Designed for this year’s Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy charity event, MB&F has redone its HM8 watch. The HM8 ultimately draws inspiration from the Can-Am racing series of the 1960s, here focusing in on the joys of childhood.
This particular HM8 then boasts an eye-catching illustration by Cassandra Legendre, a 15-year-old student based in Madrid, engraved on the sapphire crystal pane covering the engine. The drawing in turn hones in on the aforementioned joys of childhood, including a robot, jet plane, toy car, jellyfish, ice cream cone, football, sunglasses and video game controller.
The timepiece’s transparent cover, which originally welcomed the MB&F logo, now notes a smiley face, while the opposite end of the illustrated pane boasts a white-gold elephant, referencing the animals that are largely found in kid’s literature.
The auction for this insane watch is scheduled for November 11 in Geneva, Switzerland, again aiding Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a genetic disorder characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness.
