By the Numbers: Medusa by MB&F

MB&F breaks it down for us.

MB&F breaks it down for us.

Maximilian Büsser, the founder of MB&F, doesn’t make watches—he crafts horological delights. In an industry with a reputation for formality and pretension, Büsser’s timekeeping masterpieces surprise and enchant by appealing to childhood memories and dreams. Enter the Medusa: Crafted in collaboration with L’Epée 1839’s clockmakers, Medusa is a jellyfish of gears and glass that can beach itself on surfaces or hover in midair, pendant-style.
