  • Catalogue Essay

    Maximilian Büsser does not think out of the box, he thinks in a totally different universe and his extreme unabashedly and unapologetically creative timepieces speak for themselves.

    The Horological Machine 3 was launched in 2009 and its shape, mechanical construction and time telling defy conventional nomenclature.

    Time is read via two rotating cones placed on the right side of the case with hours and day/night indicated via the cone in front and the minutes indicated via the cone in the back. On the left is the date indicator and an open section enabling an uninterrupted view of the movement and rotor.

    To achieve this, the 300+ component movement has been turned upside down. Turning the watch over reveals two large ceramic bearings efficiently transmit power up to the cones and date wheel.

    Made in only 55 pieces the present Horological Machine 3 was serviced in September 2022 by MB&F and comes with a one year warranty. It is also accompanied by its full set of accessories.
