Three months after winning the Best Ladies' Complication prize at GPHG and one year after its release, the MB&F Legacy Machine FlyingT is finally ready to embrace its natural self. Shedding off its diamonds, the timepiece is released again in two edition; Red Gold & Platinum.
Following the success the diamond studded beauties received last year by becoming the brands best-selling Machine of 2019, MB&F decided to do something different for 2020. The two new variations feature the signature guilloché dial plate, crafted by hand in Kari Voutilainen’s workshops: the 18K red gold case houses a dial plate as dark as a moonless night, while the other is midsummer sky-blue, in a platinum case.
Limited to just 18 pieces each the only diamond-studded connection the earlier version has to the current edition is the presence of one single 0.035-carat stone that rotates in time with the underlying mechanism. Keeping it intimate is the inclined dial at 7 o' clock that permits only the wearer to read time.
