MB&F Legacy Machine 1 watch floats the balance wheel

Bizarro watch maker MB&F has launched a new model, and while the new Legacy Machine 1 (LM1) may not be as obviously eye-catching as a fey purple owl, a second-glance shows this is just as unique as their previous "horological machines."

MB&F tease with HM4 Thunderbolt timepiece

Unusual timepiece specialists MB&F haven't been resting on their laurels since unveiling the, ahem, busty HM3 Frog watch; instead they've been cooking up something even more bizarre.  The company's new Horological Machine No4 THUNDERBOLT is based on the distinctive HM4 engine MB&F outed at the Basel Fair back in March (which you can see after the cut), and now they're teasing the first profile shot of the new timepiece.
