MB&F LM Split Escapement Blue

As buyers and collectors seek rare and aristocratic timepieces, horologists are responding with expectation-shattering designs…

The MB&F LM Split Escapement Blue is one of the most stylish ways to spend US$79,000. With a limited run of only 18 units, the watch is crafted from 18k white gold with a striking blue frosted dial and a sapphire crystal, presented on a hand-stitched alligator strap. Far more than an interesting mechanical design, MB&F have created a three-dimensional sculpture using the textured blue background to accentuate the contrasting features that appear to float above the face. It begs to be observed from multiple angles in order to fully appreciate the complexity and balance between serious luxury and a more playful side expressed via the gorgeous blue dial.
