Following its debut at SIHH, MB&F gives us a detailed look at the MoonMachine 2, a part of the label's "Performance Art" series when an external collaborator reinterprets one of their existing pieces. For this occasion, MB&F brought back watchmaker Stepan Sarpaneva, after their joint effort in 2012.

Now, Sarpaneva has transformed the Horological Machine No.8 into the MoonMachine 2, the world’s first projected moon phase indicator. The timepiece in turn showcases a combination of mechanical movement and optical prism display system that can also found on MB&F's HM5 and HMX.

The MoonMachine 2 then welcomes a moon phase complication in addition to the jumping hours and trailing minutes. This means that when you look at the time on the lateral display, you will see a projected image of the hour, minute, and moon phase discs.

As thin as 0.07mm, the moons account for Sarpaneva's smallest ever, while other standout components include a titanium web rotor design and various korona-shaped elements.

MB&F and Stepan Sarpaneva's MoonMachine 2 arrives in three limited editions of 12 pieces each in rose gold, titanium, or black titanium.

Follow to MB&F for more on the design.

Now here's what a Supreme x Rolex collaboration could look like.
