In 18-karat white gold, it boasts a frosted finish associated with antique pocket watches — a technique executed completely by hand.

The Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition “Antoine De Saint Exupéry” is packed with technical highlights from Swiss watchmaker IWC. The mechanically programmed perpetual calendar shows not only the lunar cycles but also the seconds, minutes, hours, date, day, month and year in four digits. It takes into account the different lengths of the months and all the leap years in the Gregorian calendar until 2100.

The ample three-day power reserve, the two-way second hand that can be stopped to adjust the hour and the bi-directional date change compliment its remarkable practicality.

mb&f

After spending decades learning the rules of watchmaking at legacy manufacturers like Jaeger LeCoultre and Harry Winston Rare Timepieces, Maximilian Büsser broke away in 2005 to start his own company.

MB&F (Maximilian Büsser & Friends) is an artistic concept laboratory based on a simple idea: assembling collectives of independent watchmaking professionals to develop radical horological masterpieces.

Eiseman Jewels sat down with Büsser to talk entrepreneurial spirit, high-end horology and what it means to join the MB&F Tribe.

Tell us a little about how MB&F came to be. Was there one pivotal event thatpushed you to start the company? 

For me, MB&F was a life decision, not a business decision. Watchmaking saved my life. It’s given me a purpose and a surrogate family. I did not create MB&F thinking it would flourish. I created it to be proud of something, even if it wasn’t successful. The company started with just me working alone in my flat for two years without a salary, having poured every cent I had into it.

Today, it’s a small manufacturer made up of 23 people. Over the last 12 years, MB&F has been an incredible entrepreneurial and creative adventure. During that time, we have created 14 fully new calibers and changed our industry.  

What inspires MB&F?mb&f

For us, watchmaking is an art that demands experimentation and pushes us out of our creative comfort zone. We deconstruct stunning traditional watchmaking and reconstruct it into pieces of kinetic art, which also happen to give time. Giving time is not the purpose — the sculpture and the story that gave it life is.

MB&F is not a company — it is a philosophy. The machines we create are only the result, not the objective.

What is one thing we may not know about you or MB&F?

I was a kid who didn’t fit in, and I suffered a lot because of it. Many years later, I not only discovered that it is OK to not fit in, but I actually made a life out of it. There’s also the fact that we try to help all the artists we curate at our M.A.D. Galleries.

What is one word you would use to describe MB&F’s creations?

Soulful.

How would you describe the difference between the Horological Machines and Legacy Machines?

mb&fThe creative processes behind both lines are totally different. Horological Machines are a free-thinking exploration of my childhood and what made me emotional along my fifty years. They are creatively raw, and come from the gut.

Legacy Machines, on the other hand, derive from a completely intellectual process. They are a tribute to the great master watchmakers who, between 1720 and 1870, created virtually every “complication” we know today. They were the giants, the real icons. With Legacy, I wanted to revisit the elegance and subtlety of their genius with a 3-D, 21st-century twist.

What makes MB&F different from other manufacturers?

I feel like just about everything makes us different, from concept to philosophy to business model. The results are creations like no other.

Any favorite pieces in the current collection?

mb&fAs I create for myself, every piece is my ideal piece — at the time of creation. And then I move on to the next. The next one is always what gives me an adrenaline rush. Watchmaking is a very frustrating world in that every new movement takes between three and four years to come to completion, and so we are working at any given time on four to five completely different concepts and calibers, going from one to another on a daily basis.  

When designing pieces, who do you envision wearing them? Do they have a certain style or life?

I create solely for myself. And more often than not, I am terrified that no one will like, buy, or want to wear what we have spent years and millions of dollars creating! I like to think that anguish is an important part of the creative process. 

When a customer purchases an MB&F machine, they don’t just get a new horological masterpiece — they join a tribe. What is the significance behind MB&F owners joining the Tribe?

mb&f

Our creations are extremely polarizing. Over the years, we’ve noticed that our clients all over the world — whatever their culture, language, religion or upbringing — actually resemble each other quite a lot.

By registering their new timepiece on the MB&F website, our clients become part of the Tribe. Not only do they benefit from an extra two-year warranty, but they get all of the insider news we share only with our clients and opportunities to meet up with other Tribe members, if they wish. This includes invitations to our events including Baselworld and Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH).

You can now peruse a stunning selection of MB&F creations at Eiseman Jewels in NorthPark Center in Dallas, the manufacturers’ only Texas retailer.

For the Groom from the Bride

Cufflinks are to a groom’s wedding day attire as shoes are to a bride’s gown. Although not seen by many, but they’re an important accent to the overall look. They add an element of elegance, so make sure the cufflinks you choose for your groom are beautiful ones. Have them engraved with your initials and wedding date, they’ll become a special gift he’ll wear on the big day and for years to come.

Jewelry is always the answer, and your wedding day is no different. A strand of pearls, diamond or pearl earrings — they all make for beautiful, thoughtful wedding day gifts for your bride. If you’d like her to wear her gift on the big day, be sure to get some input from her mom or maid of honor, as she may have already planned out her bridal accessories.

Your wedding is the perfect chance to help your boys graduate from disposable ballpoints to a classic fountain pen. A great writing instrument will not only keep the memory of your wedding day alive, but it will also get years and years of use. You can even mix styles to match each groomsman’s taste. Metallic money clips also make excellent groomsmen gifts, that can be personalized with engraved with initials or a favorite quote.
