  • Catalogue Essay

    Uncommon, unforgettable and unconventional - the HM3 is not only an avant-garde artwork for the wrist, but also a highly complex timekeeping machine. Launched by the Geneva-based manufacturer MB&F in 2009, the HM3 is a wondrous concoction of Swiss horological prowess, technological mastery and nonconformist design. The watch consists of two time-indicating cones, of which the top caps of the truncated cones are brazed to ensure maximum water-resistance and the red “hands” are cut by laser to obtain high precision and minimum mass.

    The movement of HM3 has been turned upside down to allow for an unconcealed panoramic view of the oscillations of the balance wheel as well as the gold winding rotor’s awe-inspiring arcs. Turning the watch over discloses the cutting-edge technology behind its inverted movement: two large ceramic bearings efficiently transmit power up to the cones and date wheel.

    Complimented with an international warranty and a UFO-shaped presentation box, the present lot offers a wonderful opportunity for watch collectors to possess an exceptional masterwork.
