Maximilian Busser & Friends unveiled its first timepiece in an exotic material, CarbonMacrolon a fancy polycarbonate resin reinforced with carbon nanotubes invented by Bayer years ago, that looks and feels like steel. In terms of size the HM5 CarbonMacrolon is measuring 51.5 mm by 49 mm and standing 22.5 mm high, identical to the earlier HM5 variants. The movement is housed in its own special container, a three-dimensional horological engine developed by Jean-François Mojon and Vincent Boucard of Chronode; with a bi-directional jumping hours and minutes displayed by reflective sapphire crystal prism. Attached to the case is a remarkably comfortable sculptured rubber strap with titanium tang buckle. Water resistant down to 30 meters, the MB&F HM5 CarbonMacrolon will come in a limited edition of only 66 pieces priced at $63,000.
