ED­I­TOR’S CHOICE 2

MB& F LEGACY MA­CHINE 101 ( LM101)

Esquire Malaysia Watch Guide - - Breaking News -

This watch high­lights the es­sen­tial part of a wrist­watch: the bal­ance wheel, which is re­spon­si­ble for reg­u­lat­ing pre­cisely how much power is emit­ted to the gears, and of course, time. That’s not all: this time­piece fea­tures the first move­ment de­vel­oped com­pletely in-house by MB&F. Fur­ther­more, the glass sap­phire pro­tect­ing the dial ap­pears to be in­vis­i­ble and gives the il­lu­sion that you can reach in and touch the bal­ance wheel hang­ing from the el­e­gant twins arches. Th­ese are made from a block of metal and re­quire more than five hours of hand pol­ish­ing to get the gloss. The brand has long been fas­ci­nated by the long slow os­cil­la­tions of the bal­ance wheel pocket watches—2.5hz / 18,000vph com­pared to the fastest and short 4hz / 28,800vph common to­day. The strap is al­li­ga­tor with a gold hook to match the case.
