MB&F Watches FlyingT Tourbillon Baguette Diamonds Watch

The MB&F Watches Legacy Machine Flying T Tourbillon Baguette Diamonds Watch is, of course, an undeniably special watch. Maximilian Busser (Max Busser to some) set himself the challenge, for the first time in his life, of creating an MB&F watch not for himself, but for another, or others, an MB&F watch for women, particularly the women in his life. This was to be a first for him, and what the first watch for women it is. So good in fact, that not only connoisseurs of MB&F watches are talking about it. Everywhere from Geneva, to Dubai and London, all the talk is of The MB&F Watches Legacy Machine FlyingT Tourbillon Baguette Diamonds Watch. Maximilian Busser, and the ‘Friends’ that form MB&F Watch, including Serge Kriknoff, Eric Giroud, Mr Charris Yadigaroglou, Didier Dumas, David Lamy and others, fully set themselves a challenge.  

A women’s, limited edition flying tourbillon watch from  MB&F watches, bejewelled with baguette cut diamonds on the watch case, on the watch dial, the watch buckle, the watch crowns and the flying tourbillon itself. The MB&F Watches Legacy Machine FlyingT Tourbillon Baguette Diamonds Watch, as you might expect from the manufacturer responsible for the Legacy Machines of the MB&F Watches Legacy Machines Collection is a marvel of feminine beauty, as well as a piece of 3D, or three-dimensional kinetic art, which also told the time. The MB&F Watches Legacy Machine FlyingT Tourbillon Baguette Diamonds Watch is in actual fact one of three versions of the same watch, one with black lacquer dial and case with brilliant cut diamonds (originally available at CHF108,000 excluding VAT), the fully set brilliant-cut diamonds model. VAT) with black lacquer hours and minutes sub display dial,  and the full set baguette-cut diamonds model.

The design brief for the The MB&F Watches Legacy Machine FlyingT Tourbillon Baguette Diamonds Watch, and exactly what Max Busser,  Serge Kriknoff, Eric Giroud, Mr Charris Yadigaroglou, Didier Dumas, David Lamy and others wanted to achieve with it, meant the watch  would need its very own in house design caliber (calibre to some) escapement and movement, housed in an astonishing concoction of Red gold, white gold, black and white lacquer, sapphire crystal and brilliant cut or baguette cut diamonds. The MB&F Watches Legacy Machine FlyingT Tourbillon Baguette Diamonds Watch would be about as far from an Omega women’s watch as you could imagine, a watch that was sure to one day grace the halls of a Christie’s auction sale room.

The heart of the new MB&F Watches Legacy Machine FlyingT Tourbillon Baguette Diamonds Watch was to be the in house designed calibre escapement and movement, this time arranged on a vertical axis, with the one minute flying tourbillon placed center stage beneath the highly domed dial that the vertical orientation the new watch movement necessitated, much like a dancing ballerina, to quote Max Busser himself. The MB&F Watches Legacy Machine Flying T Tourbillon Baguette Diamonds Watch’s in house caliber movement, an automatic manual winding movement, by the way, is powered by a three-dimensional sun winding rotor, with sun shaped rotor, produced in a mixture of 18K (18 karats) 5N+ red gold, titanium and platinum. The vertical arrangement and layout of the watch movement permit the tourbillon to stand proud of the dial plate across the plate, a counterweight beneath the tourbillon carriage solving the problem of an upper tourbillon carriage with more weight to one side than the other. These are the solutions which permit the of the limited edition watch’s one-minute flying tourbillon to be placed centre stage beneath the domed sapphire crystal that forms the upper part of the titanium, white gold and platinum watch case of the MB&F Watches Legacy Machine FlyingT Tourbillon Baguette Diamond Watch.  The hours and minutes display are much more subtle, located at the 7 o’clock position against a sea of baguette white lacquer dial, the dial face for hours and minutes itself in white lacquer, angled to make this a personal view of the time, with serpentine hands and classic Roman numerals for the hour indicators. With fine symmetry, the Legacy Machine FlyingT Tourbillon Baguette Cut Diamond Watch’s two flanks each house a diamond set crown, with winding on that to the left and that to the right of the dial side of the case reserved for setting the time. The dial plate case, and the literally hundreds of baguette cut diamonds which adorn it, really is a joy to behold. A perfect finishing touch to the one-minute flying tourbillon is a further, single diamond stone which sits on top of the upper tourbillon cage itself. The use of baguette diamonds and stones, forming a natural backdrop within the white gold case, somehow do not quite manage to upstage the central one-minute flying tourbillon, and never appear ostentatious. To the back the watch case, the MB&F Watches Legacy Machine FlyingT Tourbillon Baguette Diamond Watch features a large sun motif, neatly mirroring that found on the automatic winding watch movement’s 3D (three dimensional) winding rotor assembly. The MB&F Watches FlyingT Tourbillon Baguette Diamond Watch is finished with calf or alligator leather strap depending on a model complete with an 18K (18 karats) white gold pin buckle, once again set with diamond stones.

While the work of Max Busser,  Serge Kriknoff, Eric Giroud, Mr Charris Yadigaroglou, Didier Dumas, David Lamy and the others at MB&F Watches, including watches such as those in the MB&F, Watches Legacy Machine Collection, have also become talking points in the watch buying capitals of London, Geneva and Dubai, the MB&F Watches Legacy Machine FlyingT Tourbillon Baguette Diamond Watch is something very different to anything as yet produced by the manufacturer. This is horological excellence, and a first for the brand in its production of the first watch for women, as well as a thing of rare beauty. The level of interest in this horological marvel is such that there is no need to google the name MB&F anymore.
