MB&F has just announced that they will be donating a unique Melchior (co-created with L'Epée 1839) to the Only Watch auction taking place in November of this year. The Melchior, released at Baselworld earlier this year, is a highly functioning robot-form timepiece that was created in a limited series of 99 pieces. This is the 100th piece.
The Melchior features 480 components and functions include: jumping hours, sweeping minutes, double retrograde seconds, and an impressive 40-day power reserve due to the five mainspring barrels. What makes the Only Watch Melchior a piece unique is the red shoulder pads, as the other 99 pieces have stainless-steel shoulder pads.
The Only Watch Auction, in its sixth year, features 44 brands, including MB&F. Each brand has donated a special piece to the auction, which will benefit Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy research. The auction is in partnership with Phillips in association with Bacs & Russo. The auction will take place in Geneva on November 7th.
