Buying watches of MB&F and Sarpaneva Aspire the Moon with New Horological Machine for them Finnish independent watchmaker Stepan Sarpaneva has joined MB&F’s growing circle of “friends,” collaborating with MB&F founder Max Büsser to develop the latest MB&F “horological machine,” referred to as the HM3 MoonMachine. Designed around the platform of MB&F’s unconventional htReplica Cartier Rotonde“Frog” model, it features a fully new moon-phase complication created by Sarpaneva. Sarpaneva, who caused brands such as Piaget and Parmigiani, along with watchmakers like Vianney Halter and Christophe Claret, before commencing his own brand in 2003, has been known for three signature themes: moon-phase indicators with distinctive, expressive “faces,” according to his very own face, engraved for the moon; the application of stars and constellations in the northern sky of his native Finland; and also the utilization of a crenellated case shape which he is the term for as “Korona.” Many of these elements can be found inside new model Replica Cartier Ballon bleu, which MB&F (which represents Max Büsser and Friends) has designated as part of its “Performance Art” series, in which outside watchmakers and designers modify existing MB&F watches. Two rotating moons, with Sarpaneva’s hand-finished faces, infiltrate an aperture that is in the shape of the Korona case to indicate the phase of the moon. The northern star pattern is represented on a deep blue field that's actually a multi-layered, 22k-gold winding rotor which has a blue PVD treatment; the celebs are laser-pierced Replica Cartier Calibre with the rotor and enable light to mirror from your movement underneath. The movement is produced by Jean-Marc Wiederrecht and Nicolas Stalder of Agenhor, who radically altered the Girard-Perregaux base caliber, and modified by Sarpaneva using the moon-phase complication. MB&F and Sarpaneva find the Frog case for this piece with the large, rotor-shaped dial opening that allows an expansive view on the movement (or, in cases like this, nowhere, star-dappled rotor that overlaps it). The other hallmarks with the Frog case would be the bulbous, rotating aluminum domes, included in domed sapphire crystals, that indicate the amount of time (about the dome marked 1 through 12) and minutes (around the one marked 1 though 60). Each dome is machined from solid aluminum to your wall thickness of the minuscule .28 mm and also the semi-spherical sapphire crystals also need to be meticulously machined, because any imperfection affects the legibility in the numerals on the domes. Another area where the MoonMachine differs from the Frog is the fact its domes are perpendicular, in lieu of parallel, to the wrist. Also, the designers was required to come up with a completely new gear train for the reason that hours dome from the HM3 produces a 24-hour revolution as opposed to the 12-hour revolution from the Frog.
