Mr Porter inks first deal with ‘futuristic’ Swiss independent watchmaker


Mr Porter has boosted its roster of independent watch brands by teaming up with Swiss-based horological concept laboratory and watchmaker MB&F (Maximillian Büsser & Friends).

The online retailer will be offering three timepieces from the brand as part of their initial deal – two of which are limited-edition – as well as three limited edition table clocks.

Founded by Maximillian Büsser in 2005, MB&F is an artistic and micro-engineering laboratory dedicated to designing and crafting radical concept watches, clocks and mechanical art pieces.

Fiona Firth, buying director at Mr Porter, said: “We are thrilled to continue to grow our roster of independent watch brands with MB&F, a brand known for its exceptional watchmaking abilities and its futuristic approach to creating modern timepieces. We know that our customers crave exclusive and unique timepieces, so we are delighted to introduce them to our launch offer of MB&F.”
