Here’s a watch you probably wouldn’t want to gift Ron Weasley, unless you dearly wish to be hit with an Unforgivable Curses. Harry Potter references aside, this is probably one of the most innovative watches that has crawled up off-late. Called the Arachnophobia, for obvious reasons, this watch tells the time and manages to creep out quite a few people, exceptionally well! Created by MB&F and crafted into being by L’Epée 1839, Arachnophobia is inspired by Maman, a monumental spider sculpture by the late French-American artist and sculptor, Louise Bourgeois. With a power reserve of 8 days, the Arachnophobia watch sports a modified high-end L’Epée clock movement, disguised as the spider’s head and torso. With a black dome and white numerals to display hours and minutes, this watch also sports eight articulated legs!
While the legs keep the Arachnophobia upright on table tops, this one can also be installed on walls, like a true spider. The watch isn’t as big as the sculpture that inspired it, but it still manages to draw a lot of attention, particularly if you’ve got it propped up on your office desk. The Arachnophobia is available in a black version ($15,800) as well as a more eye-catching 18k gold-plated edition. ($18,050)
