MB&F LM1 Silberstein: Getting Creative With Tradition
MB&F announced the release of a very special project with design superstar Alain Silberstein. The LM1 Silberstein is the Legacy Machine No. 1 reimagined.
It’s playful, yet sophisticated, paying respects to traditional watchmaking. The concave, satellite dish-style subdials display the time in other time zones. A hypnotizing flying balance wheel is suspended above the dial thanks to a nearly invisible bridge formed out of sapphire crystal. The development of this bridge technology consumed almost 2 years of design time.
This year at Baselworld, it seems as if many brands were experimenting with sapphire as a case material. It’s notable to mention that Alain Silberstein was the first watch designer to create a sapphire case a few years ago.
You’ll wonder what that lever-like mechanism is at 6:00. It is the power reserve indicator! It also happens to be constructed from Silberstein’s signature trademark sculpture and colors. Learn more about the MB&F caliber LM1 Silberstein movement here.
There are three configurations, limited to 12 pieces each: Grade 5 titanium, black PVD titanium, and 18K red gold. Learn more here.
