Baselworld 2019: Legacy Machine Flying T
Now in its 14th year of creating collaborative works of audacious horological art for the wrist – and sometimes for the tabletop – MB&F has finally created a timepiece dedicated exclusively to women.
The Legacy Machine Flying T is a three-dimensional creation, with a steeply cambered bezel and slender, beveled lugs on a round case that is fully set with diamonds. The high, convex domed sapphire crystal hovers over a curved dial plate. An asymmetric opening frames a raised flying tourbillon escapement, the carriage of which is topped by a single large diamond. A dial of white or black lacquer with blued gold hands sits on a 50° tilt at the 7 o’clock position. The watch is set with either
round-brilliant or baguette diamonds.
