Inside the world’s first conceptual and artistic watchmaking laboratory, from its processes to its inspirations

The MB&F adventure starts in Geneva in 2005. After 15 years working for prestigious names in the world of fine watchmaking, Maximilian Büsser launched Maximilian Büsser & Friends, the world’s very first conceptual and artistic watchmaking laboratory. MB&F designs and manufactures limited series of radical, innovative, and extraordinary watches that are always the result of a close collaboration between exceptional independent professional watchmakers and the overflowing imagination of the brand’s founder.

MB&F reinterprets horological tradition into three-dimensional mechanical sculptures that tell time. From the launch of the first Horological Machinein 2007 followed by the Legacy Machine in 2011 to the most recent creations, MB&F’s watches and clocks are genuine kinetic sculptures. Beyond a mere reasoned catalogue, MB&F: The First Fifteen Years invites the reader to dive into the process of creating and fabricating these incredible watches. Brimming with technical prowess, surrealist inspirations, and science fiction, this book is an invitation to discover the watchmaking of the future.
