|Name:||Legacy Machine FlyingT Black Lacquer|
Introduced in 2019, the Legacy Machine FlyingT, is the first of MB&F’s three-dimensional horological art pieces dedicated to women.
The FlyingT features a round case with a steeply cambered bezel and slender, elongated lugs. A high, extravagantly convex dome of sapphire crystal rises from the bezel. Beneath the dome, a subtly curved dial plate, liquidly black with layers of stretched lacquer or glittering with blazing white diamonds. An asymmetric ventricular opening in the dial plate frames the heart of the LM FlyingT engine – a cinematic flying tour - billon that beats at a serene rate of 2.5Hz (18,000vph). The tourbillon projects high above the rest of the engine, a kinetic, dynamic column that stops just short of the apex of the sapphire crystal dome. Affixed to the top of the upper tourbillon cage is a single large diamond that rotates simultaneously with the flying tourbillon, emitting the fiery brilliance of the very best quality stones.
