A New model Legacy Machines by MB & F: golden epoch of horology

Kari Voutilainen, Maximilian Büsser and Jean-François MojonThe new model Legacy Machines - it's completely different watch that does not fit into the accepted framework and concept of the avant-garde watchmaking company Maximilian Büsser & Friends (MB & F). The source of inspiration for the creation of this model is obvious: the "golden epoch of watchmaking." It was at this time, MB & F could create such a watch! This was the main idea of creating such a timepiece; it's a sort of time travel, of which many people have dreamt since childhood. "I feel now like a schizophrenic" – said Büsser about his new "child", which is decidedly different from all the timers created by Büsser. "The wrist watch Legacy Machines became the founder of a new watch ‘family’ of MB & F”. “This is another way of understanding the mechanism of three-dimensional" - continues Büsser - "even when it is now clear that there are a lot more potential customers of this watches, it does not mean that it was the reason for the creation of this watch." According to Büsser after exhibition Baselworld 2011, at which he presented a prototype model, Legacy Machines, it just overwhelmed with orders for the next 4 years. It is estimated by Büsser, his small company, which has a staff of ten employees, are able to produce about 70 LM1 a year.
As noted above, a source of inspiration for those hours served as a "golden epoch" in the watch industry: it was the 19th century. "It was the industrial era in which the reliability and accuracy have become an art form. It was followed by a time when the wizard tried to convince people the pride in the work of art. If I live in that time what I would have served as an inspiration for me? Jules Verne, the world exhibitions, and the huge metal bridge a-la Tour Eiffel. That is a three-dimensional mechanism 100 years ago ", - commented Büsser. Büsser enlisted some friends to translate his ideas into practice. "I turned to Jean-François Mojon, who worked on the MCT. However, for the 19th century, I also had to go to Kari. Kari Voutilainen is one of the most famous independent watch-makers of our time, respectively, one of the busiest. Despite this, he received a request Büsser, after he learned that the project Legacy Machines is almost ready. According to Büsser, while working with Kari, he learned more than in all my 20 years of experience in watchmaking. Jean-Francois and his team have developed a hand-wound caliber, while Kari took up the appearance of the watch and the final version of the mechanism. Mechanism proudly adorns the names of its two creators.
The main feature of the watch is a 14Legacy Machines millimeter balance wheel which oscillates between two dials, each of which displays a certain time zone and can be configured independently of each other. LM1 model has a power reserve of 45 hours, provided that only one coils spring. The complex case consists of a total of 65 individual pieces and is available in versions with red or white gold. The case diameter is 44 mm, height - 16 mm. The dial is covered by the durable domed sapphire crystal, which fits under the balance wheel with the oscillation frequency of 18.000 pc / h. Mechanism exhibits an excellent craftsmanship in the style of 19th - century. "The creation of this watch was the limit imagination and an incredible adventure for me" - described the process of creating the watch Legacy Machines Büsser. The purchase of these amazing watches will be a real dream which comes true, if there is 79,000 Swiss francs in your pocket.

Rebellious individualism is an incredibly powerful creative force. It is a force that has been responsible for some of if not all the greatest art in history. Art often thrives under adversity, so perhaps it should come as no surprise that during WW2, artists found their canvases in unusual places such as on the nose cones of aircraft.
