MB&F Legacy Machine No.1, which launched late last year, landed both awards at the high-profile Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie de Genève, first picking up the Public Prize and then being named Best Men’s Watch just moments later.
Maximilian Büsser, founder of MB&F, was on hand to collect both awards – the first time in Grand Prix history that the same timepiece has been rewarded a prize both from the public and the professional jury.
The Legacy Machine No. 1 grabbed plenty of headlines when it was unveiled last year. It boasts an array of distinctive characteristics, including a three-dimensional movement, which brings the balance wheel to the top, and two independent time zones complications controlled by a single regulator.
Now in its 12th year, the Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie de Genève has grown to become one of the most eagerly awaited events on the watch industry calendar.
