MB&F’s Horological Machine No.5 is On the Road Again


The 1970s was probably a fun time to be in, everything cool from space exploration, supersonic flight, hovercrafts, jet packs and the first supercars all seemed to be spring up like miracles! And MB&F’s Horological Machine No.5 pays homage to them all and puts them ‘On the Road Again’. Drawing inspiration from supercars like the Lamborghini Miura, the contemporary watch is surprisingly not dated, but looks futuristic! The watch comes with an automatic movement with an optical-grade sapphire prism, “which reflects light 90 degrees and magnifies it by 20% – allowing to display bi-directional jumping hours and minutes vertically“. Limited to 66 pieces, the watch features a 3D horological engine that has been created by Jean-François Mojon and Vincent Boucard of Chronode. It boasts of a 42-hour power reserve, and 30-meters of water resistance.

The case is made of Zirconium with internal water resistant steel engine container, with exhaust ports to drain water. The non-circular watch has dimension of 51.5mm x 49mm x 22.5mm, covered with a smoked optical grade sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating and 20% magnification. Sporting a sapphire crystal caseback the watch has been finished with a sculptured rubber strap and titanium tang buckle.
