The acclaimed horological company MB&F
, which celebrates the art of machine, has joined forces with the house of Boucheron
to turn its Horological Machine No3
into a jewellery model. The exciting collaboration resulted in an incredible JwlryMachine watch
The companies’ latest release has been created in the shape of a three-dimensional gem-set owl
. The new MB&F watch is dressed in an 18k white gold case
, which sparkles with amethyst, diamonds as well as blue and violet sapphires.
Alternatively, the horological machine is proposed with an 18k red gold case
, illuminated by the play of pink tourmaline, rose quartz, diamonds and pink sapphires. The case of each version proudly reveals a screwed-down crown, paved with cabochon amethyst or cabochon rubellite.
The watchmaking house MB&F is proud to announce its innovative Horological Machine No2-SV
, with ‘SV’ standing for Sapphire Vision. The watch employs a crystal-clear sapphire case
with a back manufactured from titanium.
The distinctive flair of the HM2-SV case
is represented by its absolute transparency
. It is the feature which enables the watch owner to admire the intricate working of the movement. The watch movement
comprises 349 individual parts and demonstrates a remarkable finish, meticulously performed by hand. The movement animates the indications on the watch’s signature twin dials.
The whole top half of the watch case is sculptured in sapphire
. Inferior only to diamond in terms of its hardness, this material makes scratches virtually non-existent.
demonstrates obvious advantages: it is extremely resistant to high temperatures, has zero porosity and its interaction with acids is possible only if the temperature exceeds 300 Degrees Celsius. read more
Horological Machine No.2
(HM2 in short) has been conceived and engineered as a three-dimensional machine to provide timekeeping and be worn on the wrist. The functions and indications of the timepiece were conceived to tailor to the strengths of Jean-Marc Wiederrecht
who acted as HM2's chief watchmaker.
Horological Machine No.2
makes one feel dynamic tension between its matte textures and mirror-polishes, precious metals and high-tech alloys, as well as traditional watchmaking and 21st-century micro-engineering. read more
To celebrate the 10th anniversary
of The PuristS
created the HM3 Chocolate Frog
. The amazing timepiece, limited to just 10 pieces
, is available exclusively via www.PuristSPro.com. Belonging to the high-end watchmaking, the HM3 Chocolate Frog immediately makes one feel its playful spirit.
With help of its protruding eyes, the frog can see in different directions, without turning its head. The Horological Machine No3 Chocolate Frog
boasts bulbous domes that make the time legibly seen from different angles, without turning one’s wrist. While HM3 has the hour and minute hands rotating around their respective stationary cones, the Frog features the aluminum domes rotating under the sapphire crystals.
While creating the rotating domes
, the creators of the Frog met a number of technical challenges. They chose solid aluminum characterized by optimal strength to weight ratio for producing the hour and minute domes. The weight of the domes is about 0.5g.
Singaporean based photographer Dominic Khoo started a world first investment-structure. After a decade of collecting and studying watches, the enthusiast decided that “It's About Time” to launch The Watch Fund.
What is new about the idea? Investors can actually wear top-level watches and sell them later for a profit, gaining access to extreme limited editions and enjoying high price advantages. Khoo's fund even offers provenance pieces, worn by royalty and historical figures.
Since its foundation in February 2013, The Watch Fund has become a serious player in the international investment scene. According to the fund's website, the total AUM currently stands at USD\$16,000,000.
Investors can expect a minimum return of 20% at the end of three years daily wear: “With the price of skilled labour only going to go up in the watch industry – top-level watches will become rarer and more expensive”, says certified watch expert Khoo.
Dominic Khoo is a veteran in the watch industry, having trained with the world's biggest watch auction house Antiquorum and worked in brand management for Girard-Perregaux. Additionally, he recently started up the watch auction arm for Spink (previously owned by Christie's), the world's oldest auction house.

Horological Machine No3 Frog
created by MB&F
brings a sense of playfulness into the field of high-end watchmaking.
The new Horological Machine, as hinted by its name, has been inspired by the protruding eyes of a frog. The HM3 Frog catches the eye by its bulbous domes designed so that the time is easily read from a lot of angles with no need to turn the wrist.
While HM3 has the hour and minute hands rotating around their respective stationary cones, the Frog has aluminum domes rotating under the sapphire crystals.
The rotating domes
represented a true technical challenge for MB&F team. For the hour and minute domes the creators of the Frog used solid aluminum as this material provided optimal strength to weight ratio. The weight of domes is just slightly over 0.5g. For remarkably reduced energy needs, the domes are milled from the outside and then from the inside to come up with a paper-thin wall thickness of 0.28 mm. read more

The Swiss horological company MB&F (Maximilian Busser & Friends)
is delighted to unveil its new Horological Machine Number 4
, executed in two versions - HM4 Razzle Dazzle
and HM4 Double Trouble
The originality of the novelties is represented by pin-up images
, which portray beautiful women in a colorful style. A part of American culture from the middle of the last century, the pin-up art generated the “nose art”
during the World War II. The latter involves an application of pin-up images on the nose cones of military aircraft.
This very idea is reflected on the side surfaces of the new MB&F watches. The pictures on the new HM4 Razzle Dazzle
and HM4 Double Trouble watches
are different and this is the only thing that sets two creations apart. The images are hand-applied by the Geneva artist Isabelle Villa
