Couldn't resist posting this, in my opinion, sublime dial-strap combo on this FB 1R from their Instagram page....

I definitely think....

as authentic and classically inspiring as it gets.... Sure, on the opposite end of something like a MB&F piece, but that's the appeal of it........

250K. oh well ...

Idiosyncratically gorgeous.

I totally agree with you. Cheers, Filip

To my eyes....

 By: InHavenPro : March 26th, 2023-16:55
it was likewise completely captivating! Thanks for looking, Filip

Mine too!

There's something about its asymmetrical minimalism.... All that negative space on the lower right really 'invites' the eyes to carefully explore the surface of the dial....

Nicely described.

As opposed....

To that central cut-out which I know you don't really care for, and I also don't think of it as particularly attractive....

IMHO all of FB are extraordinarily gorgeous πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

The only very gorgeous piece is FB2T😁

Hahahaha x))

The most gorgeous blend of idiosyncracy, intricacies and sagaciousness

 By: Gelato Monster : March 26th, 2023-22:58
One of the most amazing ever.


 By: InHavenPro : March 26th, 2023-23:27
I agree with you amigo, wasn't even aware that you were so devoutly devoted to their watch designs - how astutely described!! Cheers, Filip

If I may share my feeling

 By: Gelato Monster : March 26th, 2023-23:38
FB=Engineering Art vs MBF=Mechanical Sculpture. I dont know how to describe it. To be honest its like FB Mon-Sat Tool/Sport/Party and then MBF Leisure Sunday.

Awesome metaphor! :)))

That's admittedly why I am more biased/drawn to FB than MB&F despite loving the latter's wildly imaginative designs as well....

Agree. Not that one is better than the other

 By: Gelato Monster : March 27th, 2023-01:27
They are just different kind of beauty. Actually to be complete we need both and urwerksπŸ˜„ in this catagory

LoL, good point....

 By: InHavenPro : March 27th, 2023-01:52
Urwerk is the 'alien spaceship' wild imagination design ethos that most of us would have loved best as children (which I still am on the inside )........ Ultimately, FB is the one that we as 'reasonable adults' would wear most frequently. Thanks again for... 

Thank you😁

Thank you

Even better in real life πŸ˜‰

Looking forward to....

seeing wristshots of yours! I just recently watched a video of someone winding up a 1R - the sound of the fusee getting tightened is almost arousing LoL ........
