MB&F Legacy Machine Split Escapement EVO Titanium Pastel Blue & Beverly Hills

MB&F has launched two new EVO editions of the Legacy Machine Split Escapement.

The first editions of the LM Split Escapement were presented in MB&F’s classic Legacy Machine case. This series now offers two new models with the sporty EVO case.

MB&F Legacy Machine Split Escapement EVO Titanium Pastel Blue

The first LM Split Escapement EVO model comes in grade-5 titanium case with an icy blue base plate and slate grey dial and opened counters. The special darkened treatment on the movement side creates heightened contrast between the wheels, the rhodium-plated barrels and the rose gold details.

The second edition is the first of a series of limited editions that will be reserved exclusively for the MB&F LABs – a new retail format building on the success of MB&F’s M.A.D. Galleries, combining MB&F timepieces with a limited number of art pieces, but adapted to spaces not quite large enough to host a full-fledged M.A.D. Gallery.

MB&F Legacy Machine Split Escapement EVO Titanium Beverly Hills edition

This year, the brand is opening MB&F LABs in Paris, Singapore and Beverly Hills– with this edition having been designed exclusively for the one on Los Angeles’ Rodeo Drive.

The Beverly Hills MB&F LAB is managed by the renowned American watch retailer Westime, who has not only been a partner of the brand since the very beginning, but is also one of the first to open an MB&F LAB.
