The Starfleet Machine desk clock is a breathtakingly intricate timepiece inspired by the fictional Deep Space Nine station from Star Trek. The watch was crafted by famous Swiss watch designer L'Epee with the help of micro-engineering expertise from the MB&F lab.

The Starfleet Machine features many of the mechanisms seen in wristwatches but scaled up in size. The clock displays hours, minutes, double retrograde seconds and a power reserve indicator; the clock's power reserves last for 40 days. This may not sound special but what's special about the Starfleet Machine is the way it incorporates these elements into its spectacularly detailed space-age design.

The Starfleet Machine is a limited-edition collector's item, with only 175 units being manufactured. Purchasers can choose between light and dark colored versions. It will retail for just over $31,000. Stats for Futuristic Galactic Clocks Trending: This Year & Buzzing
