Inspired by the automotive industry, Maximilian Büsser &. Friends has once again pushed the boundaries of horological innovation with their latest creation, the HM8 Mark 2. Housed in a redesigned case measuring 47 x 41.5mm, meticulously crafted from Grade 5 titanium , the body panels come in a choice of white or British racing green CarbonMacrolon that have a matt finish on the top and a high polish on the sides. CarbonMacrolon is a remarkable composite material, consisting of a polymer matrix expertly injected with carbon nanotubes, with an impressive level of strength that rivals that of steel.
At the heart of the HM8 Mark 2 lies a meticulously crafted MB&F creation consisting of 247 components, developed entirely in-house, and powered by a Girard-Perregaux base movement, offering 42 hours of power reserve.
A surprising design choice is found in the HM8 Mark 2 as the hour and minute discs are uniquely positioned horizontally.
Priced at $78,000, the British green variant is limited to just 33 pieces, the white body panel version will be available as part of the regular production lineup, ensuring wider accessibility.
