The origin of LM FlyingT is attributed to the founder Maximilian Büsser’s thinking about the important role women play in his life. It was launched in 2019, showing a rich and complex femininity, choosing to embody elegance and vitality, rather than the soft traditions of women.
A soaring flying tourbillon protrudes from the dial like a pillar, driven by the energy generated by the sun-shaped rotor (100 hours of power reserve). Diamonds flicker on the upper tourbillon frame. The hours and minutes at 7 o’clock are indicated by a pair of serpentine hands on a 50° inclined subdial, which only the wearer can see; an intimate communication that highlights the personality of LM FlyingT. This powerful interpretation of women’s timepieces is the first of MB&F, which won the Prix de la Complication pour Dame at the 2019 Geneva Watch Grand Prix.
Three white gold and diamond versions are launched, and more LM FlyingT models will be launched in 2020; limited edition red gold and platinum diamonds are launched for the first time, with a guilloche pattern dial; a white gold diamond case with a dark blue lapis lazuli dial. In 2021, LM FlyingT added a new version with bright green malachite material.

Vertically stacked movement structure
The 60-second flying tourbillon is higher than the rest of the engine. This is a dynamic column that stops at the top of the sapphire crystal dome. Fixed on the top of the upper tourbillon frame is a diamond that rotates at the same time as the tourbillon.
The first MB&F inspired by women
The creative process behind Legacy Machine FlyingT began four years ago, when Maximilian Büsser began to consider creating something from the influence of women in his life.
Thoughtful time indicator
The time indicator is located at the 7 o’clock position of the dial, and the sub-dial is tilted 50° to face the wearer. The message is subtle but clear: no matter who the owners of LM FlyingT are, their time belongs to them and not to anyone else.
Even the most unpredictable and boldest life, when viewed from a distance, will form patterns and fall into a loop. For Maximilian Büsser and MB&F, creative energy takes a seven-year cycle. MB&F was founded 14 years ago, opening up a new path of watchmaking exploration, bringing an evolution of innovative vision for the founders and the company.
The creative process behind LM FlyingT started when Maximilian Büsser started thinking about creating something from the influence of women in his life: I created it for myself. But at some point, I was eager to create something for the women in my family. I have been influenced by them all my life, so I challenge myself to do something for them. “
“I hope that LM FlyingT has the epitome of femininity, which is reflected in the women in my life, especially my mother. It must combine supreme elegance with immense vitality. The cylindrical structure of the flying tourbillon is very important to me. It’s very important because I feel very strongly that women are the backbone of human beings. The sun-shaped rotor has another meaning. It incorporates life-giving elements and is a source of food that attracts and surrounds us.” 1:1 Quality Replica wathes
