MB&F - Horological Machine N°9 ‘Sapphire Vision’

At the end of 2018, MB&F launched one of their most radical Horological Machines, the HM9 ‘Flow‘.

In 2021, the Geneva-based brand goes even further presenting the new HM9 ‘Sapphire Vision‘. Thanks to a a transparent sapphire crystal shell, the HM9 engine is now revealed in all its amazing details.

MB&F Horological Machine N°9 ‘Sapphire Vision’

Inspired to the lines of automotive and aviation mid-century design and somehow reminiscent of a jet engine, the HM9 ‘Sapphire Vision‘ comes in four editions, each limited to only five pieces:  two editions with 18K white gold frame, featuring a PVD-coated purple or red gold-plated engine, and two editions with 18K 5N+ red gold frame, combined with a PVD-coated blue or NAC-coated black engine.

The case is characterised by an outer hull of sapphire crystal and precious metal, curved and bubbled and precisely fitted together in three parts, sealed with a proprietary combination of patented three-dimensional gasket and high-tech compound bonding process to guarantee water resistance to 3 ATM (approximately 30 metres / 100 feet).

Two independent balances, slowly beating at the frequency of 2.5 Hz (18,000 vibrations per hour), provide two sets of chronometric data that can be translated by a differential to produce one stable averaged reading.

Conical gears turn the engine’s energy and information current through a 90° angle to feed the time display on a sapphire crystal dial, marked with Super-LumiNova for enhanced legibility in poor light environments.

On the reverse, co-axial beneath each of the balances, we find two spherical turbines that spin freely as an element of pure visual interest.
