Read more about this watch...
In July 2005, Maximilian Büsser created the world's first horological Concept Brand. MB&F (Maximilian Büsser & Friends). One of the Büsser main goals in creating MB&F was to bring a child's sense of awe and sense of playfulness into high-end watchmaking. MB&F is not a watch brand, it is an artistic and micro-engineering concept laboratory in which collectives of independent horological professionals areassembled each year to design and craft radical Horological Machines. Respecting tradition without beeing shackled by it enables MB&F to act as a catalyst in fusing traditional high-quality watchmaking with cutting-edge technology and avant-garde three-dimentional sculpture.
Why "The Frog"? According the MB&F one of their customers said the 2 dome-like structures on the original HM3 looked like frog's eyes sticking out of water - as frogs enjoy being in water with their eyes exposed to look for prey. So MB&F liked the idea enought that they wanted make a watch that truly indulged this frog fantasy. The project was much more complicated than simple changing the domes which are used for the time (one for hours, the other for the minutes). The "eyes" are under a perfect dome of sapphire crystal in all black and white colors. There is a tear drop shape on the top (inside the crystal) that indicates whether the dome is used for the minutes os hours. The pointed tip of the tear drop indicates where you look to read the minutes or hours. You will also find a date display ring on the top of the watch as well. A small arrow on the case tells you were to read the date. This MB&F Holorolgical Machine Nº3 will catch every look.
