MB&F and Bulgari Collaborate on Space-Age US$185K Watch
MB&F founder Max Büsser launched his first ladies’ watch, the LM FlyingT (the “T” stands for tourbillon), back in 2019 and the timepiece’s futuristic design was unlike anything on the market.
Collectors could choose from a diamond-set bezel and case or a diamond pavé-set dial, both of which proved so popular—among both genders—that the watchmaker has since unveiled seven additional models, the latest being a cosmic collaboration with Bulgari that’s available from the end of this month.
A seemingly unlikely partnership, the LM FlyingT Allegra is the result of Büsser’s friendship with Bulgari’s creative director of watches, Fabrizio Buonamassa Stigliani.
The futuristic looking domed case design that’s come to define MB&F’s LM FlyingT models comes with a diamond-dusted mainplate that’s scattered with a characterful combination of coloured gemstones—a common feature of Stigliani’s Bulgari Allegra models.
Tsavorite, topaz, amethyst, tanzanite, rubellite and tourmaline are set into the dial, which is housed in white or rose gold cases. Limited to just 20 pieces for each case material, the LM FlyingT Allegra comes with a hefty price tag of US$185,000 so, if it catches your eye, you better act fast.
