MB&F stands for Max Büsser and friends, and these friends are collaborating on new watchprojects far away from the usual. They instead create watches and clocks which are extraordinary, they are realizing ideas noone else has thought of and come up with designs and executions, you will not see anywhere else.
Now, MB&F is presenting another collaboration for the first time, they are creating watches together with Moser & Cie. from Schaffhausen which is based in the German speaking part of Switzerland. Moser is known for unconventional ideas and sometimes provoking statements. So this can only be a great collaboration. And in fact, it is.
This new collaboration with fellow independent brand H. Moser & Cie. works two ways, generating not just one but two new collections: our MB&F LM101 has been “Moserized”, and H. Moser’s Endeavour has received an injection of MB&F genes.
The two collections are revealed today, but the relationship with H. Moser & Cie. is much older. At the head of our companies, Max Büsser and Edouard Meylan are good friends; and Precision Engineering, a sister company of H. Moser, has been supplying us with hairsprings for almost 10 years. That essential component sits at the heart of the two new collections: H. Moser’s beautiful double hairspring beats for the first time in an MB&F; and for the first time in an H. Moser, the remarkable cylindrical hairspring we featured in our LM Thunderdome.
Next to those hairsprings, the famous fumé dials that have become a signature of H. Moser & Cie. The LM101 MB&F x H. Moser features 4 beautiful fumé dials: Funky Blue, Red, Cosmic Green and – exclusively for our retail partners in Dubai, Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons – an Aqua Blue edition. Each limited to just 15 pieces.
Simultaneously, our friends at H. Moser launch today the Endeavour Cylindrical Tourbillon H. Moser x MB&F. Under an impressive sapphire crystal dome, the cylindrical hairspring regulates a towering tourbillon, while the tilted dial is taken from our LM FlyingT and LM Thunderdome – a very 3-dimensional structure typical of MB&F.
