  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced in 2008, Horological Machine No.2 was MB&F’s endeavor to surprise the watchmaking industry in its sophomore year. With its unmissable rectangular case, eye-catching dual portholes and flying buttresses, the watch was a sensation. Its radically pioneering movement offered instantaneous jumping hours, concentric retrograde minutes, retrograde date, bi-hemisphere moon-phase and automatic winding.

    Inspired by the space platforms of early science fiction novels, the Horological Machine No.2 was the brand’s paean to everyone’s imagination-imbued childhood. The watch was also manufactured in a limited number of 125 examples. A combination of great technical prowess and daring design, this present watch amply embodies the best of both worlds.
