Part 3: Watches

May 14, 2010,07:22 AM

Most of the models from MB&F were on show, if not on display then on one of the many wrists with an MB&F machine. The number of MB&F watches in the room was extraordinary, as is the case every year.

First, the HM3 Frogs. The black with green rotor is way cooler than the white gold and blue.



The HM2 Sapphire Vision

The original HM3

The HM2

And the one that started it all, the HM1

A remarkable thing about the appeal of MB&F is that is encompasses both genders. Here are just two of the many female MB&F wearers that night.

And here are four more.

which was a shame otherwise it would have been a hall of fame gathering with one or two gatecrashers who dropped by on the way to the airport. - SJX

Part 2: Dinner

 By: SJX : May 14th, 2010-07:12
While guests ate Max stopped by at each table to interact on a more personal level. Buying a watch from an independent watchmaker is all about the person or people behind the product so this is vital....

Part 4: The end

 By: SJX : May 14th, 2010-07:40
Unfortunately I had to catch a flight so could not stay till the end but if this was anything like prior years' dinners it is certain guests stayed past dessert to mingle and talk. Above: Dr Bernard Cheong and Wong Mei Ling of The Hour Glass; Bernard was ...  

OMG ! I didn't notice Bernard's shoes !

Thanks a lot SJX for the comprehensive report. I hope to see the Frog very soon here in Paris. Fr.Xavier

Those throw backs are sick!!!

My apologies for the lack of socks...."the frog"

Then again, I wanted to be in the spirit of the Frog.

Thanks SJX [nt]

Amazing report...

 By: patrick_y : May 19th, 2010-00:06
Amazing report of an amazing event. We all know that the new FROG is going to be a fantastic watch, and personally, I look forward to seeing it in person. However, something more impressive to me at this event was the fact that there are so many ladies we...

Ridiculous collection of cars! :-)

 By: dxboon : May 14th, 2010-21:53
Wow. That's the only appropriate word here. The new Frog is cute, and I love the green rotor, but the HM2 Sapphire Vision is the HOTNESS! That watch is so cool! Thanks for all the pictures and coverage! Cheers, Daos

MB&F and fast cars go together

 By: SJX : May 17th, 2010-05:04
the owners of both are one and the same. I don't know if that indicates good taste or bad. - SJX

if only these cars were taxis

 By: amerix : May 17th, 2010-07:58
and the the taxi driver was wearing a frog but where would / should he be taking me? amerix

This watch is starting to grow on me...

 By: DonCorson : May 15th, 2010-00:07
IMHO It is definately a big improvement on the original HM3, which doesn't talk to me at all. It looks like it was a great event. Don

Same here

 By: SJX : May 17th, 2010-05:02
when I first saw the Frog during SIHH I thought it looked ridiculous. But now the black one with a green rotor is attractive in an unorthodox way. - SJX

The Frog is cute...

 By: fernando : May 15th, 2010-20:38
and so much more legible than the original HM3 which was my one gripe with the piece.Congrats to Max for another fine presentation & thanks for the post SJX. The HM1 continues to be the standard bearer - for me anyway. cheers fernando

Great report SJX! I saw the HM no3 yesterday

 By: Mech : May 22nd, 2010-01:13
at the event but I didn't have the time to take a closer look and I'm starting to pay attention to this collection, I hope they're not made of steel ??!! After hearing what Bernard said yesterday on the Gold vs Steel, CEO not taking bus thingy hahahahaha ... 

No steel

MB&F only makes watches in gold. - SJX
