Never one to shy away from collaborations with exceptionally talented individuals (example being the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski) and involvement in events such as Ultra Music Festival and the 2018 FIFA Russia World Cup – the MP-08 Antikythera shows that inspiration can also come from hundreds of years ago. Shrouded in mystery, the ancient mechanism was found in a shipwreck off the shores of Antikythera and dates back to 150 BC. The Antikythera mechanism served as an astronomical calculator as well as navigational tool, since the celestial bodies were often used as a reference point in navigation. The mechanism has the oldest known complex gear mechanism and is sometimes referred to as the first analog computer ever made. The Hublot Antikythera Sunmoon MP-08 watch is a modern tribute to an ancient mechanism, and the result of a collaboration between Hublot and the Antikythera Research team. Superior to the traditional moon phase indications found on watches, the Antikythera Sun Moon shows the shape of the moon in the sky, the name of the constellation behind the Moon, as well as the time required for the Moon to pass through a constellation. The watch also shows the constellation located behind the Sun and the time required for the Sun to pass through a constellation. The movement also features a more traditional watchmaking complication in the form of a tourbillon escapement at the 6 o’clock position of the dial. The manually wound movement provides a power reserve of 85 hours. The display back shows the movement finished in matte and satin-brushed ruthenium, complete with a giant central gear made to resemble the front of the ancient mechanism. #hublot #sun #moon #moonphase #antikythera #hublotantikythera #tourbillon #watch #watches #horology #limited #hautehorology #swiss

MB&F isn't one to follow convention. The philosophy of the brand can be understood by looking at two watches, the LM Perpetual and the HM8. Unlike traditional perpetual calendars, the LM Perpetual has a default 28 days assigned to each month, adding extra days for longer months. Whereas, convention had it that by default perpetual calendars assign 31 days to each month and then subtract excess days for shorter months. The Horological Machine Number 8 on the other hand takes a different approach. Human nature has a tendency to conflate complexity with clutter. MB&F offers an alternative. Its case design is a physical representation of the saying "less is more". The staggery complexity and emotional weight of the 247 component three-dimensional horological engine is better communicated through the use of negative space, like a park in the middle of a bustling city, it allows room to breath. Part 2 celebrating iconic MB&F watches, coinciding with Maximilian Büsser's recent visit to Australia. Hosted by The Hour Glass Australia, Max was in Sydney this week sharing his thoughts and experiences on a range of topics including contemporary watchmaking, watch collecting and industrial design. @maxbusser @mbandf #horology #hautehorology #independantwatchmaking #mbandf #mbf #maxbusser #hm8 #lmperpetual #thehourglass #design #industrialdesign #negativespace #windingrotor #sapphirecase #jumpinghours #opticalprism #wotd #wotm #watchmaking #CanAm #whitegold #titanium #hm8canamwt #rollbars #watches
