I'm interested in hearing from some MB&F owners on this forum, especially Legacy Machine owners. Where does the watch fit into your rotation? Does it get a lot of attention, and is it positive or negative attention? How is value retention if you eventually parted ways with one? Durability? Anything else to note as an owner?
I was working with FPJ on a custom piece and started to get annoyed by how difficult it is to work with them and got cold feet. I had an unexpected opportunity to try on some Legacy Machines, was completely enraptured, and can't stop thinking about adding one of the more basic models to my collection to get my feet wet and see how I get on with the brand (e.g., LM101 or the Split Escapement). I love the relative rarity (I've never seen one in the wild outside of a watch meet up), but am a bit concerned about attracting too much attention (I generally like to fly under the radar and my "loudest" piece is a Zeitwerk which I generally only wear in more casual settings with friends despite it being my favorite watch by a mile).
Perhaps I'm just not capable of using the search function on this forum, but there seems to be very little MB&F related material on here. I'd love to hear from some owners.
