Horological Machine Nº11 Architect Red Gold
Introducing the Horological Machine Nº11 Architect, inspired by Le Corbusier's house-as-machine concept. MB&F's creation fuses architecture and watchmaking to create an experiential piece, featuring grey tones of steel and concrete.
Each room in this horological house has its purpose: the time room displays hours and minutes with a unique design; the power reserve room shows the remaining energy; a thermometer room for temperature readings; and a final space for time-setting. The HM11's versatility allows for different display orientations, enhancing its functionality.
Its design is characterized by organic forms and a tourbillon resembling a house's heart. The four-room watch displays hours and minutes, energy, temperature and time setting.
The HM11's titanium case, sapphire crystal and 96-hour power reserve demonstrate mechanical excellence. Available in blue or red gold dial plate, each limited to 25 pieces, this statement piece showcases architectural and engineering innovation.

Why we love it
The Horological Machine Nº11 Architect for its masterful fusion of avant-garde architecture and sophisticated horology, epitomized by its innovative design that draws inspiration from the organic, humanistic architectural forms of the 1960s, and its intricate, in-house developed movement featuring a central flying tourbillon under a double-domed sapphire roof, all encased in a meticulously crafted titanium structure, which together create not just a timepiece but a wearable piece of kinetic art, resonating with those who appreciate the confluence of artistic vision and technical prowess.
