MB and F HM4 Watch - Childlike Liberation of Spirit

Jul 20, 2011
The Swiss horological company MB&F in cooperation with Chinese artist Huang Hankang have launched their new unique HM4 watch, developed intentionally for the Only Watch 2011.

The new MB&F watch captures immediate attention with a figurine of a detachable 18k white gold panda bear, holding gold reins. A childlike liberation of the spirit, the bear is placed atop the grade 5 titanium case with the dimensions of 54mm wide x 52mm long x 24mm. The case is composed of 65 individual parts.

The model is equipped with separate crowns for time setting and winding. The case architecture incorporates 5 sapphire crystals - 2 for the dials, 2 for the top and bottom and 1 for the central case section.

Inside the new MB&F HM4 watch is hidden a three-dimensional hand-wound movement, produced entirely in the brands workshops. It comprises 311 components, including 50 jewels.

The mechanism operates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour. It also incorporates two mainspring barrels, which work in parallel to deliver a 72-hour power reserve.

The caliber breathes life into the functions of hours and minutes, presented on the right dial. The left dial, meanwhile, reveals the power reserve indicator.

The new MB&F watch is teamed with a black hand-stitched calfskin strap. It joins to a titanium/white gold customized deployment buckle attached to articulated lugs.

The model is accompanied by an original watercolor, painted by Huang Hankang.
