MB&F’s LM Perpetual EVO was unveiled last year as a watch that, despite its intricacy and complexity, could and should be worn like any other robust timepiece.
At the time, the brand explained how the EVO suffix marked a significant evolution of the MB&F story.
The redesigned, sleeker case, ergonomic double-sprung pushers, an integrated rubber strap, Super-LumiNova, a specially developed ‘FlexRing’ shock-absorbing system, a screw-down crown and 80 metres of water resistance prompted MB&F to call it “Not just a watch for sports, but a watch for life”.
That first EVO collection, three launch editions in zirconium, sold out within weeks, leaving MB&F with a fresh story to tell but no watches to sell.
That is being put right this month with a new LM Perpetual Evo reference in titanium with a green dial plate.
The perpetual calendar movement with 72 hour power reserve is the same as the original, based on a mechanical processor consisting of a series of superimposed disks that treats 28 days in a month as a default, and then adds the extra days as required by each individual month.
This ensures that each month has exactly the right number of days, and removes the possibility of the date jumping incorrectly.
An inbuilt safety feature disconnects the quickset pushers during the date changeover, so that even if the pushers are accidentally actuated whilst the date is changing, there is no risk of damage to the movement.
It comes in a sapphire crystal and titanium 44 x 17.5mm form that is water resistant to 270 feet.
The watch is worn on a rubber strap.
