Luxury watches are often explorations of mechanics and art but the HM9 Flow stands out as an undeniably beautiful timepiece that looks more like a kinetic sculpture. The unconventional, curvilinear body and luxury steampunk aesthetic of the watch take some inspiration from aerodynamic bodies of airplanes and are an absolute pleasure to gaze at.

The movement driving the HM9 Flow was developed in-house and is produced from 301 parts, all of which are manually wound with 45 hours of power reserve. Several exhibition windows give the user a look at these movements, including the twin balance wheels.

The case of the HM9 Flow is constructed entirely of titanium, with five curved sapphire crystal windows giving users a view into the watch. Only 33 of these timepieces will be produced and come with a hefty price tag of $182,000.
