Horological Machine N°7 Aquapod

MB&F 2017

Men's

Horological Machine No7 Aquapod square

 

 

After pushing the boundaries of horological mechanics

by blasting into space, launching through the sky and powering down the road,

MB&F plunges into water with the HM7 Aquapod, which despite its name isn't

a dive watch. Max Büsser based this watch's organic design on the jellyfish… an

organic aesthetic that is counterbalanced by the mechanics inside, namely a

central flying tourbillon that dominates the concentric vertical movement

architecture. Indications radiate out like waves on the ocean, on two spherical

rings in aluminium and titanium, mounted on ceramic bearings. And like a

jellyfish can glow in the dark, the Aquapod lights up not just the hour and

minute numerals, but the tourbillon and the tentacles of the winding rotor that

can be seen functioning in the night. The Aquapod comes in grade 5 titanium

with blue bezel (33 pieces) or in 5N pink gold with black bezel (66 pieces).
