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.
Each version is interpreted in a grade 5 titanium case, composed of 65 elements. Its measurements are 54mm x 52mm x 24mm: width, length and height indicated respectively. The case is assembled with 5 sapphire crystals: 2 for dials, 1 for central case section and 2 for top and bottom display panels. The case is equipped with separate crowns for time setting and winding.
Both the new MB&F HM4 Razzle Dazzle and HM4 Double Trouble watches are complimented by two dials. The right dial takes care of hours and minutes. The left display reveals a power reserve indicator.
Giving life to the functions is a three-dimensional horological engine, developed from A to Z in the brand’s workshops. It comprises 311 individual parts, including 50 jewels. The movement operates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour and allows for à 72-hour power reserve.
The new MB&F watches are coupled with authentic vintage leather straps, produced from Swiss military bags. Adorned with hand-made white stitching, each item joins to a titanium/white gold custom designed deployment buckle.
