Horological Machine N°10 ‘Bulldog showcases the best of MB&F’s technical expertise built up over the years. MB&F fans and collectors will recognise immediately the elements that hew closely to the horological lab’s best-loved creations. The large suspended balance that hovers just beneath the central dome of sapphire crystal was made possible by the various iterations of this mechanism in the Legacy Machine collection, Even the grillework design motif in the “ribs” set beneath the balance and in the tail-end of the body echoes the automotive-inspired HM8, HMX and HM5.
Watchbazar loves the unique power reserve indicator which has been very carefully designed to consume least energy possible and gives out very decent 45 hours of mainspring energy. A fully closed mouth tells you that “Bulldog” is wound down and ready for a nap. If you can clearly see the rows of shining teeth lining the jaws, get ready, because that means the “Bulldog” is all charged up and full of fight.
The manual-winding movement is made up of 301 components including the bespoke flying 14mm balance wheel with four traditional regulating screws which float above the doomed dials. The large sized Bulldog measuring 45mm across,54mm from nose to tail is surprisingly wearable and fits great on the wrist.
MB&F Horological Machine N°10 ‘Bulldog’ is available in two launch editions: grade 5 titanium body with blue “eyes”, and 18k red-gold and titanium body with black “eyes”.
