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.

Balthazar has two sides, this is his 'light side'.

MB&F HMX & Starfleet Machine get a dose of smoldering rage

When you pair a creative horological think-tank like MB&F with the likes of creative types such as Black Badger’s James Thompson, super interesting things can, and will, happen. The proof is in the pictures, MB&F has just announced the HMX Black Badger (below) and the Starfleet Machine Black Badger at BaselWorld 2016.

The HMX's stylish case is made of grade 5 titanium and stainless steel.

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 introduces a little robot called Sherman

There’s just no predicting what Maximilian Büsser and his eponymous brand will get up to next. In 2015 MB&F introduced Melchior with two legs, Arachnophobia with eight legs and now, on day one of SIHH 2016, we’ve got… caterpillar treads. No, you aren’t seeing things, and yes, MB&F has a new robot, and the cute little guy is called Sherman.
