42.BTSL.B : MB&F Horological Machine N°4 HM4 Final Edition


The sleek aerodynamic form of the Thunderbolt's envelope has its roots in Maximilian Büsser's childhood passion for assembling model plane kits, though none looked remotely as futuristic as these. The striking transparent sapphire section of the case requires over 185 hours of machining and polishing to transform an opaque solid block of crystal into a complex, exquisitely curved panel allowing the light to come in and the beauty of Thunderbolt's engine to stand out. Every component and form has a technical purpose; nothing is superfluous and every line and curve is in poetic harmony. Articulated lugs ensure supreme comfort. Highly legible time is a fringe benefit.

HM4 is available in titanium/sapphire; HM4 Razzle Dazzle and Double Trouble are limited editions of 8 pieces each in titanium/sapphire with hand painted nose art; HM4 RT is a limited edition of 18 pieces in 5N red gold, titanium and sapphire and the HM4 Final Edition closes the HM4 series in 2013 with a limited edition of 8 pieces in blackened titanium and sapphire.
