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.

This highly-rated Under Armour unisex athletic backpack is $14 off for Prime Day
Under Armour Hustle 5 unisex backpack Prime Day deal

Backpacks can be hit or miss. Some of them are super durable, but whether or not they'll fit all the gear you need is up in the air. The best backpacks are pricier, which makes sense. You tend to get what you pay for. If you're in the market for a solid backpack, Under Armour is offering an excellent discount on the Unisex Hustle 5.0 Backpack for Prime Day this year. Usually $55, you can get the pack for $41, saving you $14, and there are a ton of color options available. You should know, however, that this is a limited-time deal, and we have no idea how long it will stick around. We recommend shopping now if you're interested so you don't miss out.

 
Here's why you should consider getting the Under Armour Hustle 5.0 Backpack now
Prime Day officially starts July 16 and runs through July 17, so understandably, most people are probably waiting until the official event to do their shopping. If that's you, we get it. However, in recent years, the deals available on Prime Day haven't been much better than the early stuff floating around. Also, a variety of retailers are now involved, so it often pays to look outside of Amazon for deals. In this case, the Under Armour Hustle is available as part of a limited-time deal, and there's no countdown, so we don't know when it will end. It could be gone before you know it or even sell out.
