HM3 Poison Dart Frog watch is inspired by the very surprising yellow-banded poison frog, limited to 10 pieces.
The amphibian yellow belt poison dart frog is one of the most toxic species. Its skin color is bright. It hides in the tropical rain forest with yellow and black peculiar stripes. Similarly, the high-tech zirconium watch of the Poison Dart Frog The shell is also camouflaged with a smooth black PVD coating. The black case contrasts with the vivid semi-circular dial-the dial is set against an oversized date dial-on top of a complication movement designed by watchmaker Jean-Marc Wiederrecht.
Real-world amphibian frogs have prominent eyes, allowing them to see scenes in different directions without turning their heads. Poison Dart Frog’s semi-circular hour and minute dials have a similar effect, although the significance on this watch has become that the wearer can easily read the time without turning his wrist.
This size and shape of the semi-circular turntable presents many technical challenges for MB & F. The semi-circular hour and minute turntable is made from a single piece of aluminum metal after the machine obtains its optimal strength-to-weight ratio. Its weight is only 0.5 grams, and it is pressed from the outside to the inside. It has a thickness of 0.28 mm like a piece of paper, which minimizes the power required for rotation.
Even the production of external semi-circular sapphire crystals requires extremely high precision, and only advanced industrial processes can achieve this. This is because any slight imperfection may affect the magnification effect of the sapphire crystal, so the appearance and polishing treatment must be completely consistent.
HM3 Poison Dart Frog may use a compelling smile to present time, but the internal ‘engine’ designed by watchmaker Jean-Marc Wiederrecht is used for details such as manual polishing and precise adjustment. It is serious and meticulous.
HM3 Poison Dart Frog is a limited edition watch for The Hour Glass, limited to 10 pieces.
