When the MB&F Legacy Machine Split Escapement debuted in 2017, come in four different versions, all in white gold cases, with “frosted” dial plates in blue, ruthenium, rose gold or yellow gold. This year MB&F has introduced an update to its Legacy Machine ‘Split Escapement’ collection.
The LM SE Titanium Green, like all other models in the collection, has maintained the suspended balance wheel which sits above everything else. Housed in a 44 mm × 17.5 mm grade 5 titanium case, the new edition features an eye-catching sun-ray, green dial.
The new 33 limited edition comes is the first Legacy Machine Split Escapement to come in a non-precious metal as well as the first with a green dial.
Technical features remain the same. Just below the highest point of the domed dial crystal, the balance of LM SE slowly beats at 2.5 Hz (18,000 vph). However, unlike most of the other suspended balances in the Legacy Machine collection, the balance of LM Split Escapement seems to oscillate on its own, without any visible intake of energy.
Under the balance, the triple-dial design of LM SE gives the time at 12 o’clock, the power reserve indication at 4 o’clock and the date at 8 o’clock. The date can be quickly and easily adjusted thanks to a push-button on the side of the case, next to the date dial.
The MB&F Legacy Machine Split Escapement Titanium Green is a limited edition of 33 pieces with a price of Swiss Francs 64,000 / Euro 59,000 / US$ 68,000. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
