Balthazar by MB&F
By SENATUS Watches & Jewelry | 7 March 2017

Weighing in at over 8 kilograms and standing 40 centimetres tall, Balthazar is a sophisticated and imposing high-precision robot clock composed of 618 beautifully finished, micro-engineered components. But beware… Balthazar hides two sides, as there are in all of us.

Light side: boasting 35 days of power reserve, Balthazar's clockwork displays "slow" jumping hours and sweeping minutes via two discs on the chest, while the power reserve is indicated on his belly. His red eyes, which continually scan the surroundings, are actually 20-second retrograde displays.

Dark side: rotate his torso 180 degrees and the absolute nature of Balthazar's darkness is revealed by the cold, hard skull with menacing teeth and deep-set ruby-red eyes. Balthazar's chest also contains a dual hemisphere moon phase.
