MAX BUSSER, THE BIG BOSS OF MF&F TELLS ME, "On Monday 29 June 2015 , I had the honour of collecting a “Best of the Best” prize at the Red Dot gala ceremony in Essen, Germany – one of the most famous international design competitions.
"The reward went to our Horological Machine No.6 ‘Space Pirate’, one of only 81 products to obtain the highest-ranking award, among some 5’000 submissions!
In the jury’s own words, “…this wristwatch stages its own cosmos. It dissolves the boundaries of classical wristwatch design and advances it through an exciting futuristic approach. The distinctive shape of the clockwork simply fascinates and its mechanism mesmerises.
"Featuring the appearance of a friendly being from another world, this wristwatch seems to tell its own tale – a world of adventure for the beholder”.
You could say our HM6 struck gold… and by a lucky turn of events, this coincides perfectly today with the introduction of a new limited edition of Space Pirates: HM6 RT. Only 18 pieces in 18K red gold, which follow the first 50 pieces in grade 5 titanium presented last year.
As you may recall, the HM6 range will be limited to 100 movements in total.
This is not your usual “5N” red gold however. We’ve crafted this new edition from solid blocks of “5N+” red gold, and that little plus makes a big difference.
In addition to the usual gold and copper, a small amount of palladium has been added to the mix. The palladium “fixes” the copper, which otherwise has a tendency to oxidise and tarnish over time. 5N+ red gold will thus retain its colour for many years.
Inside the 5N+ red gold case, visible through no less than 10 sapphire crystals, lies the radical 475-component HM6 engine. Displaying time via revolving hour and minute spheres, it also features dual turbine regulators which act as shock absorbers for the automatic winding rotor, as well as a 60-second flying tourbillon – protected when necessary by a titanium “hyperspace shield”.
