HMX Black Badger watch

Posted by kamal on July 23rd, 2016

For MB&F's Performance Art collection, Canadian designer James Thompson has reinterpreted two MB&F Machines: HMX, first launched in 2015 for MB&F’s 10th Anniversary, and Starfleet Machine, MB&F’s first table clock, which was created with L’Epée 1839. Featured here is the HMX Black Badger for which Thompson redesigned the "rocker cover" of HMX's Engine, visible under the supercar-like sapphire crystal cover, milled from his signature solid blocks of brightly coloured, high-efficiency lume. While the colours —

Radar Green, Phantom Blue, and Purple Reign — are eye-catching by day, it's when the sun goes down that they really come out to party. The long-lasting glow emitted by the high efficiency lume irradiates the HMX Engine compartment in an ethereal bath of light. HMX displays bi-directional jumping hours and trailing minutes. Light streaming through the transparent engine cover both illuminates the top of HMX’s Engine by day, and by night the brightly glowing lume provides its own colourful backlight to the time display.
