Working in collaboration with Swiss clockmaker L’Epee 1839, this clock is crafted of Murano glass, precisely hand-blown into the shape of a jellyfish. The pink hue poses the additional challenge of assembling multiple layers of red and clear glass to achieve the right tone.
Due to the fragility of the glass, MB&F and L’Epee 1839 have to figure out a way to wind the clock using only one hand so that the other hand would be free to hold the clock steady. Both the winding and setting systems are thus combined, operable with a propeller at the bottom of the movement. Turning it clockwise sets the time, and anti-clockwise to wind the clock.
There are two rotating rings with the hour on top of the minute, and time is read via a fixed indicator extending over these rings. The clock can be mounted on the ceiling or become a cool accessory on the table.
