Impressive Cool Diving Watch From MB&F

The renowned Swiss watchmaker MB&F has planned to impress everyone at SIHH 2017 with the new Horological Machine No. 7 Aquapod , a cool diving watch that can handle 50-meter deep waters, but it’s absolutely incredible from any angle you look at it. This exquisite timepiece is actually the first round-cased Horological Machine designed by the Swiss brand, with the odd fact being that the MB&F HM7 Aquapod has been released after the introduction of the HM8. Showing off a 53.8 mm case consisting 95 parts, this precious watch also benefits from a sapphire sandwich inner case where a spherical mechanical automatic movement makes everything come to life. One crown on the MB&F HM7 Aquapod is for winding the movement, and the other one is for setting the time, a perfect balance and a visual effect that will surely charm everyone. The MB&F HM7 Aquapod also benefits from a lot of luminant, making this watch a very noticeable piece in the dark. The movement inside of the MB&F HM7 Aquapod comprises 303 parts, operating at 2.5Hz (18,000bph) and bragging about a 72-hour power reserve. Inspired by jellyfish tentacles, the automatic rotor was produced from titanium, with the weight having been constructed out of platinum. A black rubber-style strap, that’s actually an aircraft-grade Fluorocarbon FKM 70 Shore A elastomer, finishes everything off and keeps this watch attached to your wrist. The HM7 Aquapod will be available either in titanium or 18k rose gold, with 33 pieces in titanium priced at 98,000 Swiss francs, and 66 pieces in gold costing you exactly 118,000 Swiss francs.

The Angelus U10 Tourbillon Lumière Dead Seconds Tourbillon

Angelus was a brand that died in the seventies, along with most of the Swiss watch industry when the cheap quartz watch came along. Now the label has been revived by La Joux-Perret, the ingenious movement specialist that’s the sister company of Arnold & Son. Its first timepiece takes over where the original Angelus ended – in the seventies. The U10 Tourbillon Lumière is equipped with a large, oblong case inspired by the watches and industrial design of that period – echoes of the early Beta 21 quartz watches are obvious. And to top it all off, the U10 Tourbillon Lumière has a dead seconds that ticks in one second steps, just like the quartz watches that decimated Angelus forty years ago. Visually it is pure seventies, with the case inspired by German industrial designer Dieter Rams’ creations for Braun. Measuring a large 62.75 mm by 38 mm, the case is made from BO-988, a steel alloy with higher corrosion resistance than the 316L steel typically used for watch cases. The movement was developed by the talented team at La Joux-Perret. It’s a one minute flying tourbillon with the tourbillon regulator mounted on a titanium arm, seemingly floating in between two large sapphire crystals. That effect is enhanced by the matte black coating on the inside of the case around the tourbillon. Also made of clear sapphire, the aperture for the dial is also matte black on its inside. The case has seven sapphire crystals, on the front, back and sides, each of which is bevelled and set slightly above the case. One of the crystals is curved at 90 degrees, wrapping around the to show off the tourbillon. And another is for the power reserve indicator, located at six o’clock on the side of the case. The Angelus U10 Tourbillon Lumière is a limited edition of 25 watches. Pricing will be announced at Baselworld.
