See more @ http://ablogtoread.com/mbf/mbf-hm3-watch-review/. Reviewing the beautifully unique MB&F Horological Machine Number 3 "HM3," here in its Sidewinder form. In white gold and titanium, the watch shows the time and date with an intense level of avant garde luxury character that you can only find in an MB&F timepiece.

Current Collection: a Breitling | an Omega | a Tag Heuer | a Seiko | and a G Shock

I like the mechanics involved in this piece . . . not sure the overall design is for me. However @ $80K, I don't need to worry if I like it or not! :lol

MB&F are truly masterminds!

There is no longer any difference in movements from around the globe when everything is designed by a computer and quality parts are used. Its not like the old days when the Swiss ruled because they were pasionantly engrossed with their creations doing everything by hand. But in the day of computer modeling everything is the same. Sure, a company can now make their own movement by changing sprocket sizes and have having a computer tell you what size to create the next. And everything is already "timed" in the computer before it is actually produced to create a reliable movement.

BUT... MB&F take it to the next level. I applaud their creations for sure.
