The MB&F HM4 Final Edition Watch

Having previously released the Horological Machine No. 4, a timepiece inspired from the aviation industry, back in 2010, MB&F have now come up with an update to the extraordinary HM4 series, dubbed the HM4 Final Edition.

This wristwatch boasts, as its predecessors, a design based on a plane, but it’s not an ordinary plane this we’re talking about – it is in fact a stealth fighter, the staggering F117. Just like the plane, the timepiece features square angular shapes, top notch titanium and dark-finished surfaces. The architectural base of the HM4 Final Edition is in fact the HM4 Thunderbolt, boasting with a 72 hour power reserve and the same automatic movement.

All in all, the Horological Machine No. 4 Final Edition combines a sapphire centre section which elegantly displays the intricate engine with the extremely lightweight and sturdy Black PVD titanium metal, hidden under a black cloak which allows the sunlight to dignify a nice contrast between the highly polished parts and the matte black.

Even more astonishing is the amount of time it took the engineers to machine and polish the transparent sapphire section of the case – a whopping 185 hours of work. This is the only way one can bring a solid block of opaque crystal such extraordinary visual complexity, permitting the light to mark the exquisite engine out.

No wonder the HM4 Final Edition is a limited edition piece. Only 8 units will be manufactured, each of them priced at $230,000. They will be exclusively available through five stores: MB&F’s M.A.D. Gallery in Geneva, Chronometryx in Gstaad, The Hour Glass in Singapore, Chronopassion in Paris and Westime in Los Angeles.
