The jellyfish-inspired Machine made us more nervous than usual. The aquatic theme was new for us, after our previous spaceships, aircraft and supercars. The size of the watch was impressive to say the least, with a diameter of 53.8mm. And yes, despite the obvious tribute to diving watches with its unidirectional rotating bezel, the Aquapod was technically not a diving watch.
15 months later, the success of the Aquapod continues to surprise us. The HM7 was launched in two editions; of the red gold edition, limited to 66 pieces, we’ve delivered the first 45 to our retailers – and to the best of our knowledge, only 3 or 4 have not found their way yet to a collector’s wrist. The titanium edition, recognizable thanks to a bold blue bezel and limited to only 33 pieces, is sold out.
Time to announce a new titanium edition, with a very special green bezel made possible thanks to a sapphire crystal insert, along with matching green luminescent details. Inside the grade 5 titanium and sapphire crystal case, the resolutely unconventional HM7 caliber adopts the same concentric, vertical structure as a jellyfish; the tentacle-like winding rotor providing power to the automatic movement, regulated by a 60-second flying tourbillon.
