A catalogue raisonné is a comprehensive, annotated listing of all the known works of an artist that includes all the details of each work. Relatively common in the art world, it had never been done for a watch brand; a world first in the watchmaking industry!
The MB&F Catalogue Raisonné is published by renowned publishing house Editions de La Martinière and distributed by Abrams. It begins with 30 pages about the genesis and history of MB&F written by journalist and watch expert Suzanne Wong. The book is then divided into chapters, documenting the Horological Machines, Legacy Machines, and Co-creations that have all been meticulously researched and documented by watch expert William Massena, working closely with the MB&F team.
