MB&F’S BALT­HAZAR

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style -

A steely horo­log­i­cal cy­borg with a dual per­son­al­ity, Balt­hazar is the third and lat­est of MB&F’S ro­botic of­fer­ings. With more than 600 parts, Balt­hazar is an im­pos­ing 40 cen­time­tres tall and weighs 8 kilo­grams. Its chest dis­plays jump­ing hours and sweep­ing min­utes via two discs, its belly shows a power re­serve in­di­ca­tor, and its eyes are 20-sec­ond ret­ro­grade dis­plays. Ro­tate the torso 180 de­grees and the omi­nous side of Balt­hazar is re­vealed—a hair-rais­ing skull with men­ac­ing teeth and deep-set eyes, and a chest that presents a dual hemi­sphere moon phase. On Balt­hazar’s hand is a shield, which is the key for wind­ing the main­spring and set­ting the time.
