It’s been three productive years in the making, but, MB&F has finally done it, announcing their latest addition to the family, the HM4 (Horological Machine 4). A concept which started with the deep rooted childhood passion of watchmaker Maxmilian Büsser: building model aircrafts. The independent company has now expanded their collection to include a US aircraft, the A-10 Thunderbolt. Except this aircraft won’t take off into the sky, this one will stay comfortably on a wrist, doing its job- to tell the time. MB&F is a company who has received much praise for their radical timepiece designs, with HM4 being the lovechild of fine horological kinetic art and aerodynamics. The two indicators of the watch resemble the jet engines of the plane, one for the hours and minutes, the other acts as the fuel tank power reserve. Sheltering the timepiece’s engine is MB&F’s mastered Sapphire casing, with a bridge of titanium. Each of the mechanisms designed for this watch, down to the very screw, is beyond precision. And that is the very passion required for these keepsakes.
