Inspired by a giant spider sculpture called Maman, Arachnophobia is the result of the collaboration of MB&F with L’Epée. The body is outfitted with a black dome with white numerals depicting the hours and minutes. The head of the spider houses the regulator with its oscillating balance wheel beating at 18,000 vibrations per hour while the other end contains the mainspring barrel, which powers the movement. The escapement was rotated 90° to better represent the head.
Attached to the abdomen by ball-and-socket joints are eight, visually enticing legs articulated where they join the body by ball-and-socket joints. The legs can be rotated so that Arachnophobia can stand tall on a desk or splayed flat for wall mounting.
Arachnophobia is available in black or 18k yellow gold-plated editions with prices of Swiss Francs 15,300 and Swiss Francs 17,500 accordingly.
