Inspired by a famous Japanese anime TV series, Captain Future, and 1970s biomorphic design, Maximilian Büsser, MB&F‘s founder, created a fantastically weird timepiece: the HM6 Space Pirate.
Like the Captain Future and his spaceship called the Comet that consisted of two spheres joined by a connecting tube, Maximilian Büsser imagined combining two such craft and the seeds of Space Pirate were planted.
While the HM6 Space Pirate‘s gentle curves and bulging “eyes” may give it the appearance of a friendly extra-terrestrial life form, the engine of the HM6 required more than three years of development.
As may be expected nearly every component and mechanism had to be developed from scratch specifically for the HM6 Space Pirate. The result speaks for itself.
In each of the four corners of HM6‘s biomorphic case is a 360° sphere, capped top and bottom by transparent sapphire crystal domes. Up forward, two semi-spherical indications rotate vertically (90° to the Engine), respectively displaying hours and minutes in large, highly legible numerals.
The HM6 Space Pirate is an extremely comfortable watch to wear, even on smaller wrists. The curved lines of the HM6 Space Pirate make it a softer, more organically shaped Machine than its predecessors.
The organic curved lines of the HM6 Space Pirate‘s case derives from an early 20th century art movement labelled “biomorphism”, in which art is modelled on the naturally occurring shapes and forms found in nature and living creatures. For instance, Biomorphic expressions can be found in The Sagrada Família church by Gaudí.
If you are a space addict, the HM6 Space Pirate is the perfect watch for you. Hurry up: the HM6 Space Pirate is a limited edition of 50 pieces in Ti-6Al-4V titanium.
The MB&F HM6 Space Pirate Watch is evocative, to say the least, but that's why you're drawn to it in the first place.
