There’s something about Steampunk-customized gadgets that really grabs a geek’s attention. Not only are these devices aesthetically pleasing, but they can send a modest man into bankruptcy.
With that said, check out my latest discovery: The Horological Machine No. 2. If you are interested in acquiring MB&F‘s newest Steampunk-like creation, you’ll have to shell out a cool $59,000.
This timepiece offers the following features: instantaneous jump hour, concentric retrograde minutes, retrograde date and bi-hemisphere moon phase. Here are a few pictures of the masterpiece for you to admire.
Pretty isn’t it? Considering that I just finished reading Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy, this watch really makes me think of some of the devices that are used throughout the books. If you are a fan of fantasy stories and haven’t read the series yet, I highly recommend that you do so. Also, New Line Cinema will soon release The Golden Compass, the movie that retells the first part of the story.
