Catalogue Note

MB&F stands for Maximillian Büsser & Friends, representing the ideal to gather the talents of various artists and watchmakers, the brand sets out on its mission to create unconventional and original horological masterpieces. Launched in 2010, Horological Machine No 4 Thunderbolt (HM4) was regarded as one of the most visually spectacular and ingenious wristwatches the watch world has ever seen. With its futuristic appearance, one would imagine the HM4 was created straight out of a science fiction but in reality, it was inspired by paintings of WWII aircrafts. The aerodynamic case and turbine-like pods bear much resemblance to the sleek form and engines of a military plane. Fitted with a three-dimensional horological engine which consists of 311 parts and a horizontal twin mainspring barrel, it took the brand 3 years to develop this technical marvel. In spite of the complex nature of the movement, the functionality of the HM4 is rather practical with separated indication of time and power reserve in individual dials. HM4 Thunderbolt serves a testament to MB&F's tireless drive to break down barriers and uncover the realm of limitless possibilities. 

Please note MB&F has generously offers a complimentary service for the successful buyer of this watch within six months after purchase, including shipping fee of the watch to the MB&F atelier in Switzerland. An one-year warranty will also be provided.
