Max Busser of MB&F
(that "MB") knows what it takes to keep the novelty segment of the luxury watch market interested. MB&F essentially has only three different watches, yet the brand has reached an almost legendary status given the anticipation around each newly released version of his horological machines. While MB&F has already released their third watch, this is a modified version of their second major release, the Horological Machine N0. 2.
The difference here is the use of ceramic materials to make up the front plate of the watch case. Two metals are offered in a limited edition of 99 models total. 33 in rose gold with black matte finished ceramic and titanium, while 66 models will be offered with an all titanium and ceramic case. However, the MB&F signature rotor is rose gold on both models, and visible through the sapphire caseback window.
Functions are displayed through two dials, with a jumping hour time display on the right, and a moon phase with a retrograde date display on the left. If you are curious about the size of this massive wear, you are looking at placing 58mm x 38mm on your wrist - but it should sit on your arm more comfortably than you'd expect. With an impressive list of designers and micro engineers on board, Max Busser and Friends (MB&F) is a brand perched near the top of the modern luxury watch maker list. Prices will be about $100,000.
