Conceived by one of the very earliest MB&F collaborators and Friends, Stephen McDonnell, LM Sequential EVO explodes the current limits of what we thought chronographs could do. Just like the 2015 Legacy Machine Perpetual, the last major Stephen McDonnell movement for MB&F, LM Sequential EVO involved a back-to-the-drawing-board approach towards our most basic assumptions on chronograph construction.
The dial plate of LM Sequential EVO, available in atomic orange or coal black, features two chronograph displays. Each of these chronograph displays can be started, stopped, and reset completely independently of each other, using the start/stop and reset pushers on their respective sides of the case.
As MB&F enters the last stretch of its second decade, it’s appropriate that someone who helped the brand come to life is instrumental in bringing it to a new level of horological legitimacy. The 20th calibre of MB&F is more than a recorder of time. It is a recorder of history — between Maximilian Büsser, the brand he created, and the watchmaker who was there from the beginning.more pictures in press section
The LM Sequential EVO movement incorporates two column-wheel chronographs and a revolutionary “Twinverter” binary switch, allowing multiple timing modes: independent timing, split-second, sequential (lap timer), and even a cumulative “chess match” mode – a combination never seen before in any previous wristwatch.
The EVO case in zirconium – lighter than stainless steel and more durable than titanium – features 80 metres of water resistance, a screw-down crown, an integrated rubber strap, galvanic black dials with Super-LumiNova, and the ‘FlexRing’ shock protection system. This makes the EVO case the smoothest wearing experience of any MB&F Machine, also ensuring that it will follow you through all aspects of an active life.
The fully integrated dual chronograph calibre developed for MB&F by Stephen McDonnell features the signature Legacy Machine flying balance wheel – with regulating screws and Breguet overcoil – and superlative hand finishing: internal bevel angles highlighting handcraft; polished bevels; Geneva waves; hand-made engravings; and darkened bridges (NAC finish).
Maximilian Büsser never said that MB&F would never make a chronograph. What he did say is that MB&F would never make a chronograph like all the other chronographs out there. Those who spoke the language of MB&F always knew what this meant. All good things come with time; better things come with more time and after 17 years of creating horological art, MB&F brings us something better.
Introducing Legacy Machine Sequential EVO, featuring the debut appearance of MB&F’s 20th movement, in the first chronograph wristwatch of MB&F. Indeed, it is also the first chronograph wristwatch of its kind.
