For a seasoned executive like Maximilian Büsser, you would not expect that he would be fazed by the development of a new watch. After all, he is a former managing director of Harry Winston Rare Timepieces and for the past 14 years he has been shaping his company, MB&F, into a leading light of the independent watchmaking world.
So how hard could it be to create the house’s first watch for women?
“It was horrendously difficult,” Mr. Büsser said in an interview during a visit to London last month. “First of all, I have no idea what a woman wants.”
The timepiece was also a very personal project, being a homage to his mother, Dinoo, who died last year; his wife, Tiffany; and two daughters, now 6 and 2. He said he wanted the watch to reflect what he loved most about his mother and his wife: “Full of crazy energy but at the same time super elegant.”
The result, after more than three years’ work, was the Legacy Machine FlyingT, which embodies the avant-garde, mechanical sculpture look for which MB&F is known. It was introduced online earlier this month and is being presented at the Baselworld fair this week.
The automatic watch features an unusually high sapphire dome that houses a vertically stacked movement topped with a flying tourbillon. Resting at the 7 o’clock position is a small dial displaying the hour and minutes, and which is inclined at 50 degrees, so it can be read only by the wearer (“The time is a gift, only for her,” Mr. Büsser said). It has a 100-hour power reserve, and the underside features an 18-karat gold rotor in a sculpted sun motif.
As usual, the watch is a limited edition: MB&F will make only 35 pieces a year.
Mr. Büsser said his aim was to remove all the bridges and keep only the “elegant, mobile parts” — the wheels and escapement — to create a movement that was vertical, like a tower. Or a pillar, he said, like the women in his life. “I like that allegory,” he added. “Now, is it feminine? I have no idea.”
What is arguably feminine, however, is the use of diamonds. There are three models, all of which have a diamond-encrusted case and a small diamond topping the flying tourbillon. The original version comes with a stark black lacquer dial plate (5,000), while a pavé version features 485 stones totaling 2.8 carats on the dial plate (5,000). And a baguette-cut diamond design (5,000) has a dial plate with 294 stones totaling 11 carats.
The diamonds were intended to make the FlyingT a timepiece dedicated to women. But, Mr. Büsser said, there was what he called an “enormous debate” within the company about using stones — partly because his wife does not wear diamonds.
And her reaction? “She hasn’t seen it yet!” he said.
“Maybe my wife will go, ‘That’s naff,’” he added, deadpan. “It’s been very complicated emotionally to come out with this piece.”B:
