Gallery: Photography overkill with MB&F’s incredible Legacy Machine 101

We have a lot of respect for MB&F at Horology Middle East, and within the independent brand’s creative portfolio, the Legacy Machine 101 stands as one of our favorite pieces. We recently had the opportunity to spend some time with the white-gold and rose-golf references, and decided it was the perfect time to go crazy with our camera.

The Legacy Machine 101’s case is comprised of 35 components.

Introducing the MB&F LM1 Silberstein

Now in its 11th year, MB&F continues to dazzle horophiles around the globe with timepieces that quicken heartbeats. Today, the Horological Lab officially unveiled the LM1 Silberstein, and it is by far the most charming and interesting watch we’ve seen from the independent brand yet.

We reckon the LM1 Silberstein will be a hit with regional collectors thanks to its charming design traits, and the availability of titanium cases.

Hands-On: MB&F’s Legacy Machine 1 M.A.D. Dubai

2011 was a big year for MB&F. The independent brand opened its first M.A.D. Gallery (Geneva), and launched the Legacy Machine 1, which introduced the world to the new (at the time) Legacy Machine collection. Since that time MB&F has introduced several Legacy Machines, but today the brand is revisiting the LM1 with a limited edition model, which will be sold exclusively through the recently opened M.A.D. Gallery in Dubai. It’s called the Legacy Machine 1 M.A.D. Dubai, and it has one of the most beautiful watch dials we’ve ever seen.

Hands-On: MB&F Legacy Machine 101 Platinum

When it was launched in 2014, the Legacy Machine 101 was the first MB&F timepiece to carry a movement that was designed by the brand itself. It had – and still has – the most classic looks of any MB&F timepiece, and was (and still is) the brand’s most accessible wristwatch. In January of this year, ahead of SIHH, the independent watchmaker released a new model, and we had the good fortune to spend some time with it recently.

The floating balance wheel is a hallmark of the Legacy Machine collection.
