HOROLOGICAL MACHINE MB&F 8 CAN-AM: racing time

What comes to your mind when you think of watches?

Time? Practical? Elegant? Simple things you can see at first glance.

But what if we introduced to you this new model of Swiss watchmaker MB&F?

It’s called HM8 because it was inspired by the Can-Am racing (which started 5 years ago). Many watches reveal their charms easily in photographs but HM8 is not one of them. In a world full of round watches competing for attention with variations large and small, the HM8 is in a class of its own.

Why you might ask? Because its both sumptuously curvy yet somehow just as angular. This remarkable piece is certainly a must see. By looking at these pictures you can have the feeling of the motion of the rotor and the feeling of connection to this timepiece. The designer of this watch – Busser wanted to be a car designer but he grew up being a watchmaker instead who express his passions now in his professional work.

Now here some details that makes this watch even more irresistible:

Dimensions: 49 x 51.5 x 19mm

Functions: Bi-directional jumping hours, trailing minutes (these are displayed via dual reflective sapphire crystal prisms and integrated magnifying lens)

Power Reserve: 42 hours

Movement: Automatic Sowind gear train with in-house jumping hour and trailing minutes module

Material: 18k white gold and titanium; 18k red gold and titanium

Water Resistance: 30 meters

Strap: Hand-stitched alligator strap in marine blue (white gold case) and dark brown (red gold case), folding buckle in matching material.
