Space odd­ity

DA MAN - Caliber - - ESSENTIALS -

This is not a watch, some would say. Maybe, it’s a work of art, but it does tell the time. More im­por­tantly, it’s a very beau­ti­ful work of art. Fol­low­ing last year’s launch of the HM6 (“HM”stands for Horo­log­i­cal Ma­chines), Max­i­m­il­ian Büsser and his friends—which ac­tu­ally make up the name MB&F—reinvented the piece nick­named “Space Pi­rate” in sap­phire crys­tal. The HM6 SV (“SV” stands for Sap­phire Vi­sion) is an ab­so­lute talk­ing piece, what with the hor­i­zon­tally piv­ot­ing hours and min­utes at the front and a fly­ing tour­bil­lon at the cen­ter. Since a tour­bil­lon is quite sen­si­tive to changes in the move­ment’s lubri­cant, there is a re­tractable, semi­spher­i­cal shield from ti­ta­nium that can be ac­ti­vated through the crown at 9 o’clock. Either red gold or plat­inum wraps the sides of the case, and each model is lim­ited to 10 units only.
