Live now. A Legacy Machine Pereptual Calendar, resulting from collaboration between @mbandf and the Irish watchmaker and movement prototypist, Stephen McDonnell. In many ways MB&F reinvented the idea of the perpetual calendar in this watch, building on ideas seen in earlier examples of the Legacy Machine series. Just as the balance is raised above the dial in the LM1, the idea was to elevate the perpetual calendar displays above the mainplate. This required MB&F and Stephen McDonnell to replace the complex and delicate lever system for a series of stacked gears. Further to this, the calibre introduced a default length of 28-day months, as opposed to the traditional use of 31 days. This makes date switches more reliable, and ensures each month switches at the correct number of days. The calibre also deactivates the correctors in adjustment periods, to spare the movement from accidental damage by its user. In its aesthetics, the LM3 follows the brand’s aesthetic codes, and the finishing of the movement was devised by none other than @voutilainenwatches. This pre-owned example is accompanied by its original box, papers and warranty card (signed November 2017), and remains in excellent condition, with little sign of wear. We offer a complimentary service from the brand, within twelve months of purchase. Available now.
