MB&F’s HM7 Aquapod goes green and gives us serious envy, again!

A little over 12 months ago, MB&F gave the world its first aquatic inspired timepiece in the form of the stunning Horological Machine 7 (HM7). Today, the brand has announced a new green version and it has nothing to do with sustainability (in case you were wondering :P). So, whereas the HM7 was previously only offered in red-gold with a black ceramic bezel (66 pieces) and titanium with a blue ceramic bezel (33 pieces), there’s now a titanium reference with a green sapphire crystal bezel, which is limited to 50 pieces.

It’s back and it’s as green as we are envious ;).

Introducing the MB&F Horological Machine 7 Aquapod, an aquatic-inspired HM that’s actually round!

MB&F exists to push boundaries, and after crafting wonderful timepieces that were inspired by space, the sky, as well as road and track, the independent horological lab has now delivered its first aquatic timepiece. It looks like a mechanical jellyfish, it’s called the Horological Machine 7 Aquapod (HM7 Aquapod), and it’s amazing.

The HM7 in titanium features a blue bezel, and is limited to 33-pieces.

Introducing the MB&F HM8 CAN-AM

Long time readers of this site know that MB&F is a progressive brand, and if you want to truly experience its horological mastery, a watch from the ‘Horological Machine’ family has to be sampled. The Horological Machines (HM) are a delight for the eyes and now there’s a new one, and no, it isn’t called the HM7. What you see below is the stunning MB&F HM8 CAN-AM.

Feast your eyes on the gorgeous HM8, here in rose-gold and titanium.

M.A.D. Gallery Dubai brings mechanical kinetic art to the region

Dubai is the location that independent horological lab MB&F has chosen to open its third M.A.D. Gallery. M.A.D. (short for Mechanical Art Devices) is a concept that was launched in 2011 with the opening of the first gallery in Geneva, on Rue Verdaine, just a short distance away from MB&F’s offices. Since then, MB&F has opened a M.A.D. Gallery in Taipei and, now, Dubai.

Maximilian Büsser and Chicara Nagata greeted visitors at the official opening of the M.A.D. Gallery Dubai.

MB&F’s unveils the HM6 SV at SIHH 2016

Talk about making an entrance. MB&F is showing the world of horology just what it can do at its first SIHH participation, with its new Horological Machine 6 Sapphire Vision (HM6 SV). While this piece may look like just an update of the HM6, it’s actually much more than that. Think about it, how many watches feature cases where the main element is sapphire crystal rather than metal?

In our minds, the Space Pirate's movement is now protected by an invisible force field ;).

MB&F’s HM6 Space Pirate gets a gold makeover

When MB&F released its Horological Machine 6 Space Pirate back in 2014, it caused quite a stir. To some (like us), it was a staggering display of mechanical mastery and to others, it was an oddball that they didn’t understand. Recently however, fresh validation for the HM6 came from the Red Dot Design Awards, where MB&F walked away with a big win. The validation prompted a celebration, and thus the HM6 Space Pirate RT was unleashed with a rose-gold case.

If you love the original HM6 Space Pirate but titanium is a little too plain for you, there's a new rose-gold option on the table.
