LEGACY MACHINE FLYINGT RED GOLD AND PLATINUM
Nights as lovely as days. These limited editions come in two versions whose dials with their deep colors are metaphors for the fleeting time of day.
The first watch for women by MB&F presented in the spring of 2019 is unlike any other. Which is perfectly understandable, as its unconventional design draws on the brand’s intensively creative universe. The Legacy Machine FlyingT seeks to be both complex and delicate. A central flying tourbillon focuses all our attention with its 60-second revolutions under the impressive 20-mm high dome. The discreet, white lacquered dial positioned at 7 o’clock is inclined to 50°. Its serpentine hands display the hours and minutes. Given its position, it is visible only to the wearer whose elegant wrist is adorned with this timepiece.
The first models sparkled in their diamond-set cases. These new versions are presented unadorned… almost. One combines a 38.5-mm rose gold case with a concentric black guilloché dial. The other combines a platinum case of the same size with a luminous blue guilloché. Their production is limited to just 18 pieces each. They are worn on a calf or alligator leather strap ending in a pin buckle.
Mechanically, the self-winding movement assembled with 280 components provides the Legacy Machine FlyingT with a 100-hour power reserve, or 4 days. There are also two symmetrical crowns at 3 and 9 o’clock, one for setting the time, the other for winding the movement.
