MB&F has introduced a new time-telling model known as the HM11 Architect. In the past, the Haute horologer has tapped into automotive, aircraft, and even science-fiction as inspiration for its innovative Horological Machine watches. This new timepiece marks MB&F’s first time exploring architectural influences for its creations.

The HM11 is crafted with experimental mid-century architecture in mind. Founder, Maximilian Büsser was fascinated by the works, as well as a statement made by Swiss architect, Le Corbusier: “une maison est une machine à habiter,“ which means “a house is a machine to live in.” With this, Büsser played on the blurred lines of that quote to develop the latest MB&F’s Horological Machine.

The resulting HM11 features a three-dimensional titanium build that’s highly technical and sculptural, while also exuding the intriguing appeal of organic forms. Inside the 42mm-wide machine is a vertically stacked 60-second flying tourbillon protected by double-domed sapphire crystals. As for power, the timepiece is equipped to run for as long as 4 days when fully wound. In addition to that, the HM11 also debuts a new efficient system that charges the watch for up to two and a half hours when it’s turned to 90 degrees.

With a retail price of $230,000 USD, the HM11 Architect is released as a 25-piece limited edition for each of its colorways: Blue and Red Gold. The former is accompanied by a white rubber strap, while the latter is paired with a khaki-green one. Both iterations are currently available for inquiry via MB&F’s official online store.

Elsewhere in watches, UNDEFEATED and Unimatic release a limited-edition Modello Tre U3-ULVN.
