The story begins (as so many do) with a woman. Legacy Machine FlyingT owes its genesis to founder Maximilian Büsser’s ruminations on the keystone roles that women have played in his life. Launched in the first months of 2019, LM FlyingT manifested a rich and complex femininity, choosing to embody elegance and vitality – a formidable resilience – over the softer conventions of womanhood.
A soaring flying tourbillon projects, column-like, from the dial plate, driven by energy generated by the sun-shaped rotor (power reserve of 100 hours). A diamond flashes atop the upper tourbillon cage. Dynamism and precisely engineered motion characterise LM FlyingT, which debuted in three white gold diamond-set editions. At the foot of the flying tourbillon, located at 7 o’clock, is a dial of white lacquer that displays the hours and minutes with a pair of blue serpentine hands. The dial is inclined at a 50° tilt so that the time can be read only by the wearer; an intimate communication that highlights the personal nature of the LM FlyingT.
