Watch brand MB&F (Maximilian BÃ¼sser & Friends) has long established itself as a horological concept laboratory that engages in artistic endeavours to design and craft radical concept watches.
Now, it has introduced a new edition of the Legacy Machine (LM) FlyingT. Dynamism and precise engineering characterise the LM FlyingT. Featuring a guillochÃ© dial plate that exists in two versions.
One resembles a dark moonless night and is housed in a red gold case while the other is akin to a midsummer sky-blue with a platinum case.
The intricate pattern of the dial plates features a unique scalloped design that is created by engraving a brass disc with a hand-guided rose engine. Each disc is engraved manually by hand in accordance with traditional watchmaking decoration technique
At the top of the flying tourbillon that gives LM FlyingT its name, a single
0.035-carat stone that rotates in time with the underlying mechanism, making one complete turn every 60 seconds.
At the foot of the flying tourbillon, located at the 7 oâ€™clock position, is a dial of white lacquer that displays the hours and minutes with a pair of blue serpentine hands.
Driven by the energy generated by the sun-shaped rotor, the LM FlyingT’s in-house developed MB&F flying 60-second tourbillon is a visually stunning movement of the rotating escapement and stands in stark contrast to other flying tourbillons, which usually do not venture past the confines of their surrounding watch dials.
The Legacy Machine FlyingT is now offered in two limited editions of 18 pieces each: 18k red gold case with black guillochÃ© dial (Night) and platinum 950 case with sky-blue guillochÃ© dial (Day).
