Introducing MB&F Has the Coolest Regulators at Geneva Watch Days - They Want to Show It Off
LM Split Escapement EVO is MB&F's approach to "simple and sporty" design briefs.
Hello from Geneva! I came to Switzerland to cover the third annual Geneva Watch Days exhibition, a small Swiss industrial trade show that emerged in 2020 at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, when the traditional trade show calendar was in complete disarray. Unfortunately, we were unable to attend the first two iterations of the show due to travel restrictions due to the pandemic, so I'm excited to officially cover the show's third trip around the sun from Geneva. First up is MB&F, which has released a pair of tantalizing new colorways in the LM Split Escapement collection.
The LM split escapement can well be considered the fifth generation of the MB&F Legacy Machine family. When first released in 2017, it was the fifth iteration of the Legacy Machine concept after the LM1, LM2, LM101 and Legacy Machine Perpetual Calendar. However, it could also accurately be considered a back-to-basics moment for the inventive and quirky Swiss watch company.
