In 2019, MB&F launched the Legacy Machine FlyingT, their first three-dimensional horological artwork designed specifically for women. In the same year, the watch won the Best Ladies' Complication Award at the 2019 Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève.
Since then, LM FlyingT has launched a variety of styles, including white gold with diamonds, red gold and platinum guilloche dials, and of course, last year's "FlyingT Allegra" in collaboration with Bulgari. There are also gemstone versions, Lapis Lazuli in 2020 and Malachite in 2021.
Today, the Swiss independent watch brand unveils the Legacy Machine FlyingT Tiger Eye, a new interpretation featuring dials and subdials made of golden brown gemstones, all made of 18k yellow gold with a case and steeply curved bezel And slender lugs, completely set with diamonds.
The time is displayed at 7 o'clock, and the subdial inclined 50° vertically has two serpentine hands. Two crowns can be used to wind the swiss replica watches (left) or set the time (right).
The soaring vertical structure of the FlyingT automatic movement is topped by a 60-second flying tourbillon. As the name suggests, the flying tourbillon is only fixed at the bottom, and there is no stabilizing bridge at the top that limits lateral movement.
Beating slowly at 18,000 vibrations per hour (2.5 Hz), this 280-part movement offers a power reserve of 100 hours.
The caseback showcases the self-winding oscillating weight in the shape of a three-dimensional red gold sun with sculpted rays.
MB&F (Maximilian Büsser & Friends) started using its horological machinery in 2005 to create unconventional timepieces with designs that seem to come from an imagined future. Ten years ago, in 2011, the Swiss brand added a second collection, called Legacy Machines. In this case, the inspiration came from the imagined past, trying to figure out what MB&F would have created a century ago.
In 2021, MB&F celebrates the 10th anniversary of Legacy Machines with the new LMX, a creation inspired by the Legacy Machine N°1 with its central flying balance and two dials.
Under the convex sapphire crystal dome, we find two stretched white lacquered dials, each with its own hour and minute display. The right dial is set at 2 o'clock by the crown. The crown is engraved with the MB&F Tomahawk and also winds the movement. The other crown at 10 o'clock is engraved with a globe to remind you that you can use it to indicate a second time zone, setting the time on the left dial.Best fake watch
Both dials are inclined at an angle, a feature that requires a complex technical solution to transfer energy from the horizontal to the vertical via bevel gears.
Three large wheels are visible: next to each winding crown, two large wheels activate when setting the time on the corresponding time display, while the cog at 6 o'clock is the ordinary seconds wheel.
The 13.4 mm balance wheel, which beats slowly at 18,000 vibrations per hour, has an inertial mass, marking the difference from a conventional spiral balance wheel, offering greater adjustment precision.
The remarkable 7-day (168-hour) power reserve is shown on a 3D display with a choice between two countdown remaining autonomy modes. Two markers are located on opposite sides of the hemisphere; one is framed by arched scales numbered 1 to 7, and the other has scales showing the days of the week.Richard Mille RM 35-01 Rafael Nadal
The entire power reserve display can be rotated so that the preferred display type can be selected.
The LMX's movement, or "engine" as MB&F calls it, is symmetrical on both sides. The transparent sapphire crystal case back reveals three evenly spaced central barrels, as evidenced by the sunburst pattern in the Côtes de Genève finish.
Measuring 44mm in diameter and 21.4mm thick, the MB&F LMX is available in two limited release versions: grade 5 titanium with green CVD treated bridges and bridges, and 18k red gold with black NAC treated bridges and bridges.
