MB&F HM4 Razzle Dazzle & Double Trouble



Luxury watchmaker MB&F released two new limited editions based on the MB&F Horological Machine No. 4 Thunderbolt, called HM4 Double Trouble and HM4 Razzle Dazzle. Hand-painted by Isabelle Villa, these out-of-this-world watches pay tribute to the “legendary WWII aircraft.” Maximilian Büsser explains: “When I was making model airplanes as a boy, they were mainly WW2 aircraft. HM4 Thunderbolt is an aviation-inspired Machine with its roots in those model plane kits, so it was only natural to start imagining what might HM4 have looked like in that era. Hand painted nose art, real rivets, vintage-look dials, authentic military leather strap and the metamorphosis of the Thunderbolt is complete.” Razzle Dazzle & Double Trouble are each limited editions of 8 pieces each .
