Swiss luxury timepiece designer MB&F is not new to designing avant-garde horological designs for their renown timepieces. Their most recent rendition dubbed ‘Bulldog’ is actually inspired by the animal itself.
Available in both titanium or rose gold, the new timepiece features an elongated case, its four lugs wrapping around its laterals imitating the legs of the dog. A domed sapphire crystal at the lower end forms the head of the animal, in which two separate “eyes” rotate to indicate the hours and minutes. It even features a jaw-like mechanism on the bottom of the watch which cleverly acts as a power-reserve scale, opening wide when it’s charged and closing completely once it depletes. Movement-wise, it holds an in-house manual winding movement operating at 18,000 vibrations per hour with a 45 hour power reserve, intricately constructed with a whopping 301 components. Other features include a flying balance wheel, 50m water-resistance and SuperLuminova applied hands and markers.
For those interested in the MB&F HM10 Bulldog, it’s now available for $120,000 USD. Head over to the brand’s website to learn more now.
