MB&F & Bulgari present a precious haute horlogerie creation

The story of the collaboration between Bulgari and MB&F started off as an unlikely connection that joined forces to create the LM FlyingT Allegra – a single, homogeneous and sophisticated luxury watch

November 30, 2021: Maximilian Büsser, or MB&F for short, is known for their radical, complex and mechanical timepieces. Ten years ago, they previously collaborated with Parisian jewellery house Boucheron to create “JwlryMachine” and today it comes as no surprise that they return to their original design roots with a stunning new collaboration with Bulgari. 

The Rome-based Maison whose coloured gems express Mediterranean warmth and exuberance has joined forces with MB&F to launch the LM FlyingT Allegra, available in white or rose gold, featuring a whirlwind of coloured gemstones set against a backdrop of snow-set diamonds.

The watch’s beauty lies in its unusual construction, bearing volumes that feature a futuristic, UFO-like profile intentionally created to mimic the movement of coloured gems that surround the central timepiece. Available in a limited edition of 20 pieces each in rose gold and white gold versions, Bulgari’s jewellers have carefully selected tourmaline, amethyst, topaz, tsavorites and other sought-after gems which resulted in the exceptional composition forming a full circle around the movement.

The gems surrounding the time piece counterbalance the cold precision and micromechanical complexity of the movement by instilling the Roman jeweller’s warm and exuberant signature touch. Suited for buyers with an acute eye for gemmology or suave visual eye, the LM FlyingT Allegra captures a unique selling point enticing all types of consumers.
