Launch of Horo­log­i­cal Ma­chine No.7 in Sin­ga­pore

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - SCENE -

On 2 March 2017, Max­i­m­il­ian Busser, founder of MB&F un­veiled the lat­est edi­tion of the Horo­log­i­cal Ma­chines; the HM7 Aqua­pod. The event was hosted in newly opened Ware­house Ho­tel where dis­tin­guished guests from The Hour Glass were treated to a de­light­ful even­ing. This was shortly af­ter the world re­lease in Jan­uary 2017, at the Sa­lon In­ter­na­tional De La Haute Hor­logerie Gen­eve (SIHH).

De­spite push­ing bound­aries in pre­vi­ous edi­tions, such as blast­ing into outer space (HM2, HM3, HM6), launch­ing into the sky (HM4) and pow­er­ing down the road (HM5, HMX, HM8), the lat­est col­lec­tion fi­nally plunges into the wa­ter with Horo­log­i­cal Ma­chine No. 7, aka HM7 Aqua­pod.

The time­piece mim­ics a horo­log­i­cal jel­ly­fish, and the ar­chi­tec­ture of its en­gine is ap­pro­pri­ately biomor­phic. Jel­ly­fish are ra­di­ally sym­met­ric and so is the ex­quis­ite watch. Also, sim­i­lar to where a jel­ly­fish gen­er­ates power from food caught in its ten­ta­cles, the HM7 pow­ers up from its ten­ta­cle-like au­to­matic wind­ing ro­tor. It also glows in the dark, both ex­pect­edly and un­ex­pect­edly. Not only do the hour and minute nu­mer­als glow, the in­side of the move­ment also lights up like a fly­ing tour­bil­lion at night, along its ten­ta­cle-like wind­ing ro­tor.

HM7 Aqua­pod is a col­lectible with a lim­ited num­ber of 33 pieces in grade 5 ti­ta­nium with blue bezel and 66 pieces in 18K 5N+ red gold with black bezel, world­wide. The Hour Glass is proud to be the ex­clu­sive dis­trib­u­tor of MB&F in Sin­ga­pore.
