HOROLOGICAL MACHINE No 8 CAN-AM
A STUNNING TRIBUTE TIMEPIECE TO THE « CAN-AM » SPIRIT !
With the HM8, MB&F pays tribute to the Canadian-American Challenge Cup or CAN-AM.
Running from 1966 to 1987, the race was a « no limit » concept from North America racers as they felt that Europeans were too restrictive in the car racing discipline.
Basically, any car could joint the competition and « may the best win » ! Many famous names were present such as McLaren, Lola, BRM, Porche and more… This year the CAN-AM would have celebrated its 50th anniversary.
The HM8 has quite a lot of interesting characteristics!
An angular case with optical prisms, Roll bars made of titanium, Transparency on the top side, Optical effects, an inverted movement with the renowned MB&F Grendizer/Goldorak winding rotor… In fact, the timepiece integrates 2 key elements of the HM3 (its winding rotor) & HM5 (its case). And Yes, 3 + 5 = 8 !
However the HM8 is clearly a new proposition and we love it!
Light, Fine, Original its design stands out. The background story is great and the final execution perfect so
