Horological Machine N°8 Can-Am

MB&F 2017

Men's

Horological Machine No8 Can-Am square

 

 

Over recent years, MB&F's Horological Machines have

memorably experimented with two architectural forms: the angular shape and

prism display of the 1970s Amida watch, and the battle-axe winding rotor that

is often centre-stage. This Horological Machine N° 8 combines the two in a

design inspired by the turbo-charged racing cars that competed in the

Canadian-American Challenge Cup (Can-Am) between 1966 and 1987. Dual optical

prisms vertically display bidirectional jumping hours and trailing minutes,

while the signature battle-axe rotor sits on top. A key feature of this design

are the polished "roll bars", borrowed from Can-Am cars, that sweep

from the front to the tapered back. MB&F proposes two versions of its

latest Machine, in white gold and titanium or pink gold and titanium.
