Although MB&F was founded on the avant-garde performance of its Horological Machines case, the brand has an equally successful and more traditional traditional round case watch series Legacy Machines (LM).
It’s hard to believe, but the LM series is now ten years old (and MB&F itself is almost 16 years old). To commemorate the 10th anniversary of LM, MB&F created the ultimate version of LM1, which is the launch of this series of watches.
The abbreviation of Legacy Machine X-the last letter is the Roman letter “10”-LMX combines various elements of watches in the past ten years and some new ideas to produce a familiar but brand new “machine.” So it has the familiar twin dials with two time zones, but it is now tilted. Similarly, LMX has a vertical power reserve indicator, but now it is more refined with a spherical display. All of this is contained in a thinner case, similar to the case first seen on the LM Thunderdome three-axis tourbillon.
Compared with the original LM1, the LMX has indeed been significantly upgraded from the inside to the outside, with a more fashionable style, including a more three-dimensional dial, and a newly developed three-winding movement with a one-week power reserve. From most perspectives, LMX is an excellent evolution of the original LM concept-and it is an impressive watch in its own right-but it really is not as risky as a milestone project.
Several details of LMX are eye-catching. As the dual dial tilts toward the wearer, more mechanical devices on the dial are revealed-this shows that MB&F is good at creating a dynamic mechanical structure with a simple style. Coupled with a few symmetrical and refined steel bridges, there are many things to appreciate on the dial.
One of the most attractive elements of the dial is the hemispherical power reserve, which doubles as the day of the week. But it is small enough to be difficult to read, and a bit cumbersome: indicating the date means that the watch must be wound on a specific date in order to coordinate the indicator with the calendar.

However, the size of the LMX is similar to that of the LM1, which means that there are more complicated mechanical devices in a similar space. This achievement is remarkable and is enhanced by the slimness of the watch. Because its strap is very narrow—most of its height is huge crystals—LMX feels very thin.
All the improved prices are slightly higher than the original price, the starting price of the titanium alloy LMX is 112,000 US dollars, and the starting price of the pink gold model is 128,000 US dollars. In other words, considering inflation and additional functions, this is a reasonable increase.
The hemispherical power reserve indicator is located on both sides, can display the day of the week or the remaining power reserve days, and can be rotated according to the wearer’s preference.
Although functionally similar to LM1, LMX is indeed a decade ahead of LM1. It is powered by a novel movement designed to reveal more mechanical devices on the dial while having a longer power reserve and maintaining the size of the case. fake luxury watches
First of all, the side of the dial is designed to show its finishing, which is one of the focal points of the LM series, which is inspired by the classic watchmaking craftsmanship of the 19th century.
Perhaps the most eye-catching part of this building is the steel bridge-all perfectly completed. Take the pair of steel bridges behind each dual dial as an example. Although they are small, they are highly polished and rounded on the top surface, with straight-grained sides and inlaid with bowl-shaped golden sleeves.
On the back, the layout is also very unusual. Unlike the traditional pocket watch style of the LM series, the movement structure is absolutely modern. It has three barrels around the central ratchet, which contains an unusual blue three-arm click spring, which provides a power reserve of up to 7 days, a significant increase over the 45 hours of the LM1. The movement is much more advanced than the LM1, while maintaining the 44 mm diameter of the LM1, proving its ingenious construction. cheap replica watches
