MB&F

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - TIMEPIECES -

Max­i­m­il­ian Büsser & Friends (MB&F) is an artis­tic con­cept lab­o­ra­tory based around an idea to as­sem­ble col­lec­tives of in­de­pen­dent watch­mak­ers to de­velop rad­i­cal horo­log­i­cal mas­ter­pieces. Since 2005, these time­pieces have been tak­ing the world by storm with its in­no­va­tive re­bel­lion wrist­watches that are any­thing but or­di­nary. Af­ter push­ing the bound­aries by blast­ing into outer space, launch­ing into the sky, pow­er­ing down the road and around the track, MB&F has ded­i­cated 2017 to the wa­ter with Horo­log­i­cal Ma­chine N°7 (HM7 Aqua­pod). At first look, the time­piece may re­sem­ble a jel­ly­fish with a very me­chan­i­cal horol­ogy within – a cen­tral flying tour­bil­lion tops the con­cen­tric ver­ti­cal move­ment ar­chi­tec­ture, with in­di­ca­tions ra­di­at­ing out from the cen­tre like rip­ples in a pond. Sim­i­lar to jel­ly­fishes, the Aqua­pod is ra­di­ally sym­met­ri­cal and gen­er­ates its power from ten­ta­cle-like au­to­matic wind­ing ro­tor, along with an im­pos­ing flying tour­bil­lion reg­u­lat­ing the power gen­er­ated by the ro­tor, trans­form­ing it into the dis­play of time. HM7 can also be ap­pre­ci­ated in the dark.
