Swiss watch manufacturer MB&F was founded in 2005 by Maximilian Büsser, and it is now known worldwide for its high quality, innovative and sometimes eccentric-looking timepieces. One of the brand’s latest masterpieces is the HM5 CarbonMacrolon watch, which was created using a new polycarbonate material that looks very similar to real metal.
The material is actually a black polycarbonate resin that features carbon nanotubes for reinforcement, and it required no less than 18 months in order to be developed. Aside from the new material, the timepiece is otherwise very similar to the regular HM5 version released by MB&F in 2012. Dubbed “On the Road Again” because of its incredible racecar-inspired appearance, this watch reminds of the Lamborghini Miura and its rear window slits or the Lamborghini Huracan, which boasted similar embellishments. Another interesting connection between the watch and racecars is that its window slits actually cover the movement or the “engine” that animates the entire piece.
Just 66 units of the MB&F HM5 CarbonMacrolon watch will ever see the light of day, each of them flaunting a price tag of $63,000.
