PORT­FO­LIO MB& F presents the world’s first pro­jected moon phase dis­play in Moon­ma­chine 2.

MB& F has in­tro­duced an­other world first with Moon­ma­chine 2, its sec­ond col­lab­o­ra­tion with Fin­nish in­de­pen­dent watch­maker Stepan Sarpaneva. Moon­ma­chine 2 bor­rows de­sign el­e­ments from HM8, such as the side- on jump­ing hour and run­ning min­utes dis­plays. These are achieved us­ing a prism to re­fract an im­age of the num­bered hour and minute discs to their ap­par­ent per­pen­dic­u­lar ori­en­ta­tion.

Moon­ma­chine 2 has gone a step fur­ther with the ad­di­tion of a moon phase dis­play between the hour and minute win­dows. This makes it the first time­piece with a pro­jected moon phase dis­play. The two small moons on the ro­tat­ing disc are just 4.5mm in di­am­e­ter and at their thinnest are a mere 0.07mm thick. Need­less to say, this ren­ders them ex­tremely del­i­cate and re­mark­ably chal­leng­ing to work by hand.

Moon­ma­chine 2 comes in two op­tions of ti­ta­nium case — one in sil­ver, one dark­ened — with a rose gold case of­fered as a third op­tion. Each vari­a­tion is lim­ited to 12 pieces. www.mbandf.com ≠
