MB&F, known for its wildly creative timepieces, has finally launched a long-awaited timepiece dedicated to women. After reinventing high-end watchmaking with a parade of men’s high-tech timepieces inspired by space ships, robots, rockets and various amphibious creatures, MB&F has boldly gone where it never has before: into the realm of ladies’ watches.
