Legacy Machine LM101 | white gold
The goal of the Legacy Machine LM101 was to create a tribute to fine and antique watchmaking of the past, and combine it with the forward-facing, creative finesse of MB&F. The nod to the past was largely achieved through the classical, round shape of the case, sized at 40mm, and movement finishing. The engravings, Geneva waves, internal beveled and polished angles and countersunk blued screws all highlight the superlative hand-finishing of traditional, 19th-century watchmaking.
That being said, MB&F’s progressive, avant-garde style is apparent, most notably through the unique central balance-wheel that has been placed in the front of the watch, floating above the movement and dial. The LM101, much like its ‘big brother’, the LM1, displays a large, 14 mm “flying” balance wheel with four traditional regulating screws, separating it from the manual-winding, single mainspring barrel movement beneath. The unique architecture of the Legacy Machine LM101 is emphasised through the high-domed sapphire crystal, coated with an anti-reflective material for a unique presence on the wrist.
Two pristine, white sub-dials are placed underneath: at the top right, hours and minutes are displayed by blued-gold hands, while the 45-hour power reserve indicator is displayed in a smaller, but similar subsidiary below. The dial is decorated with a sun-ray pattern, and engraved with the words "Legacy Machine".
MB&F’s harmonious relationship with many of haute-horology’s finest independent movement makers, coupled with careful choosing of its suppliers, has led to the development of visionary modern timepieces, celebrated equally for their exceptional design and mechanical brilliance. The Legacy Machine LM101’s entirely new in-house caliber, designed by Kari Voutilainen, rivals the very best the industry has to offer and represents a key inflection point in the brand’s evolution.
The watch has a power reserve of 45 hours and comes on its original black alligator strap, with matching white-gold tang buckle.
Viewings can be arranged in Central London by appointment.
