— One of the most interesting collaborations we saw in Geneva was between MB&F and Sarpaneva. MB&F is one of the world’s foremost producers of avant-garde timepieces and Sarpaneva is run by Stepan Sarpaneva, a Finnish watchmaker with a passion for moon-phase displays. is is the second lunar-focused collaboration between the two independent brands, joining the original Moonmachine from 2012. What makes the Moonmachine 2 unique is that rather than a traditional engraved moon-phase indicator, it has the world’s first projected moon-phase display. is projection is made possible through an optical prism, which refracts the hours, minutes and moon disks in their flat positions so they appear perpendicular to the engine. ere are three total moons throughout the timepiece, two mounted on the moon disk, cycling between the jump hour and running minutes indicator. e third (larger) Sarpaneva moon is set on the winding rotor. e moons are made of gold, finished by hand and are some of the smallest moons that Sarpaneva has ever worked on. e Moonmachine 2 is available in three limited editions of 12 timepieces each, one in full titanium with white-gold moons and a light blue sky, one in blackened titanium with white-gold moons and a dark blue sky, and one in rose gold and titanium with rose-gold moons and an anthracite sky. Prices are CHF 88,000 for the titanium models and CHF 95,000 for the rose-gold version.
