LEGACY MACHINE N°2 RED GOLD BLUE
Six years after wooing fine watchmaking enthusiasts with its launch, the charisma of this timepiece is continued with this distinguished limited edition.
Despite its variations since its launch in 2013, Legacy Machine n°2 never fails to captivate. In 2018, the edition combining a white gold case and a purple dial produced using a Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) treatment treated us to a visual emotion of rare intensity. For the new LM2 Red Gold Blue, MB&F is still using this chemical procedure to give it its stylish appeal but this time in magnetic blue platinum with a sunray-effect finish. In this refined decor respecting 19th century style, the protective sapphire dome contains a small white enamel dial at 12 o’clock on which the hour and minute hands revolve, as well as the two symmetrical flying balance wheels which produce their slow cadence of 18,800 oscillations per hour. At 6 o’clock, a raised planetary differential regulates the ensemble. Acting as an interface, it transmits the average rate of the two regulators to a single gear train.
Inside the 44 mm rose gold case assembled using 41 parts, the 241 components of the caliber contribute to the efficient running of the watch. This manual-winding movement, created by Jean-François Mojon and Kari Voutilainen, ensures a power reserve of 45 hours when fully charged.
The 12 pieces of Legacy Machine n°2 Red Gold Blue come with a black alligator strap finished with a pin buckle.
