Many things make MB&F stand out-but one of the most unique elements of mavrick’s brand appeal is their ability to transfer aesthetics, which seems like a dime. From bio-organic forms to mid-century science fiction, MB&F managed to integrate seemingly completely different nostalgic pop culture metaphors into its extremely strict clocks, while getting rid of the trap of cartoonish imitation.
However, one trend is more obvious than most of their various series, which is retroism. The idea originated from literature and creative art, and it tells the concept of the future realized using outdated technology. This style has both an imaginative past and a skeptical attitude towards the future of populism.
Since the beginning, MB&F has been playing a role in the field of backwardism, whether it is a clock or a traditional machine. However, one of their most eye-catching expressions is the HM4, which is what MB&F usually photographs on pilot watches, and it flew for the first time 10 years ago.
This watch is also called Thunderbolt. It goes against the traditional case description and relies on the rigid language of the aviation world. Two turbo-like engines are installed on the central chassis, and each engine has a display: power reserve on the left, time on the right. The entire component of this watch that won the 2010 GPHG award looks like a perfect interpretation of the golden age of aviation. This is the strong support of MB&F in Razzle Dazzle and Double Trouble versions in 2011 and HM4 in 2020 . Kittyhawk tablets are unique.
The first thing you will notice is that there are more sharks on the “body” of the men watches cheap. However, before we delve into the meaning of that smiling face, it is worth noting that the watch celebrating the 10th anniversary of HM4 is not a limited edition, but a unique piece made from MB&F’s original prototype watch.
The titanium case has been carefully modified to celebrate the iconic guard bird Curtiss P-40, a single-engine fighter and ground attack aircraft that was put into service from 1938 to 1958. Some variants are called Kittyhawk.
This name, together with the large gas nozzle under the propeller, and some creative nose art, became one of the most recognized aircraft in World War II, and eventually became a legend-even if its efficacy and service history are more controversial.
MB&F, with the help of a miniature painter, Isabelle Villa created artwork on the case. This process involves removing a few micrometers of metal from the case on the shark’s face. In the process, the vivid shark is painted and painted to make it flush with the case.
As we said in the introduction to it in the title above, we may name this watch as soon as we press release.
Movement Three-dimensional horological engine developed with Laurent Besse and Beranger Reynard. Manually wound with two mainspring barrels in parallel, with 50 jewels and 72 hours of power reserve.
