The MB&F Horological Machine 11, dubbed ‘Architect’, is a wearable story, a narrative of space and time that transcends the ordinary. Inspired by the innovative spirit of 1960s architecture, it’s a watch that you don’t just wear—you live it. This timepiece bridges the gap between a house and a watch, with a design that seems to grow organically from the wrist, offering a glimpse into a futuristic, yet humanistic approach to timekeeping.
At its heart lies a central flying tourbillon, a beacon within a sapphire crystal dome, akin to the most sacred of spaces, radiating time with a celestial cadence. Four unique chambers extend from this core, each serving a specific purpose: telling time, indicating power reserve, measuring temperature, and setting the time. The dynamic structure can be turned, and with each rotation, it not only alters its display but also winds the watch, a feature that showcases the brand’s innovative approach to horology.
Crafted from Grade-5 titanium and sapphire crystal, the Horological Machine Nº11 Architect is a testament to MB&F’s mastery over complex forms and advanced materials. Each of the 25 pieces in both the blue and red gold launch editions is a confluence of aesthetic elegance and mechanical brilliance, reflecting the sky and earth in their design.
More than a watch, the HM11 is an architectural marvel at the scale of the wrist. It respects the form of the human body and the mechanics of human perception, all while pushing the boundaries of what a timepiece can be. The HM11 is a limited edition of 50 pieces, with 25 in each color variant, and is a wearable piece of architecture that encapsulates the essence of MB&F’s creative vision.
