Once we’re inside the case, we don’t necessarily see a traditional dial, but we have an unadulterated view of the caliber MB M62.48. Here the movement’s titanium mainplate and bridges (visible through the caseback) are extensively skeletonlized to further add to the watch’s lightness. Even the anthracite subdial has been made of anodized aluminum, and is likewise skeletonized.
The inspiration behind the new caliber MB M62.48 is a historical movement from Minerva known as the Calibre 48 Movement.
The Caliber 48 was the created in 1943, by one Andres Frey who sought to use Pythagoras’ golden ratio in his design of the movement’s bridges and overall architecture. The MB M62.48 uses the same Pythagorean ratio in its architecture, made apparent by the shape of its bridges, which are reminiscent of the Caliber 48’s. Albeit, owing to the skeletonization on the movement, this is a decidedly modern reinterpretation of the original Caliber 48.
