Take it, crystal.
According to several top search results of Google “15th Anniversary Metal”, the traditional gift for the 15th anniversary is crystal. For the 15th time of copy MB&F, they chose to add some zirconium between two sapphires to make their latest limited edition stunner, Legacy Machine Perpetual EVO. The brand’s incredible perpetual calendar is absolutely young, EVO is sporty, colorful, and very, very limited.
When it comes to MB&F’s Legacy Machines, the general method is to interpret classic watchmaking craftsmanship through modern clothing like MB&F. Therefore, many of LM’s works are more inclined to the general field of haute horology, rather than the real world of sports watches. With the brand-new Legacy Machine Perpetual EVO, MB&F seems to be breaking the difference by interpreting the sporty theme of its lovely Legacy Machine Perpetual launched in 2015.
Like almost all cars that get the “evo” version, the Legacy Machine Perpetual EVO has some special modifications compared to the standard model. In EVO, we found a zircon case, a rubber strap, a screw-in crown, and a QP movement version of MB&F equipped with a new integrated anti-vibration system called “FlexRing”. FlexRing is described as “a ring-shaped shock absorber installed between the case and the movement”, helping to protect the 581 components of this very complex movement from the harsh tests of a more active lifestyle.
Although not common in the watchmaking industry, this is not the first time MB&F has used zirconium, a metal that is lighter than steel and more wear-resistant than titanium. MB&F used this material in the 10-piece limited edition HM3 Poison Dart Frog launched in 2012. From case materials to shock-proof and rubber straps, MB&F said that EVO is “the strongest machine ever” MB&F. “
The 44 x 17.5 mm size retains EVO’s precious metal siblings, but EVO has a new borderless design. Although the standard LM Perpetual has a curved bezel where the crystal intersects the case, the EVO crystal flows directly into the edge of the case, allowing extra light to enter the depth and edge of the 3D sports configuration. The extra light is well worth the thermal bonding of the case to the crystal, because the movement is worth seeing, especially for those who are lucky enough to get one of the more colorful versions.
Finally-I have covered this before-LM Perpetual EVO has a screw-in crown and 80 meters water resistance. This is the first time for any MB&F (Aquapod is waterproof to 50 meters), when you consider the complexity of providing considerable water resistance with multiple perpetual calendar correctors, I think this is A noteworthy part of the MB&F decision is also part of ensuring that EVO is not just a new color or treatment for the current model. replica watches for sale
Among all the watches where MB&F can be adjusted to be more sporty, Legacy Machine Perpetual must represent one of the greater challenges. The final result, from spirit to execution, feels very much in line with the spirit of MB&F and how far it has been since its introduction in 2005 . EVO is a gift for collectors, paying tribute to the sunshine and smile MB&F has brought to the watch industry over the past 15 years. I only hope that those who are lucky enough to get EVO will not be afraid to become a little sporty.
