Maximilian Büsser & Friends - The Smelling Salts of the Watch World...Wake Up and Smell The Space Pirate!

We all know there are cool watches, classic watches and collectible watches -- but then you get to the world of Horological Machines -- in a class of their own.  If that doesn't make sense to you, MB&F watches are quite honestly the Umami, that savory taste you can't quite put your finger on but you know you gotta have it. Without naming names, you very well know what watches are sweet, sour, bitter and most definitely salty!  But what you don't know, that UMAMI is the taste that doesn't get old, it only gets better with each bite!

Horological Machine No.6 - now in limited "SV" editions, in sapphire crystal combined with streamlined red gold or platinum. The sapphire crystal alone requires 350 hours of careful machining and polishing, just for a single case - the equivalent of 2 months' worth of working days...

Chronometrics Watch Collection


The minimal, contemporary and understated form shouldn’t be the final creation, it should inspire you to create.

Designs for the makers, the creatives, the creators. It’s for the life architects who shape their time and space to design their own world.

A triangle is the simplest form of a connection between 3 points. It’s the base for every three-dimensional object and therefore a starting point for every creation. It is a natural geometry and with our watches, we want to give this thought into the hands of everyone who wants to put his life in balance, wants to shape his time and create new things. It’s for everyone who likes to be creative, and has a good understanding of detail. The minimal, contemporary and understated form of THE ARCHITECT shouldn’t be the final creation, it should inspire you to create. We put a lot of effort in the watch design and try to achieve a natural balance of details and fashion by using interesting material combinations.

On most watches, the hour positions three, six, nine & twelve are presented so prominently on the watch face. But a watch is a watch, not a compass with four cardinal directions. For us, these four times of a day don’t have any particular meaning.
A day breaks up into three intervals instead. For example: Sleep – Work – Relax or Breakfast – Lunch – Dinner. Those are the times when something in our routine is changing. That’s why the breakdown into 3 parts has more natural reference to us than a breakdown into four parts like on most watch faces. Of course this can’t and shouldn’t be applied for everyone’s daily life routine. But it was the initial idea to start with for our watch face designs, and we’ll see where it goes in the future.
