MB&F HM6 Alien Nation Watch

MB&F HM6 Alien Nation Watch

The MB&F HM6 Alien Nation is actually the third watch from the Geneva-based high-end producer of horological machines to feature small hand-sculpted gold figurines in the watch. This began in 2011 with a one-of-a-kind timepiece made for a charity auction with the MB&F HM4 Only Watch (hands-on here) . Later, MB&F produced the limited edition Legacy Machine 1 (LM1) Xia Hang watch with an alien-style figurine which served to replace the standard power reserve indicator (hands-on here) . Thus, the HM6 Alien Nation is in good company, even if the concept isn't totally original for MB&F, or if the brand produced any good story around "why are we making this watch?" Other companies such as Romain Jerome have produced watches with little aliens on the dial , so there is a market for this. Though I think to make them as classy as possible, these items require a rich story behind them.
