Earlier this month, MB&F presented its new creation Legacy Machine No. 2. We were eager to publish the first information about this absolutely stunning model (to discover here) without knowing that some days later, we would have the opportunity to manipulate it.
It is indeed in the brand new watchmaking corner of the Bon Marché in Paris (which we strongly advise you to discover) that we had the privilege to admire two copies of this LM2 accompanied by Maximilian Büsser himself!
A such unexpected meeting that we totally forgot our camera… Never mind, as you have seen on instagram, our iPhone did the trick.
Here are some pictures of the Legacy Machine No. 2, not all high quality standard – thank you iPhone – that we wanted to share with you today.
The press release was right. The show offered by the two oscillating balance spring on the top of the dial is fantastic. We could have spent hours admiring it.
Immaculate Geneva waves, gold chatons, mirror-polished bevels and bridges designed with deliberate internal bevelled angles showcase the movement’s peerless fine finishing.
On the back, the movement can be admired while widely highlighting both Maximilian Büsser‘s “Friends” that took care of its development: Jean-François Mojon and Kari Voutilainen.
On the wrist, the Legacy Machine No. 2 is quickly forgotten, at least… when you don’t admire it!
Its pretty impressive 44mm diameter case did not bother us. Most likely due to its short horns that extend the extremely curved shape of its dome sapphire.
Both versions presented here are part of the 3 proposed by MB&F with one in rose gold, white gold and in a limited edition to 18 pieces in platinum singularized by a sky blue dial.
So, what do you think?
