The Geneva-based watch brand MB&F is out with a 10th-anniversary edition of its iconic HM3 FrogX, a timepiece that originally debuted in 2010. Inspired by the brand’s first mascot, a frog, the HM3 FrogX features the hours and minutes displayed via two thin domes milled out of aluminum that rotate beneath markers designed to resemble the lateral pupils of a frog’s eyes. The new edition features a case made of sapphire crystal, which is entirely transparent. The whole display glows in the dark thanks to its dramatic Super-LumiNova accents.
MB&F has designed a case that is neither excessively long nor wide and has tiny lugs, so it sits well on the wrist despite its seemingly large size. The domed time display also makes wearing the watch in either direction – crown up or down – possible. The HM3 FrogX is available in three limited editions of 10 pieces each, with a matching rotor, gasket, and Super-LumiNova in purple, blue, or turquoise.
