Maximilian Busser and Friends, aka MB&F, recently unveiled its newest new watch design, the HM9 Flow.
Available for $182,000, the Swiss watch marque’s unique new timepiece features a characteristically unconventional and remarkable design. Even though this certainly isn’t the first time a luxury timepiece has taken inspiration from the romance of historical autos and aircraft, the HM9 manages to evoke design cues from both, and present a uniquely inventive design of its own in the bargain.
The release follows an exhaustive three-year development period, which is also characteristic of MB&F; the company takes its time, if you’ll pardon the debatably humorous wordplay. The watch suggests ’40s- and ’50s-era automobile and airplane shapes; it is broken into a series of functional components that resemble an instrument cluster.
MB&F’s Road Edition features a rose-gold body and a special speedometer-inspired dial. Meanwhile, the Air edition offers a darker take and boasts an aviation-inspired dial. Both styles come paired with a classic hand-stitched brown leather strap.
Each edition is limited to just 33 examples.
