MB and F (Max Büsser and friends) is presenting its latest coup de foudre: the Horological Machine No.5 is the epitome of the 70’s.
The face of this masterpiece looks a bit like the backwindow of some sportscars in the 1970s. It reminds you of Lamborghini and other fast cars back then, maybe even the DeLorean.
While you can see the heritage, this is a timepiece resulting from a mix of the past combined with tradition and future and put into another masterpiece created by Max Büsser and his friends.
To cite the press release from MB and F:
(There was) a time (in the 1970s) when everything seemed possible: space exploration, supersonic flight, hovercrafts, jet packs and the first supercars like the Lamborghini Miura… In the watchmaking world, quartz movements and LED displays prepared to wipe out traditional mechanical movements. And if you asked someone back then, what timepieces would look like in the year 2012, the answer was certainly not “round, white dials, with hour, minute and second hands” – like most watches still are today.
