MB&F Creates a New Watch with a Case Made from Sapphire Crystal
The MB&F Horological Machine No. 9
Look at any watch, and you will see that the watch’s internal workings are not visible. This is and has been the trend for years. But now, MB&F has decided to initiate a new trend by showing off the internal workings of a watch by using a crystal case that is entirely made of Sapphire Crystal. The watch is called Horological Machine No. 9 and displays the internal movement and makes people’s gaze stick to it.
The watch’s unique work of art could have been enough to attract buyers but the founder of MB&F, Maximilian Busser, wanted the movement to be highlighted. For that, the company created a form that comprises three sections that are meticulously fitted together.
Each piece of this extraordinary watch by MB&F is held together by a metal framework that is either in red or white gold. In addition to that framework, people can also see a three-dimensional rubber gasket which plays a key role in offering 30-metre water resistance. The sapphire crystal of the MB&F watch is exceptionally hard and resists scratches and shatter spectacularly.
The movement is based on MB&F’s LM2, but this new version has two balances, each of which is located on the side pods. Thanks to these balances, the average reading is excellent. This unique MB&F watch comes with 45 hours of power reserve and had two different colorways. Two of them are 18K red gold with a PVD coated blue engine or NAC coated black engine. The other two are 18K white gold with either a PCD coated red gold or a purple engine. The company plans to produce only five examples of each option, so the total number of pieces is 20.
The MB&F watch also has 52 jewels and will cost AUD 567,207 (About USD 440,000). It is available at select retail partners of the brand and e-shop of the brand. The perfect candidates for this watch are the super-rich, especially those who made it to the list of top 1% earners worldwide that was shared recently.
