That you all for popping in to check out this week’s Watch Video Rewind, where we bring you videos on watch related topis we feel are of interest. In yesterday’s Watching the Web, I pointed you toward Monochrome’s retrospective look MB&F’s wrist watch collection. Today, I am going to follow the MB&F rabbit hoe a little deeper with a look at their clocks as well.
The Starfleet Machine Clock is one that always leaps to mind whenever I try and describe the band’s offering to friends who are not into watches. I was never a fan of Deep Space 9, but there is something just so cool about this clock.
The WatchesTV has a nice interview with Robot Max Büsser, founder of MB&F about Melchior, the clock robot that the brand introduced at Basal last year. Büsser really projects his personality in the interview, giving you insight into why the company makes such crazy designs.
This year at SIHH, MB&F followed up Melchior with Sherman, another little robot shaped clock with a movement fora brain.
Finally, let’s not let the digital world go untouched, with MB&F. When a fan of the brand discovered a cache of Nixie bulbs in a Bulgarian military depot, a collaboration came together between MB&F and an industrial artist to create a set of very special Nixie clocks.
That’s it for this week’s edition of Watch Video Rewind. If you stumble across any interesting watch (or time) related videos out there, or if you make your own Watch Story, drop us a line. If we end up using in the watch video rewind from your suggestion, we’ll be sure to tip our hats (electronically, if not literally) in your general direction.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
