The deeper you go in the ocean, the less light you see – and red light is the first to disappear. Thus, deep-sea jellyfish often have red stomachs as camouflage, and it’s these creatures that inspired the Platinum Red version of MB&F’s HM7 Aquapod.
“The organic jellyfish-inspired design of HM7 Aquapod is counter-balanced by the very mechanical horology within: a central 60-second flying tourbillon tops the concentric vertical movement architecture, with indications radiating out from the centre like ripples in a pond. Like many jellyfish, HM7 glows in the dark: on the hour and minute numerals, around the inside of the movement and along the tentacle-like winding rotor.”
” The 303-component (391 for the Platinum Red edition), 72-hour power reserve HM7 Engine was developed in-house by MB&F. Spherically three-dimensional, all its mechanisms – from the winding rotor at the bottom, to the flying tourbillon on top – rotate concentrically around the centre. The curves of the high-domed sapphire crystal are mirrored in the shape of the time display rings. ” Limited to just 25 examples.
