Oct 04, 2011
Max Busser and Friends (MB&F) has proudly taken the wraps off their new Legacy Machine 1 watch, which heart was born under the keen eyes and dexterous hands of Jean-Francois Mojon and Kari Voutilainen. Highly esteemed in the challenging world of horology, Jean-Francois Mojon developed the design of the models movement, while Kari Voutilainen took care of its impeccable finishing.

Beating inside the new MB&F watch is a hand-wound three-dimensional movement. It supplies a 45-hour power reserve. The caliber comprises 279 individual parts, including 23 jewels. It operates at a frequency of 18,000 vibrations per hour.

Integrated within the mechanism is a 14mm balance wheel with four conventional regulating screws, floating above the movement and dials. The balance spring is a traditional Breguet curve, which terminates in a mobile stud holder.

The movement incorporates gold chatons with polished countersinks. It also boasts fine finishes, which include extraordinary hand-crafted finishing, created in the spirit of respect to the 19th century style; Geneva waves and hand-made engravings.

The caliber finds its natural home in a 44mm case made of 18k red or white gold. It is composed of 65 individual parts. The top of the new MB&F Legacy Machine 1 watch is protected by a domed sapphire crystal, with internal and external glare-proofed coating. Its back part is fitted with sapphire glass with anti-glare treatment on a single side.

The movement animates hours and minutes, displayed on two independent dials. The left dial is controlled by a crown at 8 oclock. In charge of the right dial and winding is a crown at 4 oclock. Moreover, the watch face demonstrates a unique vertical power reserve indicator.

The new MB&F watch is worn on a black or brown hand-stitched alligator leather strap, finished with a gold tang buckle.
