First launched in 18k red or white gold, and then in two limited ‘Frost’ editions with frosted finishing, the MB&F Legacy Machine 101 is now also available in a limited edition of 33 pieces in platinum 950 featuring a distinctive blue face.
Equipped with the very first movement developed entirely in-house by MB&F, the Legacy Machine 101 embodies and accentuates the very essence of what is essential in a wristwatch: the balance wheel, which is responsible for regulating precision; how much power remains in the mainspring, which indicates when it needs to be next wound; and of course, the time.
