Mbf Lm101 Frost Legacy Machines Gold Watch

Watch Identifier: MB&F LM101 FROST

Mbf Lm101 Frost Legacy Machines Gold Watch

The amazing in-house engine responsible for indicating the time in MB&F’s beautiful Legacy Machine consists of 229 components, 23 of which are jewels. Other quantitative figures include a power reserve of 45 hours and a balance frequency of 18,000bph. These specs are found in every caliber LM101, but what distinguishes the model seen in this post is the very special frosted mainplate.

Instead of reinventing the iconic Legacy Machine, MB&F added a sophisticated touch of subtlety to what is already an entrancing and bold design. The LM101 now features its signature 14mm suspended balance wheel over a frosty 18K gold finish. The red gold pieces (51.RL.FW) are limited to 33, while there are only 18 available in yellow (51.YL.FW).

MB&F gives credit to 18th century watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet for inventing the process of frosting. This finish was originally used to protect dials and movements from oxidation. On the LM101, the movement is part of the dial and the frosting makes it impossible to overlook. The frosted background creates contrast between the highly polished components and communicates the concept of this watch with perfect clarity.

The case is constructed of 35 components that fit together to form a diameter of 40mm. Anti-reflective sapphire protects the top and bottom. The strap can be black or brown alligator with matching gold tang buckle.

Introduced on April 16, 2015. Hands-on video coming soon, please subscribe to our YouTube channel.
