Another watch that may be car related

OK so over here at Watchismo Times they have pictures of a new watch from MB&F called the Horological Machine No. 4.  According to them, MB&F says “I think people start finally understanding why we call our movements ‘engines’.”

To me it is pretty obvious the 2 side housings resemble heads of an engine.  More so than any watch I have ever seen.  The guys at Watchismo seem to think the inspiration for the watch came from a Y-Fighter from Star Wars.   It seems to me based on the quote from MB&F, that their inspiration is obviously an engine.  And it shows.  I am guessing the typical watch connoisseur is not a true gear head.  So I can see them not seeing the connection.
