Maximilian Büsser & Friends teamed up once again with Swiss manufacture specialized in high-end clocks L’Epée 1839, to create this intergalactic horological weather station – The Fifth Element. Inspired by fantasies from classic UFO films, books, and comics of the 1950-60s, the weather station features four removable and interchangeable instrument elements clock, barometer, hygrometer, and thermometer – with Ross, the alien pilot, rotating around the UFO’s cockpit.
Measuring 376 mm in diameter x 209 mm in height, the Fifth Element is crafted from 531 fine-finished mechanical components and weighting a total of 15 kg.
The 8-day clock beating at 2.5 Hz (18,000 bph) is designed and manufactured exclusively for this project by L’Epée.
The Fifth Element is available in 3 limited editions of 18 pieces each in Black PVD, Silver and Blue PVD.
