Introducing the MB&F Horological Machine Nº11 Architect. The house that Max built.
A central flying tourbillon forms the heart of the house, its quatrefoil-shaped upper bridge recalls the shape of clerestory windows in some of humanity’s greatest temples to its Creator. From this spinning core, four symmetrical volumes reach outwards, creating the four parabolic rooms of the house that is HM11 Architect.
Turn the house to access each room; the entire structure rotates on its foundations. The 90° angle of offset between each room means that you can position HM11 with one of its rooms directly facing you. This versatility in display orientation also has a practical use. Each 45° clockwise turn is signalled by a tactile click under the fingers, and delivers 72 minutes of power directly to the barrel. After 10 complete rotations, HM11 is at its maximum autonomy of 96 hours.
The time room is where you go to retrieve the hours and minutes. The next room, 90° to the left, is where the power reserve display resides. An instrument rarely seen in horological contexts (though familiar in domestic ones) is installed in the next room — a thermometer.
One last room remains, a tiny round badge engraved with the MB&F motif, set into the sapphire-crystal window. This seemingly empty space functions as the time-setting crown of HM11. Pull on the transparent module, and it opens with a click. It is the front door and key to HM11; you turn it to relocate yourself in time.
