When we talk of awe-inspiring timepieces, we don’t really go beyond Maximilian Büsser & Friends better known as MB&F. No matter how unusual MB&F watch collections may seem, they are incredibly comfortable on the wrist; exactly what makes the artistic watchmakers designs extraordinary. Latest in MB&F’s Horological Machine collection is the spaceship-inspired Horological Machine No.6 (HM6), nicknamed ‘Space Pirate’ – a watch with eye-grabbing corners and gentle curves.

We already had our tryst with MB&F’s exalted Horological Machine in its fifth edition (HM5). And, now the luxury watch maker has unveiled their limited edition of the HM5, re-conceived in the opulence of 18k red gold. The retro essence of the watch design is inspired by automobiles and other ‘futuristic’ contrivances from the 1970’s. Such assortment of influences is quite evident from the use of both titanium (replaces zirconium of the original design) and 18k red gold; while the verve is upheld by the glorious sapphire crystal prism that magnifies the hour and minute indicator discs from the trademark wedge shaped display.
Have a look at this thumping timepiece from MB&F which takes its design cues from the much acclaimed Lamborghini Miura of the early 1970’s and is a bit different from the C3H5N3o9 watch theme. Unlike any other watch that has been featured here, this one truly stands out from the crowd with its unique dial and streamlined design that is irresistible. This is the fifth limited edition Horological Machine on offering by MB&F called HM5 On the Road Again, which also looks inspired from the era of 1970’s. The bi-directional (to set tie both forward and backwards) hour and minute displays have the indications inversed and reflected 90 degrees (using a sapphire reflective prism) in the vertical direction with a magnification (using a lens) of 20% making it look ultra-futuristic.
