MB&F – Horological Machine N°6 “Space Pirate”
“Has been designed to operate in the hostile enviroment of space : the space on your wrist.”
The watch brought to us from the outer space by MB&F. That’s how I can describe this watch. I can say this is the most futuristic and complex watch I’ve ever seen.
In each of the four corners we can see 360° sphere covered (front and back) by the transparent sapphire crystal copulas. Two spherical indications rotate vertically, showing hours and minutes. Two spherical turbines spin horizontally, regulating the winding system in the whole case. At the center we can see 60-seconds flying tourbillon housed in a sapphire crystal dome. There’s sapphire crystal on the back, so we can see 475 precisely finished components of the movement, which required over three years of extension. The case of the watch manufactured by Les Artisans Boitiers is made of aeronautic grade Ti-6Al-4V titanium case. The power reserve in this timepiece is approximately 72 hours. Water resistance is about 30 metres. Hand-stitched calfskin strap in the black colour with titanium folding buckle matches well with this whole futuristic watch.
The price of the watch is : 198,000 CHF
