If you have a weak heart, you are advised to stop reading the following article because the watch we are about to present will make your heart skip a beat at least. This is not just a watch, this is almost an industrial plant as it contains hundreds of pieces and technologically advanced mechanism that will show you time in the most unique manner. The Horological Machine No.2 comes from MB&F, which is a company that goes beyond just manufacturing watches; they are truly artists that make concept watches and try to come up with different ways of enhancing time telling. This and the fact that they choose an amazing futuristic, avant-garde direction when it comes to style, makes their watches truly unique.
The Horological Machine No.2 comes with two portholes that tell time in a different manner. The one on the right contains jumping hours and concentric retrograde minutes while on the left side it manages to give its wearer quite a view with the retrograde date and Bi- Hemisphere Moon Phase. This watch has been created to show time in a three dimensional manner and it was designed by Jean Mark Wiederrecht. The features that are stated above are the first of this kind created in the world, a characteristic that gives this watch a truly unique feeling. Some of the features are: an energy efficient mechanism with asymmetrical-tooth gear wheels that manage to give it the best precision. The case is also amazing as it has quite a steampunk design with lots of elements and details, so it’s safe to say that this is a piece of art. The innovation when it comes to the Horological Machine No.2 is the fact that its movement manages to keep the jumping hours functioning simultaneously with the retrograde minutes that go from 60 to 0.
What will probably blow your mind is the fact that the watch has been created with over 450 components, which makes it stand up to its name and truly being a machine.
If we managed to convince you buy this watch, you should be expecting to pay for it somewhere around $60,000 because a time telling machine like this doesn’t come cheap.
