Leaving a legacy

The very first editions of Legacy Machine No.2 included a version in 18k red gold. Six years later, the LM2 Red Gold Blue is the last-ever LM2 to be crafted in this precious metal. Only 12 pieces make up this limited edition, distinguished from previous LM2s thanks to a deep blue dial plate. The stars of the LM2 are undoubtedly the dual ‘flying’ balance wheels. These two fully independent regulating systems, each beating at their own rate, are averaged out by the central planetary differential.
