Not long after my previous report a few weeks ago, I joined several other RedBar team members on a trip overseas to bring the gospel to the good people of London and Antwerp. We also found time to spend a couple of days with Maurice Lacroix in Zurich and at their manufacture in the Jura region, where we were fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of both their future, and ours.
We have gathered the final selection of impressive watches up for bid during the Nov. 7 Only Watch auction in Geneva. Each piece in the full collection of forty-four one-of-a-kind watches donated from prestigious watch houses will be ready for the highest bidders. This is an incredible opportunity to bid on unique watches while supporting a worthwhile cause. The auction has been organized this year by Aurel Bacs and Phillips Auctions, the Association Monégasque Contre les Myopathies (AMM) and the Monaco Yacht Show, along with all the participating watch brands, to support the Monaco Association Against Muscular Dystrophy’s mission to fund research for neuromuscular diseases and Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
All year MB&F is touting the tagline “A creative adult is a child who survived” to underpin its multiple tenth-anniversary releases. In fact just last month MB&F released the colorful race-car-influenced HMX with that sentiment engraved directly onto the watch’s 22-karat-gold rotor.
The child in Maximilian Büsser surfaces once again today as he and his like-minded friends at both MB&F and at Reuge release MusicMachine 3 (MM3), a contemporary music box that vividly recalls Imperial Fleet TIE fighters from “Star Wars.”
