This TIE Fighter Music Box Costs A Whopping $18,000 [Video]

At a whopping $18,400+, the MusicMachine 3 just sounds like debt to me.

With an obvious passion for sci-fi, watchmakers MB&F created a TIE fighter-themed music box with an over the top level of craftsmanship. On either side there is an over-sized roller dotted with over 1,400 tiny pins that have each been assembled by hand into 1,400 tiny drill holes. The precision-tuned 72-tooth comb made from special steel alloy plays six distinct tunes including the themes from Star Wars, James Bond, Mission Impossible, The Godfather, Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence, and The Persuaders.

To celebrate its tenth anniversary in 2015, MB&F only issued 99 of these limited edition music makers with the tagline “A creative adult is a child who survived.” And I hope that creative, surviving child of their target market is also a rich one.

Listen to the dainty music box sounds of the Star Wars theme after the break.
