Maximilian Büsser is the founder of MB&F, short for Maximilian Büsser and Friends, the creator of some of the most avant-garde and imaginative timepieces the world has seen.The format for this episode of the Revolution Watch Podcast is a little different, fitting we think, for Max Busser, who doesn't do things quite the same way as the rest of the industry.We spoke with Max and recorded an interview with him during his last visit to Hong Kong where he opened his latest MB&F M.A.D gallery, a boutique shop where he displays his timepieces amongst other mechanical art pieces.Show Notes(01:28) Launching MB&F(03:09) Independent watchmakers are more creative(06:06) Max’s biggest qualities(10:14) Bringing fans into the MB&F community(12:06) The M.A.D Galleries(17:47) Moving to Dubai(19:46) Max, the family manFollow Stephanie on Instagram @stephiphkFollow Kevin on Instagram @kevincureauFind us on the web, Instagram and FacebookHK specific sites: website, Instagram, Facebook
Christian Selmoni is a very interesting man. The Style and Heritage Director can readily reel off Vacheron Constantin’s numerous achievements over its 260 plus years of history without batting an eye. But when he visited Hong Kong just last month with vintage timepieces in tow, our conversation naturally, was about the brand’s incredible past and the incredible service that is Les Collectionneurs.Show Notes(00:05) Introduction(03:46) Conversation with Christian Selmoni(37:08) Around the World with the #SilverSpitfireFollow Stephanie on Instagram @stephlovesrockyFollow Kevin on Instagram @kevincureauFind us on the web, Instagram and FacebookHK specific sites: website, Instagram, Facebook

With the focus on IWC this week, our guest is none other than Hannes Pantli, board member at IWC and one of the biggest collectors of IWC watches, who recounts the history of IWC and how the watch company evolved through the eras of watchmaking.Pantli, who started in IWC in 1972, counts opening the Middle Eastern markets and guiding IWC through the Quartz Crisis as some of his milestones. It was also due to his foresight that the oversized Portofino dress watch line became the success that is today.Show Notes(00:05) Introduction with Darren Ho(02:24) Conversation with Hannes Pantli(24:11) IWC The Longest Flight(25:40) Check our website for the latest watch storiesFollow Stephanie on Instagram @stephlovesrockyFollow Kevin on Instagram @kevincureauFind us on the web, Instagram and FacebookHK specific sites: website, Instagram, Facebook
On this episode of the Revolution Watch Podcast, our guest is Michael Friedman. A walking encyclopaedia, horological expert, museum curator and charming storyteller, Friedman's current title is Head of Complications at Audemars Piguet, a role he stepped into since the beginning of this year. But his knowledge of watches does not start or end with AP. Friedman has worked extensively in watch and clock museums; he was the VP and Department Head of Watches for Christie's New York in 1999, and had his own consultancy firm, providing services for collectors, auction houses and other establishments before he joined Audemars Piguet in 2013.Show Notes(00:06) Introduction(01:49) Our interview with Michael Friedman(01:17:43) Talking Cartier with John Goldberger(01:18:31) Patek Philippe ref. 3449(01:18:47) Apollo 11 50th Anniversary celebration(01:19:00) Reliving History with James RaganFollow Stephanie on Instagram @stephlovesrockyFollow Kevin on Instagram @kevincureauFind us on the web, Instagram and FacebookHK specific sites: website, Instagram, Facebook
Over here at Revolution, we're firm believers that the world of watches permeates through every aspect of contemporary culture, be it sports, films, music, art, space travel—whatever it is, there's a talking point to be had.Here today, it's the art of tattooing that we want to talk about. There have been a few takes on tattoo-inspired watches before, but none so successful as Hublot's collaboration with Maxime Plescia-Büchi.Show Notes(00:12) Introduction(02:16) Revolution HK Instagram(03:23) Adam Craniotes joins Revolution(04:09) Interview with Maxime Plescia-Büchi(55:40) Only Watch 2019Follow Stephanie on Instagram @stephlovesrockyFollow Kevin on Instagram @kevincureauFind us on the web, Instagram and FacebookHK specific sites: website, Instagram, Facebook
