MB&F’s newest creation is limited to 25 pieces.
The passionate team of horologists at MB&F is proud to reveal the all-new Horological Machine Nº11 Architect, inspired by 1960s human-centric architecture, blending innovative watchmaking with art. The MB&F Horological Machine Nº11 Architect ushers in a new era of watchmaking, mirroring the humanistic architectural innovations of the mid-20th century. Conceptualized by MB&F founder Maximilian Büsser, the timepiece takes inspiration from buildings that mirrored the human form and its spatial perception. Central to the HM11 Architect is a flying tourbillon, encapsulated under a double-domed sapphire roof, reminiscent of the clerestory windows of ancient temples. This central tourbillon is flanked by four symmetrical volumes, each housing a distinct function: time display, power reserve, a thermometer, and a time-setting crown. These features are accessible through a rotating structure, emphasizing the watch’s interactive nature and energy efficiency.
Crafted from polished grade-5 titanium, the HM11 Architect’s peripheral rooms contrast with the openness of the central atrium. The entire structure, limited to 25 pieces in ozone blue and 5N gold, showcases MB&F’s commitment to blending avant-garde design with time-honored watchmaking practices. The watch’s design showcases glossy white interiors with expansive sapphire crystal windows, creating a visually stunning and functional space. The time room displays hours and minutes through rod-mounted orbs and red-tipped arrows, while the power reserve room follows a similar design. A unique addition is the mechanical thermometer, which provides temperature readings without external energy. The MB&F Horological Machine Nº11 Architect represents a fusion of art and science, where architecture and watchmaking meet.
