History lesson: MB&F is an artistic and micro-engineering laboratory that designs and crafts a small series of concept watches by bringing together talented horological professionals. Founded by Maximillian Büsser, the former managing director at Harry Winston, MB&F unveiled its first watch in 2007. Ten years later, the HM7 ‘Aquapod’ was born, a timepiece that’s uniquely inspired by jellyfish — from its radially symmetric form to its tentacle-like automatic winding rotor. While not a dive watch, the HM7 is a timepiece that’s also at home in the water, possessing a unidirectional rotating bezel that floats apart, calling to mind a life buoy.



With only 50 units made, the PANERAI LAB-ID is a limited edition watch that brings together the best of the Florentine brand’s strengths. First, it features the timeless design of the Luminor 1950 collection, and secondly, is infused with a series of technological innovations that cleverly draws inspiration from its own past as it writes the future of high quality watchmaking. With brilliant development that taps into the infinite potential of carbon, this new timepiece fully boasts exceptional characteristics like a deep black dial, as well as movement that needs to lubrication.
