Introducing The MB&F HM3 MegaWind Final Edition (With Specs And Pricing)

MB&F unveils the final run of its most successful timepiece, the HM3 MegaWind Final Edition. Clad entirely in black and grey with contrasting Super-Luminova accents that glow vivid green at night, it really comes alive after dark.

With its distinctive avant-garde regulator time display, the Horological Machine No. 3 is MB&F‘s most popular timepiece, comprising a third of its total production since the brand’s founding in 2005. Based on the MegaWind, the HM3 MegaWind Final Edition is entirely dark, finished in black and grey, with green Super-Luminova that glows vividly at night.

The case is 18k white gold with a black coating, with a similar treatment for the gold battle axe shaped rotor. And the bridges of the movement have a dark grey coating, with the spacer ring around the movement is covered with Super-Luminova. In the dark the Super-Luminova flashes bright green as the rotor spins.

Super-Luminova is also painted onto the aluminium cones that indicate the time, using a tiny syringe. With the hours on the left and minute on the right, the movement was developed by Jean-Marc Wiederrecht of Agenhor, a noted movement specialist that often works with MB&F. Made in a limited edition of 25 piecees, the HM3 MegaWind Final Edition is priced at 84,000 Swiss francs before taxes.

Pre-Basel 2015: Glashütte Original Presents New Dials For PanoReserve And PanoMaticLunar (With Specs And Price)

At Baselworld Glashütte Original will reveal new dials for the PanoReserve and PanoMaticLunar – a deep blue for the steel models and black for the red gold version.

Glashütte Original will introduce two new dials for the PanoReserve and PanoMaticLunar at Baselworld 2015 next month. Both are classically handsome combinations: a deep, metallic blue for the steel timepieces, and a deep, matte black for the red gold.

Both dials are made by Glashütte Original’s own dial manufacturing facility in Pforzheim, a city near the Black Forest that was the heart of German clockmaking and jewellery starting in the 1700s. A galvanic blue dial is found on both steel watches, while the red gold models have a black dial. Both dials are paired with gilded indices to match the case colour, along with either white or red gold hands.

Featuring an oversized date display and power reserve, the PanoReserve is manually wound with a 42 hour power reserve. The movement is constructed in the style typical of Glashütte (the town, not the brand). It has a three quarter plate, screwed gold chatons and an engraved balance cock.

And the PanoMaticLunar, on the other hand, is automatic with a 42 hour power reserve and a winding weight in 21k gold. The calibre 90-02 inside also has all the quintessential features of German watches like the screwed chatons and engraved balance cock.

Both watches have 40 mm cases.

The PanoReserve and PanoMaticLunar in steel both cost €9700 or 17,900 Singapore dollars. And in rose gold €20,200 or 37,000 Singapore dollars.
