MB&F Legacy Machine 101 Features First In-house Movement

As a watch enthusiast, I understand the pain and pride behind developing an in-house movement. So this time around when MB&F announced their Legacy Machine 101, my interest piqued as it houses the very first movement developed entirely in-house by MB&F.
