The MB&F HM4 Thunderbolt Watch Is A Beast


Looking more like a set of super expensive binoculars than any watch I’ve ever seen, this MB&F HM4 Thunderbolt Watch is one crazily designed gadget. It  has three hands on it (one of the hour, one for the minute, and the other a freaking power reserve indicator), is made out of...
