MB&F is best known for its high-quality craftsmanship in the realm of authentic Swiss watches, but the company has decided to flex its design and engineering muscles in a different direction and come up with an extraordinary desk weather station that takes much of its inspiration from outer space.

The Fifth Element desk weather station features a thermometer, hygrometer, barometer and clock all situated in a brass flying saucer, with a miniature metal extraterrestrial creature manning the vehicular design. The ornament features an air-controlled movement which, when switched on, causes the miniature alien pilot to rotate around the ship.

Desk weather stations have long been some of the most gorgeous ornamental home apparatuses, which makes it all the more impressive that MB&F has managed to break new design ground with an age-old decorative system.
