MUST SEE for EVERYONE! Horological Neophytes, All Trade Professionals (together with Advertising/Communication/Admin), and Press, this discuss by Stephen McDonnell is For You – Do not Miss This!

2023 is my sixth Dubai Watch Week and one of many highlights of the honest (the perfect on earth by far) is the Horological Boards, which vary from dialogue panels, interviews, debates, watch displays, and private life tales, to simply plain enjoyable.

I estimate I’ve seen – and have personally moderated 10 of them – round 80 of those ‘occasions’, and plenty of have been very, very, good: both. However on the 2023 honest, I noticed one which simply blew me away (and I’m a jaded outdated business veteran).

Stephen McDonnell at Dubai Watch Week 2023

It was a presentation by Irish motion constructor Stephen McDonnell, who amongst his many different accomplishments created the actions for the MB&F Legacy Machine Perpetual, which gained the prize for Finest Calendar Watch in 2016, and the MB&F LM Sequential EVO Twin Chronograph, which took the GPHG’s high prize, the Aiguille d’Or, in 2022.

In his presentation, McDonnell walked us via how he developed the motion for the MB&F sequential from the primary sketch to the completed watch. And for those who suppose that’s one thing you might be unlikely to seek out fascinating, not to mention compelling . . . belief me, you might be flawed.

I do know McDonnell, I’ve interviewed McDonnell for a lot of hours, I wrote the press launch for the MB&F Perpetual, and I assumed I had a reasonably good concept of what goes into creating an advanced motion, and I arrogantly/conceitedly/naively (take your choose, there are not any flawed solutions) thought that I had a reasonably good concept of what he would say. I couldn’t be extra flawed.
