MB&F - Legacy Machine N. 1 Final Edition

| 2 Comments
Launched in 2011, the Legacy Machine N. 1 was the first model of the second collection of MB&F (the first being the Horological Machines), introducing a distinctive design code characterised by a round case, white lacquer dials, Roman numerals, classically finished movement plates and bridges and above all a suspended balance at the centre of the dial.


Over the last six years, MB&F produced a total of approximately 435 pieces of the Legacy Machine N°1, making it the most prolific ambassador of MB&F besides the emblematic Horological Machine N°3. The LM1 has appeared in red gold, white gold, platinum and titanium, in faces of blue, grey and green as well as in two Performance Art editions.

The LM1’s unique three-dimensional movement, with its 14 mm balance wheel slowly beating at 18,000 vibrations per hour above the dial, was developed for MB&F from Maximilian Büsser’s sketches by Jean-François Mojon and his team at Chronode together with independent watchmaker Kari Voutilainen, responsible for style and finishing of the movement.


In line with Busser's vision to keep exploring new creativity territories without stopping in comfort areas, the Legacy Machine N°1 Final Edition brings the LM1 series to a close with a limited edition in stainless steel, with a dark chocolate face.



The two time displays, indicated on subtly convex dials of stretched lacquer with an enamel-like gloss, are based on a single movement and allow autonomous setting without reference to fixed time zones. The vertical power-reserve indicator offers a strongly intuitive and legible reading of barrel wind.


A new balance bridge with an elliptical cross section, cambered and tapered in the style that MB&F introduced to audiences in the Legacy Machine 101, is the one departure from the original open worked design. in addition, instead of being satin-finished, the bridge of the new model is mirror polished, a detail which makes it stand out even more against the sunray-finished base.
The LM1 Final Edition is limited to 18 pieces in stainless steel with a price of Swiss Francs 79,000 before taxes. mbandf.com
