LM1 Xia Hang / MB&F


MB&F has teamed with Chinese artist Xia Hang to create an intriguing and animated edition of MB&F’s Legacy Machine 1 (LM1). This watch features a mechanically animated power reserve that MB&F describes as an emotional metaphor for watch collectors. That is, when a mechanical watch is wound, life/energy is pumped into it. In the same way, Xia Hang designed a little articulating creature on operates as the power reserve on the dial of Legacy Machine 1. Part-alien, part-baby, when one winds the LM1 Xia Hang (bringing life/energy into it), the creature rises. As the power reserve diminishes, the little man gradually slumps over, until his head almost hits the ground…time to rewind and breathe life back into him. LM1 Xia Hang is two limited editions of 12 pieces each, in red or white gold, priced at CHF99,000 per (about US$110,000). Each piece is accompanied by a pair of full-size (approximately 15cm / 6” high) sculptures of Mr. Up and Mr. Down in polished stainless steel and signed by the artist. — via Perpetuelle
