When it comes to creating ground-breaking watches, luxury Swiss horological design house MB&F loves to do things differently. Only recently, at the SIHH 2016 (Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie Genève), the watchmaker unveiled Sherman, a friendly robot watch that’s more than just a steampunk dream come true. Built in partnership with the legendary watch brand L’Epée 1839, Sherman is a 143mm tall robot watch, complete with miniature caterpillar tracks! Apart from telling the time in an extremely cool way, Sherman also works well as a guest assistant. The robot’s hands can be used to grasp pens and are movable.
Sherman can be moved around on his caterpillar tracks, making the watch a great distraction on a terrifically boring afternoon at work. The transparent blown mineral glass dome, which doubles up as the robot-watch’s head, gives owners a peek at the mechanical interior of the watch. The watch’s movement features 148 components with 17 jewels. Sherman is available in two finishes, gold and palladium. Only 200 examples will be created of the gold and palladium versions, each. A diamond-set version of Sherman will show up soon too. Sherman will be available for sale online, with a price tag of $13,000.
