Releasing one or two products a year—historically wristwatches—each MB&F watch represents innovation in design and engineering of the highest level. The second in MB&F’s expected series of five Legacy watches, each piece is an exercise in time travel, with founder Max Büsser posing the question, “If I were alive a hundred or more years ago, I wonder what kind of watches I’d be making?” The answer is a complex dual regular, which the Legacy Machine 2 employs for balance in a feat of horological engineering. The watch comes in 18k white or yellow gold, and in a limited edition of 18 in platinum with the blue dial.
From Max Büsser and the boundary-pushing horology crew at MB&F comes a timepiece like nothing you have seen before, inspired by both the obscure Amida Digitrend watches from the 1970s, and the Lambos and Mustangs of the same era; the watch itself has an adjustable exhaust system. With a mechanically powered side-on display, perfect for those who often need to tell time while at the helm of one of the aforementioned muscle cars, this unique watch artfully merges retro inspiration with modern mechanics and materials.
