MB&F Create Limited Edition HM7 Aquapod Timepiece

By Paul Joseph

Avant-garde Swiss watch brand MB&F has created a limited edition version of its M7 Aquapod timepiece in grade 5 titanium and featuring a bright green ceramic bezel.

In January last year the innovative watchmaker introduced the Horological Machine No. 7 (HM7) ‘Aquapod’ at the SIHH 2017 – the company’s first aquatic-themed watch inspired by the jellyfish.

The dive watch was launched in two versions: one with a red gold case and black ceramic bezel and another with a titanium case and a blue ceramic bezel.

This latest version is equally impressive, boasting an unidirectional bezel construction, which isn’t attached to the watch itself, but instead floats freely above the dial.

The overall design of the watch remains the same, and the annular design of the dial inspired by the jellyfish is unchanged.

The biggest change comes in the form of the striking green ceramic bezel. A matching shade of green has also been used on the indicator on the heavily domed sapphire crystal.

Developed entirely in-house, the watch’s movement features a winding rotor, mainspring barrel, hour and minute indicators, and flying tourbillon. It consists of 303 components, beats at 2.5Hz, and has a power reserve of 72 hours.

The MB&F HM7 Aquapod Titanium Green is limited to just 50 pieces and is priced at $108,000.

MB&F was founded by Maximilian Büsser in Geneva, Switzerland in 2005.
