MB&F Unveils Legacy Machine FlyingT Malachite for Women

The Legacy Machine FlyingT was the first-ever Machine dedicated to women – a first that was rewarded by a very warm welcome from the watchmaking world, including the prize for Best Ladies’ Complication at the 2019 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. The launch versions in 18k white gold were joined last year by limited editions in red gold and platinum, and then a Lapis Lazuli edition featuring a dial in the deep blue stone. At the time, MB&F explained that this inaugurated a series of gemstone editions, which would be announced once a year.

Today, continuing on this fresh tradition, MB&F announced the Legacy Machine FlyingT Malachite, featuring a dial plate and subdial in the vibrant green gemstone, in an 18K white gold case set with diamonds.

The natural bands you find in Malachite vary randomly from light to dark green. As always with gemstones, it has associated virtues: among them, good health including protection from lightning! During the Middle Ages, it was apparently customary to wear it engraved with a figure of the Sun – just like the Sun-shaped winding rotor of the FlyingT.

Powering this new edition, the towering vertical structure of the FlyingT automatic movement offers 100 hours of power reserve and is 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 Legacy Machine FlyingT.

MB&F Legacy Machine FlyingT Malachite retails for SGD 192,000. For more information, visit thehourglass.com.
