In the current fiercely competitive boutique high-end watch market, few independent brands can get the attention of enthusiasts and industry insiders like cheap MB&F. Since 2005, avant-garde brands have spent time using the playful Flash Gordon-style retro-futuristic streamline concept Dramatically reinterpret the basic form of the watch, and this innovative spirit shines most in its anthropomorphic design series. In the initial announcement of the Only Watch 2021 charity auction in July 2021, MB&F announced its latest animal-themed work HM10 Panda through a series of watercolor illustrations. As the event approaches, MB&F released full details about this interesting one-of-a-kind version, as well as a bright monochrome that is different from the previous Horological Machine series. The unique work MB&F HM10 Panda is a streamlined and cute improvisation of one of the brand’s most adventurous products recently released, using new finishing techniques and dedicated to raising funds for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
The case width of MB&F HM10 Panda is 45 mm, the width between the lugs and the lugs is 54 mm, and its exaggerated dome sapphire crystal and the highest point thickness of the back cover is 24 mm. The case of MB&F HM10 Panda should Provides excellent performance on the wrist. Not only size, HM10 Panda’s unique asymmetrical sci-fi design makes it miles away from standard watch formulas. Based on the 2020 HM10 Bulldog design, hinged lugs, wide diamond-shaped case and super-high domed sapphire crystal together create a panda that fits the wrist. The panda’s black and white color scheme is achieved through a multi-piece case design. The top of the case is made of black and white lacquered stainless steel, while the case back and lugs are made of black PVD coated grade 5 titanium. Although the overall form is shared with HM10 Bulldog, HM10 Panda completes its panda bear shape with a spherical black ceramic “tail” decoration at 12 o’clock and a pair of round PVD coated grade 5 titanium “ears” attached to the crystal. . With such avant-garde and stylized design, MB&F HM10 Panda is obviously not designed for heavy sports use. However, the water resistance of this watch is very light, but it exceeds the expected 50 meters.
Like the case, the dial of the MB&F HM10 Panda is not like a traditional dial, but more of a deconstructive anthropomorphic design. Like the HM10 Bulldog on which it is based, the “face” of the HM10 Panda can be seen most clearly from the 6 o’clock side of the case. The elements of the main skeleton dial and the back cover come together to form an image. The chronograph is handled by a pair of black dome rotating disc hands that form the “eyes” of the HM10 Panda, and below the waistline of the case, a pair of articulated brushed and polished “jaws” form a stylized power reserve indicator— —When the HM10 Panda’s mouth is closed, the power reserve is completely empty, but when all the polished teeth are exposed, the movement is fully wound. MB&F’s signature sweeps across, the architectural floating balance bridge dominates below the main crystal, and below this smooth polished element is an almost complete brushed bridge with a small window at 6 o’clock for the escape wheel. In general, HM10 Panda’s character-centered multi-window dial design is an imaginative and playful example of the brand’s creative approach to fake luxury watches design, whose spirit first regards watchmaking as a form of sculptural art.
Inherited from HM10 Bulldog, the hand-wound HM10 movement inside MB&F HM10 Panda is as unorthodox as its case and dial design. This double crown design uses a dedicated crown built into the “back leg” of the case for winding and time setting. In addition to its stylized anthropomorphic elements, it is used on splints and splints including Côtes de Genève A set of exquisite traditional finishing techniques, polished chamfered edges and a light arabesque finish on the top of the single barrel. In terms of performance, the HM10 movement provides a 45-hour power reserve with a stable beat rate of 18,000 bph. MB&F paired this retro-futuristic design with the equally eye-catching tapered Velcro woven strap with black leather lining.
