MB&F welcomes a new version, the LM2 Ti, to its Legacy Machine N°2 line of exceptional horological machines. Dressed in a Titanium Ti-6Al-4V alloy case, this new model boasts a vivid green dial.
The rounded profiles of Legacy Machine N°2 Ti's majestically arching balance wheel bridges impart a softer aesthetic than the original LM2 models. Its highly polished and redesigned bezel makes the case a full one millimeter slimmer than those of its predecessors. Ti-6Al-4V (grade 5), the high-tech titanium alloy used in aerospace and medical applications, offers a perfect blend of strength and lightness, ensuring that LM2 Ti sits seductively and comfortably on the wrist. When that spectacular PE-CVD-treated green dial catches the light from alternating angles, it comes alive with constantly changing iridescent sheens and hues of green and blue.
While the levitated oscillating balance wheels of the binary regulators catch and hold the viewer's gaze, it is the large planetary differential sitting proud of the dial that is the real heart of Legacy Machine No. 2. The differential has three roles: 1. Transferring power to each of the regulators; 2. Receiving the individual timing rates from each balance; and 3.Transmitting the average rate of the two regulators to the gear train, where it finally manifests itself as the displayed time.
Legacy Machine N°2 Ti is a limited edition of 18 pieces in a titanium Ti-6Al-4V alloy case.
