To celebrate the opening of the world’s first store, MB & F has released a limited edition of HM3 Fire Frog-a limited edition of ten worldwide. The naming of the model is a dazzling color interlaced by the complex case of 18K rose gold and the automatic dial of 22K rose gold; the two semi-circular dials protruding like frog eyes plus the transparent mirror are this model The biggest feature is also an indication of hours and minutes. The HM3 Fire Frog has a gorgeous rose gold case that makes it the perfect watch to light up the scene when the MB & F Beijing store opens.
The HM3 Fire Frog is a limited edition of only 10 pieces in the world, especially for the opening of MB & F’s first store in Beijing. Comes in eye-catching color.
The model is equipped with a complex movement designed by watchmaker Jean-Marc Wiederrecht. The bright automatic dial is placed on the front of the dial, and the periphery is a large digital date dial. In addition to the two semi-circular transparent mirrors that protrude the dial, in addition to the biggest feature of the watch, it is also an hour and minute indicator.
Real-world amphibian frogs have prominent eyes, allowing them to see scenes in different directions without turning their heads. The HM3 Frog’s semi-circular hour and minute dials have a similar effect, although the significance on this watch has become that the wearer can easily read the time without turning his wrist.
The hour and minute semi-circular turntable is based on the optimal strength-to-weight ratio. It is delicately made from an entire aluminum alloy. Its weight is slightly higher than 0.5 grams, and it is ground from the outside to the end. The millimeter-thick thickness of paper minimizes the power required for rotation.
The semi-circular sapphire crystal glass that protects these two turntables must be shaped and polished most precisely, because any imperfections may affect the magnification of the glass.
Fire Frog may have used a playful way to present time, but the perfectly tuned internal ‘engine’ yelled, but it showed a very rigorous focus on details such as hand polishing.
The HM3 Fire Frog has a gorgeous rose gold case that makes it the perfect watch to light up the scene when the MB & F Beijing store opens.
