MB&F HM3 Poison Dart Frog Watch

MB&F HM3 Poison Dart Frog Watch

Hodinkee gives us a look at MB&F’s latest creation — the HM3 Poison Dart Frog. Their infamous HM3 Frog is comes in a black PVD-coated zirconium case against the 18k yellow gold screws and 22k yellow gold rotor. The contrasting details are magnificent but the looks run deeper. It’s designed after an actual poison dart frog, or Dendrobates Leucomela, whose black and yellow camouflage protects him in his natural habitat. Max Büsser and Co. have tweaked this beauty to perfection and with it being the very special piece it was crafted to be, there will only be ten pieces made available. Singapore’s Hour Glass will be the only retailer getting these.

We’ve got a few more shots of the HM3 Poison Dart Frog watch but be sure to head over to Hodinkee for more details.

Horological Machine No. 3 by MB&F

The HM3 by Maximilian Busser & Friends (MB&F) is quite a site.  It’s more refined than its predecessors and this one comes in two variations.  The red gold Starcruiser and white gold Widewinder with two sapphire cones rising up from the case to reveal hours and day/night indicator and the other cone for minutes – transmitted via ceramic ball bearings to laser-cut hands and visible as a drivers style watch, on the side.  Each watch shown here displays 10:45am.

The two styles are available in both red gold and white gold.  The Starcruiser has both cones on the inside of your wrist and the Sidewinder with cones vertically next to your hand.  Both are read easily without turning your wrist.
