24-7 (Singapore) - - L'atelier By The Hour Glass -

The world of haute horol­ogy can be se­ri­ous and in­tim­i­dat­ing, which is why it is re­fresh­ing to see a brand like MB&F put the fun back into the busi­ness, with its in­no­va­tive and play­ful ap­proach to watch­mak­ing, em­bod­ied in its cre­ations, or “ma­chines”.

The Frog range is par­tic­u­larly delightful with its tongue-in- cheek de­sign com­bined with state- of-the-art tech­nol­ogy. The stand­out HM3 Poi­son Dart Frog is a limited edi­tion of 10 pieces in­spired by the spec­tac­u­lar yel­low-banded poi­son dart frog.

Just as the pro­trud­ing eyes of frogs en­able them to see in many di­rec­tions, the bul­bous hour and minute domes of the Poi­son Dart Frog watch al­low the wearer to eas­ily read the time from a va­ri­ety of an­gles with­out hav­ing to turn his or her wrist.

While this seems like a fun ef­fect, it re­quires pre­ci­sion en­gi­neer­ing to en­sure that the two semi-spher­i­cal sap­phire- crys­tal domes are shaped and pol­ished to perfection as the slight­est fl aw in the sap­phire could pro­duce a dis­con­cert­ing mag­ni­fy­ing ef­fect.

The watch also has a sleek black PVD- coated zir­co­nium case, 22K yel­low gold ro­tor and 18K yel­low gold screws, and is avail­able ex­clu­sively at The Hour Glass.
