ABOUT MB&F MOONMACHINE 2 WATCHES

MoonMachine 2 is the second collaboration between MB&F and Stepan Sarpaneva: a horological creation that occupies the same elusive space as moonlight, somewhere between illusion and reality. MoonMachine 2 brings us the world’s first projected moonphase display.

MoonMachine 2 comes housed in the case of Horological Machine Nº8. The stripped-down case construction of HM8 emphasised the illusory nature of the projected hours and minutes, and MoonMachine 2 uses the same mechanism to highlight the visual impact of a moon disc.

The projection is accomplished via an optical prism, which refracts vertically the hours, minutes and moon discs. A pusher on the side alows quick and easy adjustment of the moonphase display.

The battleaxe rotor of HM8 has been transformed into an openworked radial web of titanium with Sarpaneva’s signature golden moon, and the sapphire crystal pane has been metallised in a similar pattern.

 

ABOUT MB&F

At MB&F they turned traditional watchmaking of the highest craftsmanship into futuristic, fiercely unconventional timekeeping machines. These sculptured, three-dimensional cases and beautifully-finished engines are called ‘Machines’.

After decades conforming to the rules of corporate watchmaking, Maximilian Büsser broke the chains and started a rebellion in 2005; a rebellion called MB&F – Maximilian Büsser & Friends.

MB&F is an artistic concept laboratory based around a simple idea: to assemble collectives of independent watchmaking professionals to develop radical watches – Horological or Legacy Machines. By nurturing teams of talented individuals, harnessing their passion and creativity and crediting each person’s essential role, MB&F uses their synergy to become much greater than the sum of its parts. Respecting tradition, but never constrained by it, they reinterpret traditional, high-quality watchmaking into three-dimensional kinetic sculptures.

These rare, limited edition pieces are now at Gold Mountain Gallery, inquire about availability.
