    MB&F released the NEW Legacy Machine 101 (LM101) today. You may have seen it already, because it seems like every watch blog and watch site is posting about the watch. So I will keep this short for the time being: The new Legacy Machine distills timekeeping down to its bare essentials with...

    The M.A.D.Gallery in Geneva is a surprising place… Where else could the classic, 19th-century inspired MB&F Legacy Machine No.1 have encountered Xia Hang, a young, contemporary artist from Beijing ? The story of the new Performance Art piece – the LM1 Xia Hang – starts with a powerful...

    Dear Friends, When I started MB&F back in 2005, it was with a rebellious spirit and a good dose of rage… I wanted to do things differently from what I had done during the first 15 years of my professional life. So if you had asked me, would I ever create a round, classic watch again, the...

    Horological Machine No.3 is one of our most iconic Machines, no doubt. After the shocks of HM1 and HM2, it hammered home the message that MB&F was resolutely different. HM3 is designed like a spaceship, escaped from the science fiction movies we loved as kids. And it literally turned...

    Have you ever noticed? Airplanes designed with stealth technology usually look anything but inconspicuous… Their strange, angular shapes look like they’re made to actually attract your attention – as if the engineers conceiving them had got the brief wrong. The stealthier they are, the more...

    Dear Friends, Happy New Year! The end of 2012 was unusually busy for us: just after the amazing wins at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (two prizes for LM1!), we plunged straight into the HM5 launch.

    Horological Machine No.5 is the epitome of the 70’s – a time when everything seemed possible: space exploration, supersonic flight, hovercrafts, jet packs and the first supercars like the Lamborghini Miura... In the watchmaking world, quartz movements and LED displays prepared to wipe out...

    You may have heard of Dendrobates Leucomelas, more commonly known as the poison dart frog – its deadly potential is camouflaged in the tropical rainforest by an exotically-patterned black and yellow skin... Similarly, the high-tech zirconium case of the new HM3 Poison Dart Frog is disguised by...

    Every so often, the people at MB&F like to share their work with someone they admire, in a special co-creation exercise – they do this by asking an external creator to reinterpret one of their Machines. You might remember the HM2.2 “Blackbox” designed with Alain Silberstein; the impressive...

    It's not easy to keep up with all the news and the appointments and find the time to write about it. It is also a challenge to get a computer at the press centre, but hey, I managed. In between appointments I just give you the link to the album that contains today's (and some from yesterday)...

    Hi all, This is my first day at Baselworld. It's press only today. I already was amazed by seeing the new entrance and the construction they built over the Messeplatz (the main fair square). No more blue skies. Picture taken standing in front of the entrance of Hall 2.0. First stop was of...

    MB&F almost always succeed in doing things in a different way, and I mean that as a compliment. Just look at their Baselworld invitation: Pretty cool huh? :-! Related link: MB&F - Maximilian Büsser & Friends - Horological Machines

    On January 14th, 2012, I visited the M.A.D.Gallery in Geneva. For those of you who don't know, the Gallery is owned by Maximilian Buesser, the visionair and founder of MB&F. Max produces the Horological Machines you may have seen here at Watchuseek or elsewhere on the internet. Maybe even you...
