Remember when aliens were a thing not too long ago? Sigourney Weaver and the alien queen (the stuff of nightmares), Moulder and Scully, the propagation of the conspiracy theories surrounding Area 51, Rosswell, New Mexico and every teenaged kid rocking some sorta alien tee with those godawful baggy, Fubu jeans. May be the turn of the century had something to with it too. All that fear swirling around computers being unable to recognize the date January 1st 2000 and bringing the world to a crashing halt.
Whatever the case may have been, it’s undeniable that the world was fascinated by the prospect of extraterrestrial life, somewhere out there. So, for those of us who were the 90s kids — and owned one of those Fubu baggy jeans — the all new MB&F Horological Machine N°6 Alien Nation is sure to tug a heartstring, or two.
An evolution of the original Horological Machine N°6 Space Pirate and the later, Sapphire Vision, the Alien Nation is first and foremost now a completely sapphire clad timepiece. Because of the watch’s complex case structure though, it needs to be crafted for 12 individually milled pieces of sapphire before the case is assembled and reinforced with Grade-5 titanium elements.
