MoonMachine 2

MB&F 2018

Men's

Inspired by the HM8, the first MB&F watch to have both the battle-axe rotor and the heads-up time display, this surprising MoonMachine 2 is a collaboration between Maximilian Büsser and the Finnish independent watchmaker Stepan Sarpaneva. Made as three limited editions of 12 (full titanium with white gold moon, black titanium with white gold moon, red gold and titanium with red gold moon), this miniature machine possesses the world's first projected moonphase display. The projection is via an optical prism which refracts the hours, minutes and moon discs in their flat positions to appear as though perpendicular to the engine. The prism is cut to magnify the hours and minutes by 20% for better readability.
