“The last thing I wanted to do was to take a masculine timepiece, resize it, put a different colour on it, and call it a ladies’ watch,” says Maximilian Büsser, watchmaker extraordinaire and founder of MB&F.
Büsser avoided these stereotypes with the Legacy Machine FlyingT. Solidly built with some imaginative touches, the FlyingT is a worthy addition to MB&F’s stable of three-dimensional kinetic art.
The white gold case retains the profile of its masculine predecessors but with more slender dimensions. As such the domed sapphire crystals on the front and back appear more pronounced.
The small hour-and-minute dial, positioned at ‘7’ and with serpentine hands, is angled at 50° so that only the wearer can see the time. This, it hopes, will create a more personal connection between watch and wearer.
