HM8 RT

Over the last decade, two indelible forms have dominated the main characteristics of an MB&F Horological Machine: the distinctive angular form and optical prism manifested in HM5 and HMX; and the signature battle-axe winding rotor, which took centre stage on top of HM3, MB&F’s most popular model to date. HM8 takes those two idiosyncratic features and infuses them with high-octane Can-Am race car-inspired design. HM8 features a curvaceous yet angular case with dual optical prisms vertically displaying bi-directional jumping hours and minutes, while the distinctive battle-axe winding rotor is visible on top.

But the real star of HM8 is its Can-Am inspired chrome “roll bars” majestically sweeping from the top of the front of the Machine down to the tapered back. HM8’s Engine sits in full view under nearly invisible sapphire crystal engine cover. The open centre of the battle-axe rotor enables appreciation of the circular wave finish on the movement, while the hours and minute indication discs are visible day and night in the corners.
