That’s not a spaceship, it’s a clock. It may have been inspired by spacecraft design, given MB&F calls this joint project with L’Epée the Starfleet Explorer clock, but in the end, it’s here to elegantly ground your daily grind by making counting the hours a little more fun. Continue reading MB&F AND L’EPÉE LAUNCH OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD STARFLEET EXPLORER DESK CLOCK
An entirely new MB&F is always an exciting thing. The brand has yet to make something that can be categorized as a ‘normal’ watch, and also their latest creation refuses to fit in. The Horological Machine No.10, or HM10 in short, is inspired by a bulldog and comes with ‘eyes’ that tell the time and a jaw that serves as a power reserve indicator. Continue reading MB&F Launches the HM10 Bulldog
Maximilian Büsser & Friends have ventured into the sky and outer space, and even onto race tracks with their previous creations; this time they looked into the sea and came up with the HM7 ‘Aquapod’. Continue reading Presenting The HM7 ‘Aquapod’ From MB&F
MB&F is no stranger to making unexpected and whimsical timepiece creations (or as the brand likes to like to call them, horological machines). Although young by watchmaking standards, the 14-year old company boasts an impressive archive of mechanical marvels shaped like robots, sea creatures, spaceships, and more. Now, in perhaps their most surprising move yet, MB&F releases its first ladies’ timepiece—and it is a beauty! What we have here is the Legacy Machine FlyingT, available in three different variations. Continue reading MB&F Dedicates The Legacy Machine FlyingT To Women
With MB&F you sometimes wonder how they can move on to the next watch based on their past creations. As both their designs as well as their movements are cutting edge, it is hard to see the next logical step, at least when you name is not Maximilian Büsser and you founded the brand. The challenge is to not only offer a new watch with an incredible wow-factor but also to inject it with sufficient MB&F-DNA and have it as a natural extension of the current collection. With the introduction of the new MB&F HM9, we can say once again; mission accomplished! Continue reading The New MB&F HM9: Pushing The Envelope To The Next Level
While MB&F can be a brand of radical changes, with horological creations that often tantalize the senses of watch connoisseurs by boldly going where no watch brand has gone before, they are also the brand of evolution. Once another whole new creation leaves they workshops they take time to explore the possibilities of this model, often with a little help from their friends.
MB&F launched the first Horological Machine in 2007, positioning itself as an independent watchmaker primarily interesting in futuristic design. Ten years and eight Horological Machines later, (MB&F actually skipped over the HM7 a few months ago when it released the HM8), Max Büsser and his friends have remained steadfast in their mission, creating watches that look as if they were made without any standard watch parts at all. That is not longer true after today. The diver’s bezel is one of the most instantly recognizable elements of modern watchmaking, and, in a departure from form, Büsser has made it one of the chief design elements of the HM7.
