Maximilian Büsser, the Founder and CEO of the Swiss watch brand MB&F, unveiled Horological Machine N°10 ‘Bulldog’ timepiece. Inspired by a loyal pup that greets a returning master, the watch is powered by a 301-component HM10 engine that is manual-winding, with a single barrel that imparts 45 hours of power reserve, indicated by the opening and shutting of external hinged jaws.
MB&F Horological Machine N°10 ‘Bulldog’ is available in two editions: grade 5 titanium body with blue “eyes”, and 18k red-gold and titanium body with black “eyes”. A rounded, compact body is joined with a generous ration of sapphire crystal. The watch features a pair of prominent aluminum time-display “eyes”, a collar studded with projections that allow the wearer to wind the mainspring or set the time and a massive jaw.
The HM10 Bulldog’s hinged jaws open and shut according to the amount of wind left in its mainspring — a fully closed mouth indicates that “Bulldog” is wound down. If the rows of shining teeth are visible, it means the “pup” is charged up with 45 hours of mainspring energy. This power-reserve indication has been carefully designed and calibrated to use the least energy possible.
Developed in-house, the manual-winding engine of the watch features the large suspended balance that hangs beneath the central dome of sapphire crystal. The sprung strap attachment “legs” allow the body to fit closely around the wrist, with the calf-leather strap fastened with either a folding buckle or Velcro system. Available in both titanium and a combination of titanium and red gold, HM10 Bulldog is constructed with highly distilled expertise in micro-mechanical engineering.
