MB&F first launched its Legacy Machine No.2 in 2013, a wonder cased in red gold, white gold and platinum, and now launches a limited edition of 18 pieces in titanium.
Changes to the model go beyond the use of grade 5 titanium for the case, the most obvious feature being a bluish-green face, the result of CVD (chemical vapour deposition) treatment.
The watch’s dual “flying” balance wheels are now secured by rounded bridges, polished to a mirror-finish while the bezel, previously brushed, is now also polished.
MB&F has also taken the opportunity to finesse the case, which is now a full millimetre slimmer.
Inside, the LM2 Titanium is as it was, power coming from a dual regulator movement conceived for MB&F by award-winning watchmakers Jean-François Mojon and Kari Voutilainen.
Accuracy is a premium thanks to two fully independent balance wheels and escapements, each beating at its own rate, with a planetary differential continuously averaging out the two rates.
Our view of the MB&F Legacy Machine No 2 in titanium; horological eye-candy, a fitting and lighter addition to a wonderfully avant-garde timepiece anyone would be proud to have on their wrist.
