MB&F Horological Machine No.2 Cover  2 Comments


On Sunday 18th November, the Hour Glass hosted a small dinner party at a Japanese restraurant with Max Busser and his MB&F No.2 as the guest of honour. I was kindly invited to photograph this monumental piece, the second from this new brand and already it has brought some acclaim with collectors from all over.

Max has again kindly agreed to model his watch for me and the image here is shared with great satisfaction. The MB&F No.2 is what I call a "simple complications" - a tautology of course but for me it accurately describes the retrograde minute movement with double moons. While each of the function it features do not rate as a high complication, altogether - in its form cannot be described as a simple watch. While it follows on from the toubillon of the No.1, this watch does not pale in comparison to its elder sibling. It features well on the wrist, comfortable but only for those who are able to deal with the attention it brings.

More to come in days ahead when I am able to complete the post processing of the images. So come back soon.
