MB&F is celebrating the ten-year anniversary of their HM4 Thunderbolt with the new HM4 ‘Kittyhawk’ timepiece. This new ‘Pièce Unique’ timepiece was inspired by the iconic Curtiss P-40 aircraft, also known as the ‘Kittyhawk’, and it shows. Along the sides of the fuselages on the new HM4 ‘Kittyhawk’ are the same shark mouth and eyes design that graced the aircraft. MB&F tapped miniaturist painter Isabelle Villa to create the design for the timepiece and her expertise is on full display. Of course, MB&F applied a final coat of transparent varnish to protect the design. As with the other HM4 timepieces, the two fuselages display only the most important information: power reserve on the left and time on the right (hours and minutes). As mentioned before, this is a Pièce Unique, meaning the HM4 ‘Kittyhawk’ is a true one-of-a-kind creation. Pricing has not been given as of yet.
