Retro Watch




Lamborghini Miura, Lancia Stratos, Lotus Esprit…all fine cars to come out of the 1960s/1970s, but not the most obvious inspirations for a watch. Step in the MB&F HM5 (Horological Machine 5).

Taking influence from not only their beautiful curves and crafted dashboards, the up-market and innovative watchmakers took a big dose of inspiration¬† from the slatted rear spoilers that these classics all featured. Cortinas and Metros may have pinched the look thanks to Autoplas aftermarket items, but there’s definitely something classy about this take (which the price tag probably re-emphasises quite well!).
