MB&F and L’Epee 1839 have, through their partnership, created the most interesting form of a clock: a robot. Yes, the two brands have created robot clocks that utilize both brands’ expertise in both craftsmanship and engineering. Their first robot clock was called Sherman, but they have since given him a bigger brother named Grant. This new creation was named after the American M-3 Grant tank. Just like the tank, this Grant packs firepower in the form of a spinning disk on his left hand and grenade launcher in his right hand. He even has rubber tracks that allow him to roam around.
Additionally, Grant can change his position from lying flat to crouching to sitting up. No matter what position he’s in, his 268-component movement is on display. Only 50 examples of Grant will be created and will be available in either nickel, black or blue. They come with a price tag of around $22,800 USD.
