First launched in 2013 in red gold, white gold, and Platinum, the Legacy Machine No.2 timepiece series is completed today with an LM2 Titanium limited edition.

For the first 18 pieces of this very limited edition, the changes go beyond the grade 5 titanium; the most apparent feature is undoubtedly the striking, beautiful vivid blue-greenish dial, obtained thanks to the same chemical vapor deposition technique used for the very popular LM1 M.A.D. Dubai.

Look a bit further, and you’ll notice more modifications: the dual “flying” balance wheels are now secured by sleek, rounded bridges, polished to a mirror finish. Just like the polished bezel, which loses its previous brushed finish. Last but not least, turn the LM2 Titanium on its side, and you’ll see that the case is a full millimeter slimmer.

Inside the LM2 Titanium, the dual regulator movement conceived for MB&F by award-winning watchmakers Jean-François Mojon and Kari Voutilainen. Two fully independent balance wheels and escapements, each beating at its rate, and a planetary differential, which continuously averages out the two rates to drive the hours and minutes.
