If its big it better be good…. that what the team at MB&f have been doing since 2007. After creating some spectaluar timepieces. Right from outer space inspired (HM2, HM3, HM6), launching into the sky (HM4), and powering down the road and around the track (HM5, HMX, HM8).This time MB&F takes a deep dive into the water with HM7 Aquapod.
Jellyfish inspired design of HM7 Aquapod is counter balanced by the very mechanical horology within: a central 60-second flying tourbillon tops the concentric vertical movement architecture, with indications radiating out from the center like ripples in a pond. Like many jellyfish, HM7 glows in the dark: on the hour and minute numerals, around the inside of the movement and along the tentacle-like winding rotor @ 53.8mm across and 21.3mm high its a delight to wear it on your wrist.
The 303-component, 72-hour power reserve HM7 Engine was developed in-house by MB&F. The movement beats at a frequency of 18,000 vph Spherically three-dimensional, all its mechanisms from the winding rotor at the bottom, past the mainspring barrel and hour and minute displays, to the flying tourbillon on top rotate concentrically around the center.
The aircraft-grade rubber strap in matte finish and glossy edges and equipped with a double folding buckle matching the case material completes the watch.
