I just found out that I am a horologist, a watch and clock aficionado. I can't afford to buy many of the watches and clocks that fascinate me, but I enjoy looking at them through the shop window.
Every so often, a designer comes up with a truly different looking watch. These watches by MB&F are so fancy that the company calls them "horological machines." Here are views of the three in their collection: HM3 ($74,000), HM2, and HM1.
The Web site has computer-generated renderings of the watches' innards, such as here. Other links have exploded views and animations.
The initial designs, however, were made with hand sketches, as shown by this "book" of design development called Genesis.
While I love looking at unusual watches, I prefer to wear clean designs. For seven years now, I have worn a Citizen: analog face, titanium case, solar-powered. The watch face is a solar panel; just one day in the sun powers its rechargeable battery for the next eight months.
