MB&F has released two new versions of the Horological Machine N°9 Sapphire Vision.
Introduced in 2021, the HM9 ‘Sapphire Vision’ or HM9-SV comes with an outer hull of sapphire crystal and 18K gold.
Curved and bubbled, the three part case is perfectly sealed with a proprietary combination of patented three-dimensional gasket and high-tech compound bonding process.
HM9 Sapphire Vision initially came in four editions, each limited to only five pieces: two editions with 18K red gold frame, combined with a NAC-coated black or a PVD-coated blue engine; and two editions with 18K white gold frame, featuring a PVD-coated purple or a red gold plated engine.
In 2023, two new editions join the HM9 Sapphire Vision’s ranks; a PVD-coated blue engine with a white gold frame, and a PVD-coated green engine with a yellow gold frame.
Equipped with a manual-wound movement and displaying the time via the emblematic vertical dial display of HM9, these new models come in a limited edition of five pieces.
