Throw into the mix the stunning dial and the cost, and what you have in the new Melbourne Watch Company Collins Auto ladies and gentlemen is a micro-brand offering that subtly but surely will find its way into the hearts of watch enthusiasts and collectors.
Just like the recently released MB&F HM3 FrogX, the MB&F Horological Machine N°9 too takes horological innovation a leap forward. It’s what the Büsser and gang do best – force their way through into the depths of our minds astonishing them with mechanical art wonders.
The new Ming 27.02 is no different. It is truly loaded with outstanding features and is bound to be a valuable addition to any watch collection. It is a geometric masterpiece that masters the art of pure time-telling.
The different occasions in life, the varying outfits, like the earth won’t change to match your timepieces. But with the Melbourne Watch Company Burnley Auto Green, you have a watch that changes its aesthetics to match the context it’s being worn in.
The MB&F Horological Machine N°10 ‘Bulldog’. We looked at the Ti version that features a grade 5 titanium case with blue “eyes” hour and minute domes and a hand-stitched blue calf-leather strap with Velcro system and titanium buckle
The brand may have decided that this is the best time to put 19-series to sleep, but this family of watches is going out on the top of its game. The new MING 19.05 is a revelation in watchmaking; it sits in a higher pedigree that’s in rarified circles. And like I said, MING may be wrapping up 2020 on high note, but I am sure Mr Thein will be back with what I can only predict to be a stellar 2021.
Just like the amphibian it is named and designed after, the MB&F HM3 FrogX takes this leap of faith that there is more to the world of watchmaking than simply producing divers after divers. And it works.
