Welcoming Royalty: MB&F's LM2

MB&F's Legacy Machine 2 is back in a new avatar – white gold and purple.

Having made its debut and many heads turn in 2013 with the Legacy Machine No.2, Maximillian Busser is stepping into the festive season on a rather royal note with the new LM2 White Gold Purple.

Following the sleeker balance bridges of the redesigned LM2 Titanium, the LM2 White Gold Purple offers a more elegant take on the original industrial aesthetic of the first LM2 with its sun-ray-finished dial plate. The dial has a purple hue which was achieved using the chemical vapour deposition (CVD) process, which evenly coats the dial surface and gives it a multi-faceted colouration under different angles of light — which in this case, ranges from a deep violet to an almost electric shade of plasma purple.

Limited to 12 pieces, the new LM2 contains multiple regulators to create a complex high-precision mechanism which plays three roles essentially – one, transferring power to each of the regulators; two, receiving the individual timing rates from each balance; and three, transmitting the average rate of the two regulators to the gear train, where it finally manifests itself as the displayed time.
