Welcome to a new side of MB&F. This new watch is not a new Horological Machine. It does not exist as part of any current collection from the forward thinking brand. Rather, this is the first watch in MB&F’s new product family – this is the Legacy Machine 1 (LM1). The Legacy Machine watches will exist as the other side of MB&F. Their products from now on will either fall into the Horological Machine range or the Legacy Machine range. Retaining the MB&F DNA all around, these watch collections will be like family members separated by 100 years of history.
For Max Busser of MB&F, the Horological Machine collection of watches are extensions of the things that inspired him while growing up. Things such as race cars, planes, and spaceships. The Legacy Machines use this same idea, but under the fantasy assumption that Max was born 100 years earlier. The idea makes sense when he talks about it. Busser is talented at delivering his ideas and motives so naturally you’d believe them to be part of his overall life plan. Spoken from anyone else’s mouth, this concept might make you scratch your head. So please, imagine if you will a Max Busser born in the late 19th century and focused on the future, as see by the world then. What would inspire him? Well according to Busser it would be things such as the Eiffel tower and people such as Jules Verne. This watch is about retro-futurism.
