Reading Time: 2 minutes

MB&F announced at the beginning of March their first ladies watch – the Legacy Machine FlyingT. I was thrilled to find the news and curious to see it in person. I got my chance during the Baselworld. And I was not disappointed. I mean, I already knew about it from the press release. But meet it in the wild was a glamorous experience. Since the press release was so well written, I found myself in the position that my words are not that meaningful. So I will just stick to make some personal comments in the caption of the images. Enjoy!

MB&F Legacy Machine FlyingT

The FlyingT is one of the latest addition in the Legacy Machine Collection. It was designed and intended as a lady’s watch but it seems a lot of gentlemen were impressed by it. Below, a short hands-on clip from Baselworld 2019.

I would recommend opening the pictures on a bigger screen for a better view of the details.
