Horological Machine No.6 SV

LAUNCHED AT THE SIHH 2016,  THE CREATION MARKS A MILESTONE FOR MB&F !

The timepiece is Stunning! The transparency of its case obviously helps as the mouvement is apparent but it’s more than that... This one offers Complexity, Beauty and Creativity in a balanced way and that’s the most difficult thing to achieve for a brand !

The movement is marvelous and thanks to high tech machines, you can fully appreciate the caliber between two sapphire crystal plates. Knowing that sapphire is a very resistant material, huge efforts were applied to produce such curves.

In the middle of the "sandwich", you'll find either 5N Red gold or 950 platinum with a design inspired by the art deco style « Streamline Moderne »

Another Genius touch is the « gluing process » that ensures the water resistance. This is the « blue line » that circles the mouvement. It brings a wonderful visual effect and clearly express MB&F’s creativity.

A 60 second flying tourbillon regulates the 475 components of the HM6 S.V and the left crown allows you to open or close a semi-spherical titanium shield ! Outstanding feature and quite useful because on few occasions, its heart needs to be protected.

Only 20 pieces of the S.V (Sapphire Vison) version will be produced.

Hats off MB&F !
