Maximilian Busser & Friends (MB&F) has revealed his latest master timepiece, the Horological Machine No. 3 Frog, a whimsical twist on the HM3.
The time is displayed by two rotating domes underneath a pair of sapphire crystals that resemble a frog’s eyes.
The protruding eyes of the (amphibian) frog enable it to see in many directions without having to turn its head.
On the new HM3, the hour and minute indicators are raised domes that, like the frog, can give their owner a wider view of the time without having to twist a wrist.
