MB&F and L’Epée have teamed up once again and recently debuted this 15kg desktop weather station. It features a thermometer to indicate the ambient air temperature, a barometer that shows the air pressure, a hygrometer which records the air humidity and a clock with a L’Epée movement that boasts of an eight-day power reserve. This being MB&F, expect a degree of quirk which you can find by way of a solid bronze alien at the base of the device that will rotate at the push of a button. Only 54 of these weather stations are up for sale and your study room could really use one.
