MB&F has introduced an update to its Legacy Machine ‘Split Escapement’ collection.
The LM SE Titanium Green, like all other models in the collection, has maintained the suspended balance wheel which sits above everything else.
The new 33 limited edition comes in grade 5 titanium and features a green CVD-treated dial.
The sun-ray dial finish catches the light from alternating angles, constantly changing between blue and green hues, something which designers say adds a more contemporary edition to the series.
Just below the highest point of the domed dial crystal, the balance of LM SE beats at a traditional 18,000bph.
However, unlike most of the other suspended balances in the Legacy Machine collection, the balance of LM Split Escapement seems to oscillate on its own, without any visible intake of energy.
Under the balance, the triple-dial design of LM SE gives the time at 12 o’clock, the power reserve indication at 4 o’clock and the date at 8 o’clock.
MB&F says the LM Split Escapement is a celebration of its technique, which is executed completely by hand for all 72 pieces of the launch editions.
The LM Split Escapement was first launched in 2017 in four white gold ‘frosted’ editions, each limited to 18 pieces.
