I hope you have time during the weekend to discover the newest creation of Max Büsser and his Friends by watching a movie and by macro-shots I took from the Aquapod.
MB&F plunges into the water with Horological Machine No.7 … HM7 called the Aquapod is inspired by a jellyfish.
Horological creations from MB&F were and are always a little different. It is part of the success of what Maximilian Büsser, the founder of the company, did and does. Max is extremely creative, up to a certain point he stayed a child in his mind, therefore he sees things refreshingly different. Max is able to bring incredible objects to “life” that show the time. Max has been blasting into outer space, launching into the sky, powering down the road and around the track and now he plunges into the water …
HM7 Aquapod began its gestation as a horological jellyfish, and the architecture of its Engine is appropriately biomorphic. Jellyfish are radially symmetric, Aquapod is radially symmetric. Where a jellyfish generates power from food caught in its tentacles, HM7 generates power from its tentacle-like automatic winding rotor.
Where jellyfish have a radially symmetric ring of neurons for a brain, Aquapod has radially symmetric rings displaying hours and minutes.
Where jellyfish have a hood or bell on top, HM7 Aquapod has an imposing flying tourbillon regulating the power generated by the rotor, and transforming it into the display of time.
Horological Machine No.7 is not a dive watch!
Horological Machine No.7 is “only” waterproof up to 50 meters. But MB&F added the one element that all serious aquatic watches possess: An unidirectional rotating bezel. However, unlike every other dive watch on the planet, Aquapod’s bezel isn’t attached to the case, but floats apart like a life buoy 🙂
And, like many jellyfish, HM7 glows in the dark. It glows where you would expect it to – on the hour and minute numerals – but also around the inside of the movement, to light up that flying tourbillon at night… and in addition, along the tentacle-like winding rotor so that its operation, too, can be appreciated in the dark.
Let us start right away with official pictures of Aquapod. On page 2 I pamper you with a movie and a lot of cool pictures I took from Aquapod. On page 3 you will be able to discover the technical data of Aquapod.
