Esquire Q&A: Max Büsser on the rocky road of entrepreneurship
Swiss businessman Maximillian Büsser is the founder, creator and chief creative officer of MB&F (Maximillian Büsser & Friends), a seriously luxurious independent watch brand.
Büsser’s watch portfolio previously includes CEO of Harry Winston, Inc. Rare Timepieces and senior manager at Jaeger-LeCoultre. In 2005 he left his corporate job and put his Master’s degree in Micro-Technology Engineering to work, starting his own watch company.
Büsser draws upon his life experiences and those close to him to create highly personal and unusual ‘horological machines’. Helmed by Büsser, MB&F also supports numerous lesser-known independent watchmakers and promotes watchmaking as an art form.
