As Beyonce puts it: ‘Who run the world? Girls!’ In case you thought that men ruled the watch world, pause! Women too are tech savvy and enthusiastic about the timepieces. Every woman deserves only the best timepiece to grace her wrist.
A good news for all lovely women out there! MB&F has announced the launch of Legacy Machine FlyingT watch only for Her in three distinct glittering versions.
Maximilian Busser, the founder of MB&F said “The last thing I wanted to do, was to take a masculine timepiece, resize it, put a different color on it and call it a ladies’ watch”. Q
And he has done justice to what he said! The design of the watch is wild, yet elegant.
Let’s take a closer look of Legacy Machine FlyingT.
FlyingT features a central, flying tourbillon sitting high up under a massive domed sapphire crystal. It is more compact than elegant. At the centre of the dial is a one minute flying tourbillon beating at sedate frequency. The time display is asymmetrical which is a favourite style of MB&F’s watches.
The view from the back is striking. The FlyingT is fitted with an oscillating weight in the form of radiant, stylised sun cast in relief and made of solid 18k red gold with a centre of platinum.
The Three versions of MB&F Legacy Machine FlyingT
The watch is to release in three variations: one with a black lacquer dial plate, one with a dial plate and case set with brilliant-cut diamonds (Paved version), and the last one with a dial plate and case both set with baguette-cut diamonds. They cost $115,000, $145,000 and $315,000 respectively. In all three versions a diamond resides on top of the tourbillon cage which makes it a beautiful watch.
A stunning horological sculpture, MB&F has done it again. I do believe Max Büsser has come good on his ambition to make a watch for women. There will be some who think it is perhaps too like the existing Legacy Machines to claim such success. But, the only thing shared by the old and the new models is the layout concept.
Launching a technical upgrade like a tourbillon in a piece designed for women is a really cool move. This is certainly a range for those with very deep pockets.
