Launched in 2013, MB&F‘s Legacy Machine No.2 remains one of the boldest expressions of traditional mechanical watchmaking. In 2023, the Swiss luxury watchmaker brings back this watch in a new palladium case, showcasing an aquamarine sunray dial, with subtle pale green, grey and blue tones. The new model features the same engine in its precious case.
Legacy Machine No.2 features dual flying balances, suspended high above the dial from four arcing arms. Its dial is the top plate of the movement. The white stretched lacquer sub dial at 12 o’clock is visually balanced by the large, raised differential at 6 o’clock. The two flying balances and their escapements are identical.
The movement of Legacy Machine No.2 was developed to MB&F’s specifications by award-winning watchmaker Jean-François Mojon (Best Watchmaker at the 2010 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève) and his team at Chronode. Watchmaker Kari Voutilainen ensured that the movement’s aesthetic style was consistent with high-quality traditional timepieces of the 19th century.
Immaculate Geneva waves, gold chatons, mirror-polished bevels and bridges designed with internal bevelled angles showcase the movement’s finishing. The new Palladium edition offers a new NAC finish, offering a deep anthracite color. The names of the two men responsible for the movement are hand engraved on the back.
Legacy Machine No.2 was initially in 18k red gold, 18k white gold and a limited edition of 18 pieces in platinum 950. A limited edition of 18 pieces in titanium with a green face joined in 2017, and in 2018 MB&F released a limited edition of 12 pieces in white gold with a purple face. In 2019, a red gold blue limited edition was launched in just 12 pieces. The new Palladium timepiece is available in a limited edition of 18 pieces.
