Coming from the wetlands of the famous watchmaking firm, Maximilian Büsser & Friends (MB&F), this “Frog” needs no pond. Well, MB&F has long ago introduced the world to the radical concepts of three-dimensional kinetic sculpture as timekeeping machines, but this HM3 “Frog” watch brings a sense of awe and playfulness into high-end watchmaking. Featuring two sapphire crystal domes, made in solid aluminum, to indicate hours and minutes, the watch makes use of a new gear train to tell the time in a playful manner. The hour dome of the Frog, instead of 24-hour revolution, rotates in 12 hours that also drives the massive date wheel. Enclosed in a high-tech titanium case, the N°3 Frog also touts a distinctive clover-head white gold screws and an engraved arrow to read over-sized date. Available in only 32 units this year, the Frog will be a limited edition of 12 pieces in black titanium (with green gold rotor) and 20 pieces of a non-limited titanium version (with blue gold rotor).
