Dispatched in 2011, the Legacy Machine N. 1 was the first model of the second collection of MB&F (the first being the Horological Machines), introducing a distinctive design code characterized by a round case, white polish dials, Roman numerals, classically finished development plates and bridges or more every one of the a suspended equilibrium at the focal point of the dial.
Throughout the most recent six years, MB&F created an aggregate of approximately 435 pieces of the Legacy Machine N°1, making it the most prolific envoy of MB&F besides the emblematic Horological Machine N°3. The LM1 has showed up in red gold, white gold, platinum and titanium, in appearances of blue, dim and green just as in two Performance Art editions.
The LM1’s unique three-dimensional development, with its 14 mm balance wheel gradually beating at 18,000 vibrations each hour over the dial, was created for MB&F from Maximilian Büsser’s outlines by Jean-François Mojon and his group at Chronode along with independent watchmaker Kari Voutilainen, responsible for style and finishing of the development.
In line with Busser’s vision to continue exploring new creativity territories without stopping in comfort zones, the Legacy Machine N°1 Final Edition brings the LM1 series to a nearby with a limited edition in stainless steel, with a dull chocolate face.
The double cross displays, indicated on unobtrusively raised dials of extended polish with a lacquer like sparkle, depend on a single development and permit independent setting without reference to fixed time zones. The vertical force save indicator offers a firmly intuitive and legible reading of barrel wind.
Another offset bridge with an elliptical cross section, cambered and tightened in the style that MB&F introduced to audiences in the Legacy Machine 101, is the one takeoff from the original open worked design. in addition, instead of being satin-finished, the bridge of the new model is mirror polished, a detail which makes it stand apart much more against the sunray-finished base.
The LM1 Final Edition is limited to 18 pieces in stainless steel with a price of Swiss Francs 79,000 preceding assessments. mbandf.com
