Beam me up! mechanical

€520 €695

This is the automatic mechanical version of the Beam me up! watch.

This watch features a beautiful Swiss movement that is visible through the glass case back.

The 40mm case is also slightly larger than the original quartz (37mm) design.

This playful watch was designed by French Author-Illustrator, Xavier Broche.

Beam me up! is a celebration of the unexplained: a visitor from outer space hovers above a farm, searching for life on our green planet...

A mischievous piglet in the field runs in an endless loop, trying to escape the beam from the UFO.

How to read the time

The time telling on the Beam me up! watch is integrated within the image:

  • The beam emitted by the flying saucer marks the minutes.
  • The position of the pig on the watch face marks the hours.

Xavier explains his inspiration behind the design:

“I wanted to describe an alien encounter in a playful way. I imagined how it would be for a simple pig to be at the heart of this historic event.

I found it funny to imagine the alien travelling endlessly across space searching for intelligent life, only to encounter a bewildered pig at the end of this epic journey!

Don’t worry about the pig though - he’ll outwit the alien in the end!”
