What do you get if you cross MB&F’s modern and radical mechanical watchmaking with Bulgari’s history of fine jewellery built on Italian romanticism?
The answer, unveiled today at Dubai Watch Week, is MB&F’s Legacy Ma- chine FlyingT Allegra. The 39mm across by 20mm high watch is a treat for all the senses.
It is built around the 100 hour power reserve MB&F’s LM FlyingT movement, with its flying tour-billon projecting out of its dial-plate, but the look and finish of the watch are all Bulgari.
The diamond-adorned case of this 20-piece limited edition (price on application) is entirely redesigned by Bulgari. Half are made in pink 18ct gold, the other half in white gold.
Bulgari’s gemsetting skills are deployed to counterbalance the cold precision and micro-mechanical complexity of the watch using tourmaline, tsavorite, diamonds, rubellite, amethyst, tanzanite and topaz.
The main dial and smaller sub dial that displays hours and minutes, are entirely paved with snow-set diamonds.
