MB&F Starfleet Machine clock BaselWorld

At Baselworld 2014 conceptual micro-engineering lab MB & has put on show a very unique timepiece designed by L’Epée, Switzerland’s only remaining specialised high-end clock manufacture founded in 1839.

Divine Music Box: Limited edition Westime MusicMachine with bright blue fuselage

Westime MusicMachine

If you even faintly remember the MusicMachine made by MB&F in collaboration with Reuge, then you’d definitely fall for the limited edition MusicMachines in bright blue fuselage. Created by California’s Westime this is simply an electrifying and colorful enhancement of the original MusicMachine, which if we may, is a high-end desktop music box with time-honored innards of a traditional music box. The MusicMachine is made in white or black lacquered walnut wood for sound amplification, and plays six songs on a pair of metal barrels – one of them is dedicated to sci-fi themes, and the other for rock and roll.

MB&F releases the limited edition of HM5 with $82,000 price tag

MB&F's limited edition of HM5

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.

Truly accurate MB&F Legacy Machine 2 wristwatch features dual regulator

MB&F Legacy Machine 2 wristwatch

There is no watchmaking company that inspires us the way MB&F ((Maximilian Büsser & Friends) does. MB&F thrives on the idea of creating spectacular historical watches that represent innovation, design and engineering to the utmost level. Case in point is the all new Legacy Machine No 2, a wristwatch that draws inspiration from Philippe Dufour’s Duality watch. The Legacy Machine No. 2 (a.k.a. LM2) is a successor to the really popular Legacy Machine No. 1, which was recognized as the best men’s watch at Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Geneve (GPHG) in 2012.

MusicMachine – Reuge by MB&F plays music from galaxy far, far away

MusicMachine music box

If you thought music box was a thing of the past, MB&F has taken a leap over time-telling creations (its best known for) and has created MusicMachine, a music box that looks and sounds unlike anything we’ve seen or used before. A high-end desktop music box, the MusicMachine made by MB&F in collaboration with REUGE features all the time-honored innards of a traditional music box but (as visible) in a very unconventional design, simply in order to appeal to all space-age junkies like ourselves.

MB&F Horological Machine HM5 watch On the Road Again

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.
