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.

MB&F introduces Balthazar, a robot clock with two personalities

We reckon the creative geniuses at MB&F bathe in a ‘creativity fountain’ because they always manage to surprise us with their beautiful horological creations. The independent brand has just announced its latest mechanical deskclock (it seems wrong to say it’s just a deskclock), a robot with two personalities named Balthazar.

Exploring the history of the House of Bovet with Pascal Raffy

The history of the House of Bovet is as interesting as the timepieces that the manufacture creates. The independent brand owes its present success and prominence to Mr. Pascal Raffy, the current owner and CEO. Horology Middle East had the good fortune of meeting Mr. Raffy on his recent visit to Dubai to discuss Bovet, and examine some truly spectacular horological art.

Introducing the MB&F LM1 Silberstein

Now in its 11th year, MB&F continues to dazzle horophiles around the globe with timepieces that quicken heartbeats. Today, the Horological Lab officially unveiled the LM1 Silberstein, and it is by far the most charming and interesting watch we’ve seen from the independent brand yet.

We reckon the LM1 Silberstein will be a hit with regional collectors thanks to its charming design traits, and the availability of titanium cases.

Hands-On: MB&F’s Legacy Machine 1 M.A.D. Dubai

2011 was a big year for MB&F. The independent brand opened its first M.A.D. Gallery (Geneva), and launched the Legacy Machine 1, which introduced the world to the new (at the time) Legacy Machine collection. Since that time MB&F has introduced several Legacy Machines, but today the brand is revisiting the LM1 with a limited edition model, which will be sold exclusively through the recently opened M.A.D. Gallery in Dubai. It’s called the Legacy Machine 1 M.A.D. Dubai, and it has one of the most beautiful watch dials we’ve ever seen.
