Thanks to modern technology there’s no excuse to be late for a conference call - even at sea - so no superyacht office should be without a reliable table clock. If you’ve already kitted out your study with the best luxury stationery and the essential superyacht coffee table books, complete the look with one of the most stylish table clocks money can buy.
Take, for example, Jacob & Co's Astronomia table clock. A scaled up version of the brand's beautiful Astronomia wristwatch, the clock features four arms rotating around the dial while performing actions such as operating the gravitational tourbillon and ensuring the time on the off centre dial is properly displayed. Two of the arms are also used to display Jacob & Co's artistic flair with one supporting a lacquered globe and the other a piece of genuine meteorite stone.

Created in collaboration with automaton maker François Junod, the time is told via a ladybird marker at the base of sculpture while the ripple of the lily pad on top awakens the fairy and opens the flower to reveal a fluttering bejewelled butterfly.
