The Way The Future Was

MB&F REINVENTS THE DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Maximilian Busser is the First among Friends at Maximilian Busser & Friends, otherwise known as MB&F. He and the people that he gathers to him have given us four of their Horological Machines, the unconventional and free-fancy watches that turn the ideas of watchmaking on their head. He is free to roam where his imagination takes him. Many of his watches don’t even make sense… until you see them in person, in action. Once you see how they work, they become not only sensible but… almost inevitable.

A Bird in the Hand

Sea-Gull of China may have a silver bullet, hitting the mark squarely with its line of classic hand-wound pocket watches.The resurgence of pocket watches is often dismissed as a novelty, only resurfacing for speculation, tickling for impulsive googling in the wee hours of the morning. With so many other things, metal and sharp-edged or polymer and easily scratched, competing for finite pocket space, any scenario where one heads out shopping for these grandpa gadgets usually peters out when reconciling practicality and price-points.But the idea remains,

In The Cold Rare Air

Christian Redl’s next challenge and the Edox Iceman II For a man, the irony of it will be excruciating, and for his timepiece, the extremes, mollifying. Extreme free diver Christian Redl who set the world record for diving under ice last year, now joins the Gokyo Project at Nepal’s Mount Everest National Park to challenge the glacial lakes of the Gokyo wetlands.On February 12, 2011, Redl dove 200 feet down into the frigid waters of Lake Weissensee in the Austrian Alps. The dive saw Redl descending at a rate of almost five feet per second and touching down after 42 seconds,

The MB&F Legacy Machine No. 2, from Geneva, in Geneva

Editor-in-Chief Carl Cunanan takes a stroll through old Geneva with the MB&F Legacy Machine No. 2 perched proudly on his wrist. With him on loan from the MB&F showroom in Geneva, Carl felt compelled to document his fleeting moment with the LM2--short, but so very sweet.

Defining Classical

Jaeger-LeCoultre uses a brand new model line to remind us of their history.Jaeger-LeCoultre has been making some very strong statements lately, bringing forth wristwatches that grab attention and generate discussion at a glance. Their new pieces have been strong, masculine and daring, all in the direction of the next generation of wristwatches.But Jaeger-LeCoultre has been around for rather a long time, and has earned itself the reverential nickname of the Grande Maison. Since 1833,

Saddle the fastest horses: The Ferrari by Panerai Limited Edition 8 Days GMT

This particular timepiece generates mixed emotions not just to its owner but also to many that happen to have the opportunity to study it up close. It’s a beautiful albeit very simply designed instrument. Its craftsmanship and outright appearance are not what stimulates the undefined ratings of the watch. The primary source of the conundrum is the relatively new association with the mighty Ferrari brand.Certainly we regard the partnership to be more appropriate as both brands are Italian, but since 1992 until the seemingly abrupt cessation in 2003,

The magnificent Breguet and his … Flying Machine?

The Breguet Type XX isn’t what most budding enthusiasts would consider typical of the storied name’s offerings. It doesn’t have many of the popular innovations and details of worksmanship you come to expect from the watchmaking company.The casework is simple, though it does carry the fluting on the side. The dial shows none of the legendary detailwork expertise for which Breguet has become known and popular, especially if you choose the unique carbon fiber dial that comes with the titanium case. You have no guillochage, no “secret number,” no signature.

The Superlative Deep Sea

In 1953, Rolex successfully tested a prototype watch called the Deep Sea Special strapped outside the bathyscape FNRS-2 to a depth of 3,150m or 10,336ft. Rolex proved its design mantra with an ultra-rigid Oyster case. By Basel 1954, they had raised the depth rating on all Submariners to 180m or 600ft, in conjunction with the release of the Submariner model 6204. On January 23, 1960, Rolex pushed the envelope further with the Rolex Piccard (model 7205) attached to the bathyscape Trieste that successfully dived to a depth of 10,916m or 35,800ft.

Kobe Goes to China

A black-themed party was held at the Hublot boutique on Nanjing West Road, Shanghai. The event presented the King Power Black Mamba Chronograph watch, and was attended by none other than NBA legend Kobe Bryant.As the newest brand ambassador of Hublot, Kobe Bryant’s signature timepiece—the King Power Black Mamba Chronograph—was first launched in Los Angeles. The collection is limited to only 250 pieces worldwide. On August 7, 2013, the basketball superstar attended the event at Shanghai, much to the delight of the local NBA fans. There,

Bred by America, Born for Britain, Blooded Over Manila

Bremont salutes the P-51 Mustang with a limited edition chronograph. An actual reliquary, the timepiece incorporates parts fashioned from the aluminum skin of a WWII veteran with a history that puts it in sorties above embattled Manila. In 2011, the award winning British brand Bremont introduced the Limited Edition Mustang P-51 watch—a salute to this phenomenal American-built fighter plane of World War II.From Bremont’s pre-release press statement (for the complete text and specifications,

Deeper Than You Thought

ORANGE, simply put is a color between red and yellow. But what has this got to do with diving or the DOXA SUB? It has been tested and proven that when you go diving, the color that is most visible underwater is the color orange. The DOXA SUB has built its reputation on this fact and the color orange.Few non-divers have heard of the watch company DOXA, but if ever a definitive history of the dive watch is written, one manufacturer will stand along side the likes of Rolex, Blancpain, and Omega as being a great dive watch. DOXA S.A. Is a small company from Bienne, Switzerland,

Sartorial Sundials

The Navitron Steampunk Wrist Compass and Sundial Advertisements in gas-lit England would’ve labelled this a sunwatch, as made by sunwatchmakers with names composed of initials and notable surnames. Now the things have been fashioned into wearable sunwatches, wrist-sunwatches if you like, to attract steampunk aficionados with their off-beat tastes for improbable practicalities. I’ll admit that I’m one of them.But does it really work? It should, though not while being worn on the wrist.
