This MB&F Legacy Machine No. 1 Xia Hang* draws upon the contemporary Chinese artist's work to integrate an innovative power reserve sculpture, and is accompanied by larger sculptures of the two forms of the power reserve. Part of a limited series of just 12 pieces, the watch is an ideal find for collectors who also have a deep appreciation for art.
How we see time
As Max Büsser says, “We’re not innovating because we want to change the world of watchmaking. We’re innovating because we want to change our own world. Once something has been done, there is absolutely no point in doing the same thing because it’s impossible to feel truly proud of it.”
What is perhaps most interesting is the shift and desire for something new in a world that is constantly seeking to reinvent itself. Büsser stresses this need for invention particularly in terms of design: “There are brands that typically come up with a great idea at one point and keep working on that idea for maybe the next 40 to 50 years, but a truly revolutionary brand is one with which every time they come up with an idea, they say ‘Ok, well, that’s done. Let’s do something different now.’”
