MB&F Horological Machine N°10 ‘Dark Bulldog’

MB&F has expanded the HM N°10 series by launching new ‘Dark Bulldog’ versions.

Originally introduced in 2020, Horological Machine N°10 ‘Bulldog’ celebrated the relationship between man and dog. The inauguration edition included two models. The first one has a grade 5 titanium body and blue “eyes”, and the second version features an 18K red-gold and titanium body with black “eyes”.

In 2022, HM10 Bulldog adds ‘Dark Bulldog’ versions in three colors to the collection, limited to 8 pieces each. These new models feature stainless steel black PVD cases with black, blue or red eyes.

The manual-winding engine of HM10 Bulldog was designed and developed in-house. The eye-catching balance, suspended beneath the central sapphire crystal dome and beating at 2.5Hz (18,000bph), was first appeared in Legacy Machine N°1 launched in 2011. The revolving time-telling domes of HM10 Bulldog originated in the conical hour- and minute-modules of the first Horological Machine N°3.

The MB&F HM10 engine offers 45 hours of power reserve, indicated by the opening and shutting of external hinged jaws.

The rounded, compact case measures 45mm across, 54mm from nose to tail and 24mm height. The two time-display domes (eyes) are made of colored aluminium. The sprung strap attachment “legs” of the watch allow the body to fit closely around the wrist, with the calf-leather strap fastened with either a folding buckle or Velcro system.
