MB&F HM2 In White Gold & Titanium
The new creations from MB&F are always some of the most hotly anticipated and most buzzed about watches to be released each year, and understandably so. But sometimes it's nice to look back a little too, so today we go hands-on with an older MB&F that has already become a classic of modern haute horology, the HM2.
Jump-hour And Retrograde Minutes
Though it might not look it at first, the HM2 is an extremely straightforward watch. On the left you have a retrograde date and dual moonphase indicator, while on the right you have a jump-hour disk and retrograde minutes. Not too complicated, right? And because of the layout, assuming you wear your watch on the left hand, the time is always readable outside your cuff, while a small flick of the wrist gives you access to the date and moonphase.
Complex, 450 part movement
While the HM2 comes in a number of metal/ceramic/sapphire combinations, the one we've got here is one of 125 in a mix of 18k white gold and titanium. Inside the HM2 is a complex 450 part automtaic movement powered by a Girard-Perregaux base. You can catch a glimpse of the signature rotor through a small sapphire window on the back, surrounded by the architectural lug system.
We could go on and on about this watch, but honestly the photos speak volumes themselves. For more, visit MB&F online.
