SIHH 2017: MB&F - Horological Machine No.7 Aquapod

Unveiled today at SIHH 2017, the latest Horological Machine from MB&F is inspired to the sea world and, in particular, to the radially symmetric design of jellyfishes.


Entirely developed in house, the engine - or the brain, in this case - of the Horological Machine No.7 Aquapod has a concentric architecture with, from bottom to top, the winding rotor, mainspring barrel, hour and minute indications, and flying tourbillon, all of them arranged around the central axis.



The wearer can enjoy the continually rotating flying tourbillon regulator at the very top of the movement, while three panels of AGT Ultra (Ambient Glow Technology) lume around the inside of the movement illuminate the tourbillon for maximum appreciation by night.



Comprised of 303 components, this unique movement beats at a frequency of 18,000 vibrations per hour (2.5 Hz) with a power reserve of 72 hours.


The hours and minutes are displayed around the periphery of the movement. The two large time display rings are supported by ceramic ball bearings which optimize rotation thanks to a very low coefficient of friction.


The hour and minute numerals and markers have been hand-painted in Super-LumiNova, making them legible by night. They are hand-painted, because it is impossible to print neatly on such complexly-curved components.



The winding rotor’s 'tentacles' are machined from a solid block of titanium. Their curved, three-dimensional nature is a manufacturing challenge, both for machining and for finishing, which alternates between polished and satin-finished sections. Underneath the lightweight tentacles, a platinum mass ensures powerful and efficient winding.


The 53.8 mm × 21.3 mm case of the HM7 Aquapod is basically a three-dimensional sandwich comprising two hemispheres of high-domed sapphire crystal on either side of a metal case band.


The unidirectional ceramic bezel floats outside this case with two large crowns located between the two structures: the one on the left is for winding the movement (if necessary) and the crown on the right is for setting the time.

To create the eye-catching, curved ceramic bezel, the numerals and markers were first engraved in the ceramic using a laser, after which the engraved sections were filled with metallized titanium. The whole ring was then polished to a high gloss.


The strap in engraved aircraft-grade rubber with folding buckle matching the case material highlights the casual nature of the watch.


The Horological Machine No.7 Aquapod launches in 33 pieces in grade 5 titanium with blue bezel, and 66 pieces in 18K red gold with black bezel – both with blue luminescent details.

Prices: Swiss Francs 98,000 plus tax for the titanium version and Swiss Francs 118,000 plus tax for the red gold. mbandf.com
