The mb&f legacy machine perpetual calendar rose gold replica watch processor utilises
a default 28-day month and adds extra days as required.
This means that each month always has the exact number
of days required;
A new horological machine presented by MB&F. LM Perpetual watch features the traditional complications shown in the artistic way.
The fact that the new complication looks sensational and
can be fully appreciated dial-side is just one of the many benefits offered by the new movement, controlled by a
mechanical processor (patent pending). LM Perpetual features a fully integrated 581-component
calibre − no module, no base movement − with a
revolutionary new system for mb&f legacy machine replica the number of days
in each month. And it holistically reinterprets the aesthetics
of the perpetual calendar by placing the full complication
on dial-free display underneath a spectacular suspended balance.
The perpetual calendar is one of the great traditional
complications, calculating the apparently random complexity
of the varying numbers of days in each month − including
the 29 days in February during leap years. But traditional
perpetual calendars do have a few drawbacks: dates can
skip; they are relatively easy to damage if adjusted while
the date is changing; and the complications are usually
compromises of modules powered by base movements.
The fully integrated, purpose-built movement of Legacy
Machine Perpetual has been designed from scratch for
trouble-free use: no more skipping dates or jamming gears,
and the adjuster pushers automatically deactivate when the
calendar changes, so no problems there either!
LM Perpetual turns the traditional perpetual calendar system
on its head by using a “mechanical processor” instead of
the conventional space-consuming grand levier (big lever)
system architecture.there is no fast-forwarding or skipping
redundant days. And while the leap year can only be set on
traditional perpetual calendars by scrolling through up to
47 months, LM Perpetual has a dedicated quickset pusher
to adjust the year.
With its open dial revealing the full complication and
suspended balance, it’s the harmonious mechanical
beauty of LM Perpetual that really steals the show. And
in an interesting technical twist, that eye-catching balance
hovering on high is connected to the escapement on the
back of the movement by what is likely to be the world’s
longest balance staff.
Using an innovative system developed especially for Legacy
Machine Perpetual, the subdials appear to “float” above the
movement with no visible attachments. The skeletonised
subdials rest on hidden studs, which is technically impossible
with traditional mb&f replica watches perpetual calendar mechanisms because
they would block the movement of the grand levier.
Taking a clockwise tour of the dial, at 12 o’clock we see the
hours and minutes nestled between the elegant arches of
the balance; day of the week at 3 o’clock, power reserve
indicator at 4 o’clock, month at 6 o’clock, retrograde leap
year indicator at 7 o’clock, and date at 9 o’clock.
Legacy Machine Perpetual is limited to 25 pieces (red gold) and 25 pieces (platinum)
