MB&F Certified Pre-Owned

LM101 Palladium

The LM101 Palladium edition was the first MB&F piece in palladium, a rare silvery-white metal. The naturally white colour of palladium contrasts with a new sunray dial, which varies between grey and shades of pale blue and green depending on the light.

This LM101 Palladium was limited to just 18 pieces; it is very rare to find one on the pre-owned market.

As you would expect, our curated MB&F Certified Pre-Owned timepieces go through a full check-up: at our workshop in Geneva, our own watchmakers clean, polish, check water resistance, movement functions, time regulation… If necessary, we restore using our own original parts. And we ship the piece to you anywhere in the world, free of charge. VAT not included in the price

Description


Legacy Machine 101 (LM101) was launched in 2014 and houses the very first movement developed entirely in-house by MB&F, with the participation of long-time Friend Kari Voutilainen – this initiated a long series of movements developed internally. LM101 embodies and accentuates the very essence of what is essential in a wristwatch: the balance wheel, which is responsible for regulating precision; how much power remains in the mainspring, which indicates when it needs to be next wound; and of course, the time.

The Creator

Maximilian Büsser and Friends

After decades confirming to the rules of corporate watchmaking, Max Büsser broke the chains and started a rebellion in 2005; a rebellion called MB&F - Maximilian Büsser & Friends.

MB&F is an artistic concept laboratory based around a simple idea: to assemble collectives of independant watchmaking professionals to develop radical watches - Horological or Legacy Machines. By nurturing teams of talented individuals, harnessing their passion and creativity and crediting each person's essential role, MB&F uses their synergy to become much greater than the sum of its parts. Respecting tradition, but never constrained by it, MB&F reinterprets traditional, high-quality watchmaking into three-dimensional kinetic sculptures.

While MB&F’s futuristic Horological Machines have a firm foundation in the very best of traditional horology, Büsser wanted to pay homage to that rich tradition by imagining the type of timepieces he might create if he had been born 100 years earlier, i.e. 1867 instead of 1967. This gave birth to the more classic Legacy Machine collection, initiated with Legacy Machine No.1.
