    M.A.D.1 Red

    Follow up to the blue (think there's at least one of those on here) - who's signing up?

    https://shop.madgallery.ch/products/m-a-d-1-red-raffle

    I am torn in what I think about this - think it's one of those watches where to a random person it's a terrible monstrosity, but the more you read the story of MB&F and the concept, you get sucked in.

    Itís an amazing bit of Engineering

    They have built some amazing watches over the years, for the price this has to be the best

    Intriguing...£2,345 for one, though presumably some duty to pay on top of that.

    Saw one of the original black models of these at the last Redbar meeting. Proper bit of horology for not a huge amount of coin. Iím in with fingers crossed!

    It does not state how many they will makeÖ so the lottery could not be a lottery. I am in a happy if I get one but could just be a smart bit of marketing

    Not sure that, in the current context, the acronym added to MB&F is such a good idea.
    But a wonderful thing to do, I wholeheartedly approve both the way ch and the chosen process to acquire it. And Max Busser is one of the most approachable people I have met in the industry.

    I have the utmost respect for what MB&F do, I love the look of this, too, and would get on the list at 1/5th the price. But... this is a basically a Kickstarter microbrand offer in all but name, right down to its (excellent) Miyota movement, and were it actually from some no-name, this rather lovely thing would be getting sneered out-of-court!

    Damn nice watch though . . . This has 'future collector's-item' all over it

    Me too. Unsuccessful.

    No joy for me either, found it in my junk folder.

  37. #37
    Nothing here yet, reading on wus that 75% went to ďfriends of friendsĒ leaving only 450 for the lottery and 25,000 entries. There will be another release next year with all being allocated to another lottery.

    yes, they made 1200 pcs but anyone that expressed an interest in the blue was automatically assigned one and anyone at watches and wonders that asked were also offered one so all in all I can't imagine there were many truly available for the lottery.

    Congrats TWB, should be fun in the incoming thread later on this year.

    Congrats to both who got one - very excited to see photos!
    I got the rejection email. It went in my junk. Thanks to this thread for flagging the draw was yesterday - I would never have checked otherwise!

    Valid point.

    Without this forum (and thread) I wouldnít have known about the lottery or checked my email yesterday.

    Have popped something into the fundraiser as a thank you.

    Brilliant to see that some have actually been able to get one. Really looking forward to seeing these.
