The new auction record was set by a limited edition watch, Simplicity, made by the independent Swiss watchmaker Philippe Dufour…
230.000 DOLLARS MB&F WATCH
MB & F is a brand known for its strange and unique creations - and this very exclusive limited edition HM6 Space Pirate clock is completely consistent with the description.
This design is the work of Maximilian Busser, who has been working for some time on a series of horological machines that were found in a large number of clocks, and the last one is located in HM6. Space Pirate watch is inspired by something which astonished Busser when he was a child - manga story Mr.Future, which is about space pirates. This idea seems to have followed him ever since.
This intriguing watch has a central tourbillion and four spheres which reveal the inner mechanism. Two spheres show the time, while others show mobile mechanics of the watch. Further, the central crystal also gives you the opportunity to peek into the bowels of the horological miracle. It can be closed with metal lids. In some way, it is reminiscent of a space pirate who winks at you from your watch.
Price for this exclusive and limited edition MB&F HM6 Space Pirate watch which will be produced in only 50 pieces is $ 230,000.
