Maximilian Büsser, the mastermind behind the rule-breaking HM1, recently offered me the rare privilege to have first look in person at his new child, the Horological Machine No.2, before it went public. Since going public, it's been far and wide in the blogosphere, but I think it's too amazing to not put on CH.
With four dials—Jumping Hours, Concentric Retrograde Minutes, Retrograde Date and Bi-Hemisphere Moon Phase—the HM2 takes time-telling to a new level. Personally, I think he just pulled it out of an antique alien submarine control panel and put a strap on it. Check out more pics and the full story on Watchismo.
