With MEGAWIND Final Edition, the closing model in the HM3 series, MB&F present what
may well be the ultimate in contrast: light and dark. The darkness of the black PVD treated
18k gold case and blackened 22k gold and titanium rotor is punctuated in the dark
by the bright green glow of Super-LumiNova. And the light emanating steadily from the
indications is in contrast to the stroboscopic flash of light as the rotor covers/uncovers
a bright band of lume at the top of the movement.
For this Final Edition, MB&F has called on the latest high-performance Super-LumiNova
available on the market today: GL C3 Grade A. This is not only the brightest but also the
purest form of the luminescent material, recognisable by its typical green hue; while
Super-LumiNova comes in many colours, the active pigments are always green and other
colours partially mask the green glow.
Derived from the iconic HM3 series, MB&F's most successful model to date, MEGAWIND
Final Edition combines an oversized winding rotor dial side with highly-legible time
indication cones rising up from the asymmetric case: hours are displayed on the left,
minutes on the right. An exceptionally-skilled artisan painstakingly applies SuperLumiNova
on these conical indications by hand, one numeral after the other, with a small
syringe – consistently squeezing out just the right amount of the luminescent paste.
HM3 MEGAWIND Final Edition is a limited edition of 25 pieces in black PVD-treated
18k gold and titanium, with Super-LumiNova numerals and band under the rotor.
