Let’s go to a new Pitch Watch
After MB&F presented the Legacy Machine Perpetual for the first time in 2015, it is now launching the new LM Perpetual EVO in titanium or zirconium.
The LM Perpetual EVO, in addition to sporting a titanium or zirconium case, also presents some news and improvements, and starting with the case that comes with the same 44 mm diameter, the novelty that stands out more is the absence of the bezel, passing the domed sapphire crystal to be fused to the case thus increasing the area of the dial making it easier to read, the other two less pronounced innovations are the crown, which is now threaded, which results in an improvement in water resistance, now to an appreciable 80 meters, and the two flat rectangular pushers, which are now more elongated and now work with the double spring system, increasing the user’s comfort.
At dial level, the titanium variant comes with the PVD/CVD dial-plate in green, while the zirconium variants come in three color options – black, blue, and for the first time an atomic orange.
The other new addition to the dial is the Super-LumiNova filling of the hands and indices of the four sub-dials that provide real-time and the perpetual calendar thus enabling easy reading even in low light conditions. All models are offered with an integrated black rubber strap, with the exception of the black zirconium model which comes with a white rubber strap.
Inside there are also new improvements, starting with the new shock system “FlexRing” that protects the 581 components of its Caliber and also a “mechanical processor” which takes the default number of days in the month at 28 (because every month has at least 28 days) and then adds the extra days as required by each individual month, according to the brand.
The titanium variant is already available at the brand’s official stores and retailers for € 142,000 and is limited to 20 units produced per year.
