An incredibly fascinating machine, the MB&F's LM2 is a timepiece that was designed in collaboration with genius independent watchmakers Kari Voutilainen and Jean-François Mojon. The watch is incorporated with an unheard-of complication known as planetary differential, a system which allows two balance wheels to beat at their own natural rate with the differential supplying the average of the two completely independent frequencies. By adopting the differential system, the LM2 can provide the user with more accurate time keeping over longer years.
Decorated with the intriguing flying balance wheel design, finely finished with a lacquered dial disk and an alluring blue sunburst plate, the present LM2 is the symbol of great modern day watchmaking.
Please note MB&F has generously offer a complimentary service for the successful buyer of this watch within six months after purchase, including shipping fee of the watch to the MB&F atelier in Switzerland and an one-year warranty will also be provided.
