WatchTime Ny 2016: On the job Using the New MB&F Horological Machine No. watches 8 "Can-Am"sharetweetshareMB&F announced their eighth "Horological Machine," the HM8 "Can-Am" way back in September. Earlier this week, U.S. poljot watches watch aficionados increasingly becoming their first peek at the highly unusual timepiece at its "coming out party" at WatchTime Ny, where we had the opportunity snap some up-close photos of their white-gold and rose-gold versions.The HM8 incorporates several aspects from previous Horological Machine pieces, namely the angular forms and optical prism displays from the HM5 (which took design cues through the 1970s Amida watch) and also the now-familiar blued-gold "battle-axe" winding rotor that debuted on the HM3. (Thus, not entirely by coincidence, HM5 + HM3 = HM8.) Other notable visual elements are directly inspired by vehicles that raced within the legendary Canadian-American Challenge Cup (Can-Am), a discontinued "anything goes" auto racing series that might have turned 50 in 2010.The curvy yet angular case features dual optical prisms displaying enough time by means of bidirectional jumping hours and trailing minutes, combined with the battle-axe rotor affixed to top (within a sapphire crystal "engine cover"), here in the middle of two Can-Am-inspired "roll bars," milled from solid blocks of grade 5 titanium and polished to some mirror shine, which sweep with the front and taper to the back. Turning the watch to its back side reveals another distinctly automotive-inspired feature: dual "oil sumps" similar to those situated on the underside of any car engine.MB&F founder Maximillian Busser whose original vocation would be to become an automobile designer calls the HM8 "one in the coolest pieces That i've ever created."The Girard-Perregaux base movement, having an MB&F in-house-developed jumping hours-and-minutes module, is inverted to put the rotor on the top and modified they are driving the prism indicators. The overlapping hours and minutes disks, which rotate horizontally on the movement and so are visible inside corners, are coated with Super-LumiNova for low-light legibility of the numerals. The prisms are constructed of sapphire, a fabric notoriously difficult to use at such small, precise parameters. The forward, vertical-facing time display helps to make the HM8, appropriately, a great "drivers' watch."The case alone includes at the very least 60 parts and measures a large 49 mm x 51.5 mm in diameter and 19 mm thick. The movement features 274 components, tissot prc200 including 30 jewels, and stores a completely wound power reserve of 42 hours. Its variety of haute horlogerie finishes is usually glimpsed from the rotor in the top side.The MB&F HM8 "Can-Am" is launching by 50 percent versions, in 18k white gold or platinum and titanium, with marine-blue alligator strap, as well as in 18k rose gold and titanium with dark brown alligator strap. Both versions retail for $82,000.sharetweetshare replica breitling wingwalkers watches
