MB&F Certified Pre-Owned

HM6 'Space Pirate' Ti

First launched in 2014, HM6 Space Pirate's biomorphic case is all curves and spheres, capped top and bottom by transparent sapphire crystal domes. Up forward, two spheres rotate vertically, displaying hours and minutes. Back aft, the twin turbines spin, regulating the automatic winding system.

The transparent cupola on top offers a tantalizing glimpse into the 60-second flying tourbillon. The sapphire crystal portal on the back reveals more of the 475 finely finished components making up the highly complex movement.

This inaugural edition in grade 5 titanium was limited to 50 pieces and it is nearly impossible to find today.

As you would expect, our curated MB&F Certified Pre-Owned timepieces go through a full check-up: at our workshop in Geneva, our own watchmakers clean, polish, check water resistance, movement functions, time regulation… If necessary, we restore using our own original parts. And we ship the piece to you anywhere in the world, free of charge.

Description

The initial sparks of inspiration for HM6 came from a 1970s and 80s Japanese anime TV series which aired on French TV as "Capitaine Flam", featuring the eponymous captain and his improbably bulbous spaceship. Every aspect of the HM6 engine is constructed to intersect neatly with this retro-modernist take on space travel and technology, from the sleek whirling turbines with curved fins to the cinematic flying tourbillon with its manually operable shutters. The signature MB&F battle-axe appears in two places in the HM6 engine: in single-headed form for the rotor, and double-headed for the upper tourbillon cage.

The Creator

Maximilian Büsser and Friends

After decades confirming to the rules of corporate watchmaking, Max Büsser broke the chains and started a rebellion in 2005; a rebellion called MB&F - Maximilian Büsser & Friends.

MB&F is an artistic concept laboratory based around a simple idea: to assemble collectives of independant watchmaking professionals to develop radical watches - Horological or Legacy Machines. By nurturing teams of talented individuals, harnessing their passion and creativity and crediting each person's essential role, MB&F uses their synergy to become much greater than the sum of its parts. Respecting tradition, but never constrained by it, MB&F reinterprets traditional, high-quality watchmaking into three-dimensional kinetic sculptures.
