MB&F Legacy Machine FlyingT Green Malachite
The Legacy Machine FlyingT
Champion of independent watchmaking, MB&F unveils their newest ladies watch, the Legacy Machine FlyingT with a vivid green malachite dial.
The Legacy Machine FlyingT was first launched in 2019 in three editions, all in white gold and set with diamonds: black lacquer dial plate with case set with brilliant-cut diamonds; dial plate and case both fully set with brilliant-cut diamonds; and dial plate and case both fully set with baguette-cut diamonds.
Three new references followed in 2020, first shedding its diamonds with limited editions in red gold and platinum, featuring guilloche dial plates; and in an 18k white gold case adorned with diamonds, with a deep blue lapis lazuli dial plate. In 2021, LM FlyingT adds a new dial plate in vivid green malachite.

Legacy Machine FlyingT Inspirations
The design of Legacy Machine FlyingT is replete with associations drawn from the feminine and maternal influences in Maximilian Büsser’s life. Says Büsser, “I wanted LM FlyingT to possess the epitome of femininity as reflected by the women in my life, particularly my mother. It had to combine supreme elegance with tremendous vitality. The column-like structure of the flying tourbillon was very important to me as I felt very strongly that women form the pillar of humanity. At the same time, there is another layer of meaning coming in from the sun-shaped rotor, which incorporates the element of life-giving, a source of sustenance which we gravitate towards and around.”
