MB&F

LEGACY MACHINE FLYING T

The first MB&F Machine dedicated to women owes its genesis to founder Maximilian Büsser’s ruminations on the keystone roles that women have played in his life. Launched in 2019, LM FlyingT manifested a rich and complex femininity, choosing to embody elegance and vitality – a formidable resilience – over the softer conventions of womanhood.

The LM FlyingT was launched in white gold set with diamonds, in three editions: black lacquer; fully set with brilliant-cut diamonds; and fully set with baguette-cut diamonds.

In 2020, LM FlyingT added three new references, first shedding its diamonds with limited editions in red gold and platinum, featuring guilloche dial plates; and finally in white gold set with diamonds, with a dial plate in lapis lazuli.

Worldwide shipping is offered free of charge. Local customs duties and other taxes applicable in the country of delivery are borne by the buyer.

Description

The creative process behind Legacy Machine FlyingT started when Maximilian Büsser began thinking about making something inspired by the feminine influences in his life. To bring out a different level of refinement for the feminine LM FlyingT, the Legacy Machine case was completely redesigned. Case height and diameter were reduced in order to shift the focus to the highly convex sapphire crystal dome. The lugs were slimmed down, their curves were emphasised, and deep bevels were introduced to create a more elegant profile.

Dynamism and precisely engineered motion characterise the LM FlyingT. A soaring flying 60-second tourbillon projects, column-like, from the dial plate, driven by energy generated by the sun-shaped rotor - offering 100 hours of power reserve (four days). A diamond flashes atop the upper tourbillon cage.

At the foot of the flying tourbillon, located at 7 o’clock, is a subdial of lacquer (or lapis lazuli) that displays the hours and minutes with a pair of delicate serpentine hands. The dial is inclined at a 50° tilt so that the time can be read only by the wearer; an intimate communication that highlights the very personal nature of the LM FlyingT. The message is subtle but clear: whoever the owners of the LM FlyingT may be, their time belongs to them and no one else.

The Creator

Maximilian Büsser and Friends

After decades confirming to the rules of corporate watchmaking, Max Büsser broke the chains and started a rebellion in 2005; a rebellion called MB&F - Maximilian Büsser & Friends.

MB&F is an artistic concept laboratory based around a simple idea: to assemble collectives of independant watchmaking professionals to develop radical watches - Horological or Legacy Machines. By nurturing teams of talented individuals, harnessing their passion and creativity and crediting each person's essential role, MB&F uses their synergy to become much greater than the sum of its parts. Respecting tradition, but never constrained by it, MB&F reinterprets traditional, high-quality watchmaking into three-dimensional kinetic sculptures.

While MB&F’s futuristic Horological Machines have a firm foundation in the very best of traditional horology, Büsser wanted to pay homage to that rich tradition by imagining the type of timepieces he might create if he had been born 100 years earlier, i.e. 1867 instead of 1967. This gave birth to the more classic Legacy Machine collection, initiated with Legacy Machine No.1.
