Introducing: The MB&F HM7 Aquapod, The First Aquatic Horological Machine
Of course, he’s finished something very surprising with it. Rather than laying it on top of the case, where one generally finds a bezel, Büsser has encircled the twofold domed case with the bezel. It winds up looking practically like Saturn’s rings – which isn’t what the watch is intended to resemble – however the outcome is amazing. One of the incredible joys of MB&F’s occasionally oddly formed horological machines as a rule comes not when the watch sits on the wrist, but rather off, finding the watch from a wide range of points. What’s more, the spic and span Horological Machine No. 7 may be the producer’s most three-dimensional creation to date. There essentially isn’t one straight edge to it – even the carries are significantly angled and explained.
From the top, the HM7 is conspicuous as a jump watch, in spite of the focal tourbillon and monstrous sapphire dome.
When the lights go out (or you’re investigating the profundities of the sea) you can in any case appreciate the HM7.
Something to move in advance is that the HM7 is huge. Incredibly, huge. Indeed, it’s the biggest machine in an assortment of huge machines. Bezel and all, the watch gauges an incredible 53.8mm across, and yes that implies the HL7 is round! This is a first in the HM line as well. In light of its new development, it sits high on the wrist too, being 21.3mm. Better believe it, you read that right, 21.3mm.
From the side, the HM7 truly resembles a small sub.
For its Horological Machine No. 7, MB&F chose to make its absolute first plunge watch.
The HM7 was planned by Eric Giroud and acknowledged by a group of 49 companions including Büsser himself and it’s the group’s first oceanic themed wristwatch, however its restricted water opposition (50m) implies it shouldn’t be treated as sporting plunging gear. The Aquapod’s concentric case, explained drags, and iridescent subtleties are roused by the jellyfish, a creature which MB&F has turned horological by imagining another, vertically-mounted development equipped for transfering energy from the limb formed twisting rotor at the base to the flying tourbillon controller at the top. The hours and minutes are shown on lightweights plates – in aluminum and titanium – that are mounted on earthenware metal rollers around the fringe of the development. They pivot, aligning the current time with the vertical marker at the front of the showcase. MB&F is ensuring 72 hours of force save for this programmed development as well.
Here you can see exactly how three-dimensional the HM7 motor is.
The MB&F HM7 will be restricted to two models. The company has declared that 33 pieces will be conveyed in evaluation 5 titanium, estimated at 98,000 CHF (roughly $97,150 at season of distributing), and that 66 pieces will be made in 18l red gold, valued at 118,000 CHF (around $116,950). The two models come on a high-grade elastic lash with a collapsing clasp that coordinates the case.
In red gold, the HM7 offers huge loads of differentiation and a warm glow.
