Spectacular Starfleet Machine Timepiece

Do you struggle to keep track of the time you've spent arguing the strengths of Deep Space Nine against an onslaught of Next Generation opposition? Then do we have the clock for you.

This elegant table dweller is the Starfleet Machine, a brass and stainless steel clock by L’Epée 1839. We won't be giving away prizes for guessing when they were established, but the Swiss manufacturer has been making clocks longer than we've been dreaming of starships - and this table clock hides a wealth of mechanical tricks.

Hours and minutes are indicated on the central black dome by hand-polished hands that follow the dome's curved contours. Behind, a smaller rotating dome - accompanied by a revolving radar dish - provides a view of remaining energy in its 40 day power reserve - there are now dilithium crystals here.

The best motion hidden in the Starfleet Machine occurs every 20 seconds, when the turret-mounted laser cannons complete their back-and-forth scan.

Limited to a run of 175 pieces and available in ‘light’ or ‘dark’ editions, there's no word on price yet, but you can expect some pretty astronomical numbers. Check out the video below to see it in action.
