MB&F, Max Busser and Friends, is a unique brand.  Their goal is to bring together watchmaking and design masterminds to create horological masterpieces.  In their short existence, they have proven that this passion project has certain importance in the watch world.  Their latest piece, the LM1 Silberstein, brings in another watch friend, Alain Silberstein, to help create another contemporary masterpiece.  Alain Silberstein is known in the watch world for his colorful and playful watch designs, and the LM1 has more than just his name all over it.

Twelve pieces of each of the three metals that cast this case, rose gold, titanium, and black PVD titanium, act as a canvas for Silberstein.  The base of this piece is a mainstay piece in the MB&F line, the Legacy Machine.  Silberstein added his colorful geometric accents making his influence immediately recognizable.  Each metal contrasts differently with Silberstein’s colorful additions making for three unique limited edition pieces.  Another Silberstein touch truly embodies the goal of MB&F, engraved on the case is the quote “Le vrai bonheur est d’avoir sa passion pour métier” which translates to “making a profession of your passion is true happiness.”  This quote could not ring more true for both MB&F and Silberstein.

The MB&F Legacy Machine is already a special timepiece.  With its three dimensional movement, dual time complication, and domed crystal encapsulating it all, this is a masterpiece more than a watch.  Alain Silberstein took this amazing opportunity of using the Legacy Machine as his canvas to create a timepiece that embodied both the brands goals in watchmaking and his own.  The LM1 Silberstein is a product of passion.
