The Watch

Estimate: $2,500

The M.A.D.1's special features are the fully visible automatic winding rotor – the star of the show! – but also the lateral time display. Powered by one of the rare automatic movements with unidirectional winding (essential for an easy, high-speed rotation), the well-known and reliable Miyota 821A, which has been flipped upside-down – a nod to MB&F's HM3 and HM8 – to showcase a pretty crazy triple-blade winding rotor, crafted in titanium and tungsten. The typically MB&F lateral time display is obtained thanks to two aluminium alloy cylinders for the hours and minutes, engraved and boosted with Super-LumiNova. For this Pièce Unique, both the winding rotor and the time display received a special pink treatment.

About

For the past 16 years, MB&F has been creating other-worldly horological machines. Founder and creative director Maximilian Büsser loves creating these insane mechanical timepieces, but their very high price – a logical consequence of their complexity, limited production and quality of finishing – has generated a bit of frustration: his family and most of his close friends will never be able to afford them. Max has been playing with a side project for quite some time now, creating a machine that is more accessible, under another label, but always with our crazy touch. The result: “M.A.D.1”. The M.A.D.1 is reserved in priority for the partners who have made the MB&F adventure possible: the "Friends", the suppliers who have been conceiving and manufacturing MB&F Machines for the past 16 years, and the members of The Tribe, the MB&F owners' club.
