moon phase sign. On top is the “brain”, or the regulator for the custom-made in-house motion, and his arms articulate at the shoulders and elbows while his hands can grip objects. One of those is his guard, which functions as a time-setting secret and clock winder for the 35-day power reserve. Minimal to 50 pieces per color in black, silver, blue, or green.
