MB&F’s Updated Legacy

A sporty, and limited, refresh for a famed piece.

By Terry Christodoulou 14/10/2020

Unique Swiss marque MB&F has taken its much-loved Legacy Machine and given it a youthful, sporty update.

Though know there’s more here than the simple addition of the rubber strap to the MB&F Legacy Machine Perpetual Calendar EVO — the manufacture making numerous technical changes to ensure it’s up to the rigours aligned with being a true sports watch.

It means a monoblock shock protection system – ‘FlexRing’ – added to the MB&F QP movement, protecting the 581 components that make up the impressive movement. Further, the case is now made of zirconium, a material in watchmaking and which is lighter than steel and harder wearing than titanium. Dials deliver a series of new pops coloured in black, orange or blue – with floating black discs used indicate the time.

Available in three colour configurations (white strap with black dial, graphite strap orange dial, black strap with blue dial), the timepiece is limited to just 45 pieces (15 of each colourway) for approx. $232,800 each.
