Official description

In human beings, the visible spectrum of light falls between red and violet, with infra-red and ultra-violet lying just beyond these two extremes. When we see the colour purple, what our eyes are actually taking in is the highest possible frequency of light that the human eye can perceive.

Legacy Machine No.2 also lies at the highest end of its horological spectrum. When it was first presented in 2013, it was one of the most forward-looking expressions of traditional mechanical watchmaking in the market. Even today, LM2 still occupies the end-zone of innovative horology, and a new version, presented with a purple dial of arresting visual depth, embodies this position.

Back in white gold, the material of one of its launch editions, LM2 frames its hypnotic engine in a case that is discreet yet precious. Following the sleeker balance bridges of the redesigned LM2 Titanium, the LM2 White Gold Purple offers a more elegant take on the original industrial aesthetic of the first LM2. The sunray-finished dial plate is given its purple hue via the process of chemical vapour deposition (CVD), which evenly coats the dial surface and gives it a multi-faceted colouration under different angles of light — ranging from a deep violet to an almost electric shade of plasma purple.
