HM4 Thunderbolt - “Horological Machine”

hm4thunderbolt1

Let’s get it out of the way.  The HM4 Thunderbolt is not a watch, it’s a “horological machine.”  Which just happens to be a fancy name for a watch.  A really, really elaborate watch.

Created by high-end purveyors of wrist candy, MB&F, it’s claimed to be the result of three intense years of development.  While that would sound too much for an ordinary watch, this  stunning timepiece is certainly anything but ordinary.

The HM4 Thunderbolt sports a 54 x 52 x 24 mm aviation-inspired case that looks like the unholy union of miniature jet turbines and some weird steampunk aesthetic.  With a mechanism consisting of 50 jewels and 311 individual components. The case is made from grade 5 titanium, with see-through sapphire glass sections that let you see all the mechanical wizardry that happens within.

It has its own kinetic charger, which stores up to 72 hours of standby power on the two mainspring barrels.  There are two dials along the side: one for the actual time and another showing how much power remains.   Strap is a hand-stitched calfskin creation (black), with a titanium and white gold buckle.

This limited edition good looker designed by Maximilian Busser & Friends is surely a collector’s item as the product has been designed especially for those who would like to own a masterpiece.

This version called as Horological Machine No.3 has been introduced in two versions : “Sidewinder”, with its cones perpendicular to the arm; and “Starcruiser”, with its cones in-line with the arm. Each has its own very distinct visual characteristics; each offers its own unique angle on telling the time.

Horological Machine No. 2: pure watchporn

Maximilian Büsser’s Horological Machine No.2 is pure watch-porn, whose obscure mechanical innovations read like the demented fantasy of some clockpunk virtuoso.

Horological Machine No.2 (HM2) is a holistically conceived and engineered three-dimensional timekeeping machine for the wrist. The functions and indications were specifically conceived to tailor to the strengths of HM2’s chief watchmaker, Jean-Marc Wiederrecht. The bespoke architecture of the highly technical movement was developed to both fit and complement the radical form of the modular case. HM2 is the world’s first mechanical movement offering: Instantaneous Jump Hour, Concentric Retrograde Minutes, Retrograde Date, Bi-Hemisphere Moon Phase and Automatic Winding.
