MB&F is presenting its tenth Horological Machine, simple dubbed Horological Machine N°10 “Bulldog”.
“The design for this new watch came to Max Büsser while he was travelling in Japan; Horological Machine N°10 Bulldog bounded up in his mind’s eye just as a loyal pup might greet a returning master.”
“What you see now in front of you is more or less exactly what I saw at the time,” says Max.
Now, the main features: a rounded, compact body of titanium or red gold, two prominent aluminium time-display “eyes”, a collar studded with projections that allow you to wind the mainspring or set the time. Stout but flexible “legs” that wrap firmly around your wrist. Just like the creature for which it is named, there’s more to HM10 “Bulldog” than meets the eye. Its hinged jaws open and shut according to the amount of wind left in its mainspring. If you can clearly see the rows of shining teeth lining the jaws, get ready, because that means “Bulldog” is full of fight, charged up with a 45 hours of mainspring energy.
One final piece of advice for those who come across Horological Machine N°10 “Bulldog” is engraved on its body, like a cautionary message you might find on the collar of a particularly feisty canine. The beast may be intimidating, but it ultimately exists in service of another. People would do well to remember — “Forget the dog, beware of the owner”.
HM10 “Bulldog” is available now through authorized dealers, at an MSRP of $105,000 for the titanium model and $120,000 in red gold.
