Why We Love it

Something is changing in the watch industry!

More and more independent watchmakers are making their mark on the watch industry, claiming their own section of the rapidly growing market. Alongside F.P. Journe and a few others, precious few makers have made a bigger splash than MB&F.

Founded in Geneva in 2005, MB&F was designed to completely re-imagine the concept of a wristwatch. Known today for its other-worldly designs and extremely complicated open-worked movements, MB&F challenges the notion that with watches, form follows function. Much to the contrary, MB&F always led with design, and that has contributed greatly to the brand’s success. 

Take, for example, this MB&F Legacy Machine Split Escapement EVO. This piece may look incredible, but it’s equally mechanically significant. In order to isolate the balance wheel at the top of the domed sapphire crystal, MB&F used a massive balance staff ‘splitting’ the balance wheel from the escapement wheel. Therefore, the balance is visible from the front, while mechanically, the escapement continues to operate as usual. It’s a brilliant work of engineering, and the result is magnificent.

This model displays the time, date, and 72 hour power reserve on the ice blue dial. Each display is raised off the dial, which combined with the spectacle that is the floating escapement wheel, creates an insane, three-dimensional quality.

Outfitted on a signed rubber strap with titanium hardware, this piece is a mechanical work of art.

Looking to make a statement with an exclamation point at the end?

Throw this MB&F on and be prepared for the multiple, "Hey, what's that on your wrist?" questions to come your way.

Brand Story

+
Swiss watch industry veteran, businessman, and entrepreneur Maximilian Büsser founded his eponymous brand MB&F (“Maximilian Büsser & Friends”) in 2005 following accomplished stints at Harry Winston and Jaeger-LeCoultre. A horological laboratory of sorts, MB&F is unlike traditional watchmaking enterprises, bringing together innovators from across the industry to collaborate on “Horological Machines” and “Legacy Machines” — timekeeping devices and wristwatches that push the creative and engineering envelopes in completely new directions.

A relatively small and nimble company, MB&F crafts kinetic sculptures in partnership with some of the most learned minds in watchmaking, including Stephen McDonnell, Kari Voutilainen, L’Epée, and others, the results of which are breathtaking. Certain of these works are displayed in the company’s “M.A.D. Galleries” (“mechanical art devices”) around the world, allowing buyers, potential customers, and others to view the firm’s groundbreaking horological art in a nontraditional setting.

MB&F and its creations have been awarded by the ​​Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie de Genève — the “Oscars” of the watch world — in recognition of the firm’s creativity, spirit, and watchmaking accomplishment. Truly, there are few companies operating today whose wares can be considered as thought-provoking and innovative as those of Maximilian Büsser & Friends.
