This new edition of Legacy Machine No1 celebrates the opening of MB&F’s M.A.D. Gallery in Dubai opened in partnership with Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons. LM1 M.A.D. Dubai is a limited edition of just 13 pieces in Ti-6Al-4V (grade 5) titanium. It is the first Legacy Machine available in this high-tech aerospace grade alloy.
The LM1 M.A.D. Dubai edition is easily distinguished from its stable mates by the eye-catching vivid green of its CVD-treated movement main plate, as well as the Arabic-Hindi numerals of the "home time" sub dial. It is also worth emphasising that LM1 is one of very few dual time zone watches offering completely independent setting of both hours and minutes. Green CVD has only recently become an option; the colour has long been considered too unstable for commercial applications. While applying green CVD is a long process, light playing over the verdant surface creates spectacularly contrasting hues of blue and purple.
LM1's transcendental in-house movement bears testimony to the enormous talent of its creators, Jean-François Mojon of Chronode and Kari Voutilainen. Immaculate Geneva waves, highly polished gold chatons, and bridges with impeccably executed bevels following deliberate internal angles (which cannot be finished by machine) showcase the movement's absolutely peerless fine finishing. LM1’s movement proudly bears the names of both its creators, and is the first calibre other than Voutilainen's own to bear his name.
