Introducing The New MB&F HM7 Aquapod Green/Titanium Watch, Inspired by Jellyfish

MB&F HM7 Aquapod
Inspired by jelly fish, the newest MB&F HM7 Aquapod is crafted in titanium with Green bezel.

 

Today, we are happy to introduce MB&F fans to the newest HM7 Aquapod watch — clad in green and looking mean. Indeed, after the two launch editions last year – one in 18-karat 5N rose gold with a black bezel and the beloved titanium version with a blue bezel — MB&F now unveils a second titanium HM7 Aquapod with a green sapphire crystal bezel, at a price of $108,000.

Turning to water — or more specifically — jellyfish for inspiration, MB&F reached its tentacles into the deep blue sea when it started work a few years ago on the Horological Machine No.7, Aquapod. The first of its kind — with a central flying tourbillon within the vertical movement — was released last year to much acclaim. While the rose gold and black model was a hit, the titanium and blue version — with colors reminiscent of the oceans — stole the limelight. Now, the newest model — with a bold green sapphire crystal unidirectional bezel that floats outside of the case — is sure to create waves, especially since only 50 will be made.

As per MB&F — because, honestly, they say it best: “Jellyfish are radially symmetric, Aquapod is radially symmetric. Where a jellyfish generates power from food caught in its tentacles, HM7 generates power from its tentacle-like automatic winding rotor… Where jellyfish have a hood or bell on top, HM7 Aquapod has an imposing flying tourbillon regulating the power generated by the rotor, and transforming it into the display of time… And, like many jellyfish, HM7 glows in the dark. It glows where you would expect it to – on the hour and minute numerals – but also around the inside of the movement, to light up that flying tourbillon at night.”
