MB&F Thunderbolt Wrist watch



Normal wristwatch has a simple work to show the time. In that kind of wrist watch only needed things are a hand of hour and for the minutes and power reservoir to keep track of running time. Thunderbolt HM4 has a hand of hour, minutes, and a power reserve indicator. 

The case of thunderbolt HM4 made from titanium which imparts lightweight and strength with a sapphire centre section offering a view into the engine. The limited editions HM4 Razzle Dazzle and Double Trouble take the aviation theme even further with real rivets in their fuselages and hand painted nose art inspired by the rebellious paintings on WWII aircraft, while HM4 RT offers an altogether more luxurious way to fly. Thunderbolt's engine is the result of three years effort of development.. Each of the 300-plus components – including the regulator and even the screws – was developed specifically for this anarchistic caliber.
