MB&F Horological Machine N.8 HM08 CAN-AM

Horological Machine

MB&F Horological Machine No 8 Can-Am from 2022 is presented with its box, outer sleeve, watch stand, wallet, instruction manual and international warranty booklet. Launched in 2016, the HM8 Can-Am follows the same basic design principles of previous Horological Machines but has its own distinctive character. The watch wears large, measuring 49mm x 51.5mm, and with its unorthodox sloped case shape, incorporates a clever articulated lug system, to help create an ergonomic fit. 

Please note, all watches that we have in Gibraltar are sent DDU via DHL express door to door delivery.

DDU = Delivery with Duty Unpaid. This means the importer / receiver of the watch is responsible to pay any Sales Tax or duties to customs or the courier company to release the goods from customs, Gibraltar is not in the EU nor the UK for Customs purposes.

Max Büsser’s ingenuity is on full display in this multifunctional machine that takes design cues from the automobile industry, since his role as orchestrator of the Harry Winston Opus series, whilst CEO Maximilian Büsser has been challenging the way watches tell time for over 20 years. His creations at MB&F have continued this experimental theme, never compromising on the quality of the watches, for the sake of design. 

The HM8 model is called the CAN AM after the Canadian American racing championships which first started in 1966, the HM8 was launched in 2016, 50 years later as a tribute to these races.

Its built like a car, with the engine visible from the front, the oil sumps from behind where the watch movement is lubricated. The engine is protected by a slab of sapphire and two titanium roll bars, the roll bars are machined out of a whole ingot of titanium it takes thousands of hours with 3D Mills and five axis to achieve the shape, then it is hand polished to perfection the HM8 has been one of the most complex designs that Max has ever done with 50 prototypes leading up to this final finish. 

 This is the third and last item in the trilogy HM5, HMX, HM8, this has been the last iteration of the project, Max originally wanted to be a car designer, he originally started with one design and then saw himself improving it and finally arrived where he wanted to be with the HM8.

The case’s foundations are constructed from 18K white gold and complemented by titanium components, including the polished “roll bars” designed to invoke the look of those found in Can-Am race cars.

Looking straight on, the wearer is greeted by the movement’s components and battle axe-shaped winding rotor rather than the time like on a conventional watch. A quick rotation of the wrist reveals this on the lateral side using automotive-inspired readouts sitting behind a magnified sapphire crystal. 

Internally, MB&F sourced a base movement from Girard-Perregaux, which has been neatly finished with Côtes de Genève across the bridges and is equipped with a 42-hour power reserve.

The HM8 is paired with a factory navy blue alligator strap crafted for MB&F by renowned leather goods producer, Camille Fournet. It’s linked to a titanium deployant clasp incorporating the watchmaker’s battle axe motif. 

When you design there is no truth there is no right or wrong there is your gut feeling that its actually right it can take days, weeks, months, years before it starts resonating that it is right, Max never stops until he feels its right and that is the design spirit of every MB&F
