THE IN­STRU­MENT:

24-7 (Singapore) - - M For .... Music Makers -

MB&F’s Mu­sic Ma­chine. This is not a watch but rather a mod­ern mu­sic box cre­ated in col­lab­o­ra­tion with high-end mu­sic-box man­u­fac­turer Reuge. Known for its off-kil­ter time­pieces, MB& F has au­da­ciously pre­miered this mu­sic player in place of a watch, which it says em­bod­ies the same spirit of me­chan­i­cal in­no­va­tion and crafts­man­ship as horo­log­i­cal com­pli­ca­tions. The air­plane-shaped ma­chine sports twin sil­ver cylin­ders, pow­ered by in­de­pen­dent move­ments. Each cylin­der is fes­tooned with pins that play three melodies, aided by a ver­ti­cal comb with in­di­vid­ual hand-tuned teeth to sound each note.
