MB&F Certified Pre-Owned

LM101 WHITE GOLD

First launched in 2014, the Legacy Machine 101 series focuses on the essentials of a mechanical wristwatch, contained in one of MB&F’s most elegant Machines with a case diameter of 40mm.

This LM101 in 18k white gold is one of the first LM101 editions launched.

As you would expect, our curated MB&F Certified Pre-Owned timepieces go through a full check-up at our workshop in Geneva, where our 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.

Local customs duties and other taxes applicable in the country of delivery are borne by the buyer.

Description

But in true MB&F fashion, an unconventional, 3-dimensional “flying” balance wheel, which has become the signature of the Legacy Machine collection.

LM101 WHITE GOLD

The Creator

Maximilian Büsser and Friends

After decades of conforming 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 independent 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.
