MB&F

LM SPLIT ESCAPEMENT EVO

Following the LM Perpetual EVO, the LM Sequential EVO, and the LM Split Escapement EVO (first introduced as a limited edition for the United Arab Emirates’ 50th anniversary), MB&F is now introducing a new EVO edition, proving that EVO is becoming a collection in its own right.

The first editions of the LM Split Escapement were presented in MB&F’s classic Legacy Machine case – but the collection now also features the EVO case, conceived for a more active lifestyle.

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 EVO case, first introduced in 2020 in the form of the LM Perpetual EVO, is conceived for an active lifestyle. It features 80 metres of water resistance, a screw-down crown and integrated rubber strap, Super-LumiNova on the display and a bezel-free design. Inside the case, the movement is suspended thanks to the FlexRing system, dampening the vertical and horizontal shocks that come with real-life adventures.


In addition to the EVO case, The LM Split Escapement EVO features a change that radically modifies the design of the LM Split Escapement: the entire mechanism is rotated clockwise by 30 degrees, with the crown at 4:30 instead of 2 o’clock – completely changing the symmetry of the watch, giving it a totally new character.


Another feature is the special darkened treatment on the movement side, creating heightened contrast between the wheels, the rhodium-plated barrels and the rose gold details – symbolically echoing the contrast between the active, contemporary nature of the EVO collection and the traditional finishing of the movement. MB&F is one of only a handful of artisanal brands that continue to finish components painstakingly by hand, making the view of the movement as mesmerizing as the dial.

The LM Split Escapement EVO is not a watch for sports, it is a watch for life.

The Creator

Maximilian Büsser and Friends

After decades conforming 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. With the EVO editions, the Legacy Machines gain a new level of liberation offering additional comfort, water resistance and legibility.
