MB&F motors into SalonQP with Horological Machine N°8 Can-Am


MB&F’s newly released Horological Machine N°8 ‘Can-Am’ will be making its SalonQP debut this November as the brand’s main focus.

The Horological Machine N°8 (HM8)’s design takes its inspiration from the high-octane Can-Am race car, aiming to generate an exquisitely sculptured, high-speed wrist-borne fantasy.

HM8 Can-Am features a curvaceous yet angular case, with dual optical prisms vertically displaying bi-directional jumping hours and trailing minutes, while the distinctive battle-axe winding rotor is visible on top.


But the real star of HM8, MB&F says, is its Can-Am inspired polished ‘roll bars’ sweeping from the front of the machine down to the tapered back.

MB&F founder Maximilian Büsser, describes HM8: “I feel that this is one of the coolest pieces I’ve ever created.”

The roll bars are milled from solid blocks of grade five titanium and then hand-polished. HM8’s engine sits in full view under a nearly invisible sapphire crystal engine cover. The open centre of the blued-gold battle-axe rotor enables appreciation of the circular wave finish on the movement, while the hour and minute indication discs are visible in the corners.
