MB& F launches limited version HM9-SV watch series
The daring Haute Clocks brand has become a favorite associated with enthusiasts due to its relatively younger history, whether it is because of its out-of-the-box movement design or the continuous efforts to obscure the line between watchmaking as well as modern sculpture. In recent years, among the brand's most extreme samples of this concept is Horological Device No . 9 " Flow", or HM9. Designed to stimulate the fashionable Streamline Moderne form of the 1930s and also 1940s, the aerodynamic " triple teardrop" form of HM9 also includes MB& F creator Maximilian Büsser, which should certainly be the brand's most beautiful motion so far. To celebrate this complicated design work, MB& Farrenheit returns to HM9 with an all new interpretation, aiming to directly concentrate on this movement. The new restricted edition MB& F Horological Machine No . 9 Sky-blue Vision, or MB& F HM9-SV, reimagines one of the brand’s most fashionable styles with a stunning complex sapphire case.
The 57 milimetre x 47 mm by 23 mm case from the limited edition MB& N HM9-SV may be one of the most driven sapphire cases ever. You will find five anti-reflective sapphires, every with a unique shape. Both largest parts, covering the best and bottom parts of the primary case, are extremely complex types. In addition to their unusual curves, they also have three different teardrop-shaped domes. A connected cylindrical part matches this primary case to a side-mounted switch, which has a top crystal along with a sapphire crystal dial surface area.
The brand claims which processing and polishing some crystals for each HM9-SV needs 350 hours of guide work, excluding installation in to the overall structure itself. Placing all these parts together is definitely an 18K white gold or red-colored gold skeleton frame which allows almost uninterrupted observation in the internal movement, but provides some sculptural touch towards the design. Switching to a sky-blue case shows in the image that the ratio of the case is actually slightly changed compared to the initial HM9, and it is slightly bulbous and organic than it is predecessor.
The actual dial of the MB& S HM9-SV is located on the six o'clock side of the case, adopting the pilot-inspired example of the original HM9 Flow Air. Equipped with eye catching printed Arabic numerals along with hollow Roman sword-shaped fingers, the dial surface is made from sapphire crystal to ensure clear view of the gear teach below.
MB& F offers four internal HM9 handbook winding movements with different surface finishes inside the HM9-SV. The splints and splints of the reddish gold case model tend to be NAC coated black or even PVD coated blue, as the platinum model uses PVD coated purple or 18 CARAT rose gold-plated. The addition of colours, especially the vibrant gem stone shades of blue and magenta variants, greatly increases the otherworldly effect of the design.
Interestingly, although the HM9 movement is equipped with a pair of stability wheels, and each pontoon to both the sides of the main canister has a balance wheel, MB& F deliberately avoids resonance effects. Instead, the movements uses a planetary differential program to balance and mix the speed of the two. A far more complicated issue is the solitary main barrel, which splits the power between the two equilibrium wheels before the output will be recombined and sent to the actual hand. This also makes it difficult for the HM9 movement to become adjusted in a standard method, because the two balance tires will produce two various oscillations, but the brand has created a proprietary technology especially for adjusting the movement. The particular performance of this complex energy unit maintains a 45-hour power reserve at a beat price of 18, 000 bph.
To complete the magnificent appearance of the HM9-SV, MB& F paired each colour with a sharp hand-stitched crocodile leather strap. Both white gold or platinum watches are paired with the dark brown mahogany strap, even though the PVD blue movement is usually paired with a navy blue view. The PVD black activity version is perhaps the most traditional in the series, with a thoroughly clean and concise black.
Combining one of the brand's most eye-catching movements using the case of one of the most committed and labor-intensive watches ever, there is no denying the solely mechanical gorgeousness of the minimal edition MB& F HM9-SV. Only five samples of each and every color will be produced.
