Complex Made Simple

MB&F goes a step further in classic watchmaking journey

Limited editions are now available at Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons

MB&F, a Swiss watch manufacturer founded by Maximilian Büsser, amplifies its Legacy Machine 101 timepiece – the most essential expression of mechanical watchmaking first presented in 2014 – with a traditional finishing technique which goes back to the late 18th century.

With the launch of LM101 ‘Frost’ limited edition, MB&F continues to mark its name in the watchmaking industry.

Legacy Machine 101 embodies and accentuates what is essential in a wristwatch: the balance wheel for regulating precision; a power reserve indicator, which indicates when it needs to be next wound; and the time.

With the new ‘Frost’ limited editions, those essential LM101 elements now contrast magnificently against the backdrop of the frosted gold dial, which is actually the top plate of the movement. Additional contrast is provided by Frost’s highly polished bezel and lugs, which make the matte surface of the frosted dial really pop.

Visually, LM101 Frost is dominated by the monumental suspended balance wheel, now rhodium plated so that it stands out even more. Two pristine, white subdials hover just above the fine frosted movement top plate: contrasting blued-gold hands display hours and minutes at the top right, while the 45-hour power reserve indicator is displayed below.

While award-winning independent watchmaker Kari Voutilainen took responsibility for the movement’s fine finishing and fidelity to the horological past, its architecture and construction were developed in-house by MB&F.

LM101 ‘Frost’ is a limited edition of 33 pieces in red gold and – for the first time at MB&F – 18 pieces in yellow gold.

MB&F collections are available at select Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons store.
