After decades conforming to the rules of corporate watchmaking, Maximilian Büsser broke the chains and started a rebellion in 2005; a rebellion called MB&F – Maximilian Büsser & Friends.

MB&F is an artistic concept laboratory based around a simple idea: to assemble collectives of independent watchmaking professionals to develop radical watches - Horological or Legacy Machines. By nurturing teams of talented individuals, harnessing their passion and creativity, and crediting each person’s essential role, MB&F uses their synergy to become much greater than the sum of its parts. Respecting tradition, but never constrained by it, we reinterpret traditional, high-quality watchmaking into three-dimensional kinetic sculptures.

WE LOVE IT BECAUSE “A creative adult is a child who survived.” A dominant force in the horological world, the Swiss company MB&F is the birthchild of Maximillian Büsser, a man known for his wild creativity and love of science fiction and automobiles. Perhaps unsurprisingly, both are reflected in his radical creations – watches or three-dimensional kinetic sculptures designed to rebel against the rules of corporate watchmaking.
