MB&F has unveiled the sophisticated aquatic watch HM7 Aquapod that boasts the organic jellyfish-inspired design which is counter-balanced by the very mechanical horology within: a central ying tourbillon tops the concentric vertical movement architecture, with indications radiating out from the centre like ripples in a pond. Just like 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 case of HM7 Aquapod is made of two hemispheres of high-domed sapphire crystal on either side of a metal case band. The unidirectional ceramic bezel oats outside the case proper, while dual crowns are located between the two structures: the one on the left is for winding the movement and the crown on the right is for setting the time. The large crowns are ergonomically designed for ease of use, even when manipulated with wet fingers.
MB&F HM7 Aquapod timepiece features a very complex 72-hour power reserve Engine. Developed in-house with 303 components, the engine is spherically three-dimensional and all its mechanisms rotate concentrically around the centre. The curves of the high-domed sapphire crystal are mirrored in the shape of the time display rings. Where jellyfish have a hood or bell on top, HM7 has an imposing flying tourbillon regulating the power generated by the rotor.
The flying tourbillon at the very top of the movement is positioned for maximum appreciation by day, while three panels of AGT Ultra (Ambient Glow Technology) lume around the inside of the movement illuminate the tourbillon by night.
The strap in engraved aircraft-grade rubber highlights the casual nature of HM7 Aquapod, ensuring that it looks just as good with jeans and a t-shirt on land as it does with a bathing suit in the water. HM7 Aquapod launches in 33 pieces in grade 5 titanium with blue bezel, and 66 pieces in 18K 5N+ red gold with black bezel.
