On the wrist, the Horological Machine No. 7 “Aquapod” felt as though it was easily the weirdest MB&F men’s replica timepiece I’d ever put on. Those who know the brand will be quick to point out the severity of that statement. Pretty much all MB&F Horological Machine (HM) timepieces are weird by design, yet mostly very comfortable on the wrist. That means in order to be “the most” visually unconventional, the HM7 needed to go that extra distance – to beat out other close contenders such as the HM1, HM2, HM3, HM4, HM5, HM6, HMX, and HM8. That is actually all of the other Horological Machine swiss watches replica online, and I have realized that each in its own way has a very unique wearing experience. With that said, the HM7’s uniqueness, to me, was the most assertive. Perhaps that is because it is the first round-shaped Horological Machine replica watch MB&F has ever produced.
Like most HM timepieces, the MB&F HM7 Aquapod is expensive, technically interesting, built with very high quality standards, and utterly polarizing. Even among the aBlogtoreplica watch team – who tend to be rather open-minded – there was mixed sentiment toward the MB&F HM7 Aquapod. That’s fine and to be expected, as very few people out there have the same level of desire for each and every MB&F replica watch that Max Busser and team produce. Though, I’ve found that the replica watches produced by the brand which are the most conservative (relatively speaking) are actually the least interesting for me. Thus, I consider myself among those people who need a high degree of “craziness” to feed my passion for what MB&F produces.
Just prior to SIHH 2017, MB&F released the Horological Machine No. 7 Aquapod replica watch and I wrote about it at length here. I don’t intend on reiterating each technical detail and fact, so if the replica watch is new to you, I suggest you click on the above link to our introductory article on the MB&F HM7 Aquapod to get acquainted with this limited edition replica watch collection. The debut versions (meaning that limited edition versions with material or cosmetic changes will come in the future) of the MB&F HM7 Aquapod are relatively numerous by MB&F standards and will come as 33 pieces in titanium and 66 pieces in 18k red gold.
When writing about the MB&F HM7 Aquapod earlier in 2017, I found it interesting (and I mentioned it then) that more versions of the MB&F HM7 Aquapod replica watch would be produced in gold versus the more “affordable” titanium. This is, after all, about as close as MB&F has come to a sport replica watch (I suppose you might argue the same about the HM5) so you’d expect wearers to value the lightness of something like titanium. Then I needed to remind myself that, no, this is indeed a $100,000 luxury product – even with the titanium case. Though still, this awesome sea creature look-alike is so dangerously close to a diving replica watch…
