The MB&F “Tom & T-Rex” for the Only Watch auction that will be held on 9 November 2019 is the result of their collaboration with L’Epée 1839. The good folks at MB&F come up with the concept and design while L’Epée 1839 takes care of production.
“Tom” is the figure sitting on top of the “T-Rex” cyborg and is staring down at its “eyeball” – the time display featuring the blue hand-blown Murano glass using two curved hands to indicate the hours and minutes.
Estimated at between US$20,000 and US$40,000, this Tom & T-Rex is a unique piece characterised by the child figure and the light blue Murano glass.
This is the fifth time MB&F is participating in Only Watch. As noted by the brand, their past offerings were creations of unique pieces for Only Watch based on their existing collection.
For the first time for the 2019 Only Watch auction, “MB&F and L’Epée have decided to first present this unique piece of the T-Rex clock”.
Since its beginning in 2005, more than EUR40 million have been raised in the Only Watch auctions where 99% of the proceeds have been channelled directly to research projects in the fight against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, an incurable disease that affects one boy in over 3,000 make births.
