There will be four unique pieces of HM6 Alien Nation, differentiated by their accent colours: green, blue, purple and turquoise. Each one is on a mission to seek out a new home on this planet.

The first two series of HM6, the Space Pirate and Sapphire Vision, were unmanned vehicles. MB&F founder Maximilian Büsser says, “I first came to love watches because I saw them as these machines that were imbued with life.”

HM6 Alien Nation is completely transparent, created from sapphire crystal with 12 separate blocks of sapphire crystal requiring up to 510 hours of machining and polishing. 

Each of the six aliens is carefully crafted in white gold by engraver Olivier Kuhn, taking up to 34 hours to complete.

The HM6 engine, visible in Alien Nation’s crystal-clear skin, is a complex, unique construction of 496 finely-finished components. It features a 60-second flying tourbillon with retractable shield. 

The different pieces of HM6 Alien Nation are distinguishable from each other, even in bright light. The water-resistance gaskets, visible at the case joints, are coloured to reflect the colour of the luminous material used within each piece. And at night, Horological Machine No. 6 Alien Nation comes to life with an intense glow from out of this world.
