MB&F Legacy Machine FlyingT gets a Tiger Eye
By SENATUS Editor | 3 November 2022

MB&F's Legacy Machine FlyingT, its first-ever Machine inspired by the women in founder Max Busser's family, is notable as well for having won the prize for Best Ladies’ Complication at the 2019 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.

The collection includes diamond-set versions in white gold, guilloché dial editions in red gold and platinum, and the ‘FlyingT Allegra’ - a collaboration with Bulgari. There have also been gemstone editions, with Lapis Lazuli in 2020 and Malachite in 2021.

This year, a Tiger Eye edition joins the growing collection, featuring a dial plate and subdial in the golden brown gemstone, in an 18k yellow gold case set with diamonds.

Interestingly, the tiger eye in some cultures is believed to ward off the evil eye. Going back to ancient times, Roman soldiers wore engraved tiger eye as an amulet to protect them in battle.

Powering this new edition, the towering vertical structure of the FlyingT automatic movement, offering 100 hours of power reserve - with automatic winding ensured by the red gold sun-shaped rotor - and topped by a 60-second flying tourbillon. The time is displayed on a tilted subdial placed at 7 o’clock visible only to the wearer of the watch, underlining the personal nature of the LM FlyingT.
