MB&F and independent Irish watchmaker Stephen McDonnell have completely reinvented the most traditional of horological complications: the perpetual calendar. The result is the Legacy Machine Perpetual, featuring a in-house movement, which was developed from the ground up. This newest member of the Legacy Machine watch collection family is MB&F’s first perpetual calendar timepiece.
The perpetual calendar is one of the great traditional complications, calculating the apparently random complexity of the varying numers of days in each month – including the 29 days in February during leap years.
The 581-component, fully integrated and purpose-built movement of Legacy Machine Perpetual has been designed from scratch for trouble-free use and the mechanism is totally distinct from everything else out there: no more skipping dates or jamming gears, and the adjuster pushers automatically deacitvate when the calendar changes, so no problems there either. So the Legacy Machine Perpetual complexity is implified with integrity and beauty.
The movement which is exclusively designed and produced for MB&F is made from 581 parts operating at 2.5 Jz with a power reserve of 72 hours. This movement may be look retro but it isn’t, it has a very modern feel to it.
The MB&F Legacy Machine Perpetual comes with a very unique look due to its skeletonized dial and fully populated face. The polished bezel mixed with the light reflections off visible parts of the movement make for a dazzling look on the wrist. One of the most special design elements of the movement is the large, floating balance wheel. It is emphazised by the dial like in all Legacy Machine watches.
Time is displayed on an off-centered dial placed at the 12 o’clock position in white lacquer with blued hands. The legibility is great, even due to the many subdials and the skeletonized movement.
This watch launches with a limited edition of 24 Pieces in red gold and 25 pieces in platinum.
