MB&F-Legacy Machine 101, new version in 2021
replica MB&F watches launched Legacy Machine 101 (aka LM101) in 2014 and announced its intention to focus on the basic elements of mechanical watches, as the name chosen for this model implies ("101" usually refers to basic principles and concepts) Expected in specific areas).
With a diameter of only 40 mm, the LM101 is one of MB&F's most compact watches. Its movement is also the first movement conceived entirely by the brand's in-house engineering team.
In 2021, MB&F launched three new Legacy Machine 101 versions: a red gold model with a dark blue dial, a platinum model with a purple dial, and for the first time a stainless steel case with a light blue dial. Compared with the previous version, these new 101 versions introduce some subtle aesthetic changes: the bezel is thinner, leaving more space for the dial, the Legacy Machine engraving is eliminated, and the enamel subdial (indicating the 2 o'clock position) The hours and minutes, as well as the power reserve at 6 o'clock) are slightly larger, and the flying balance wheel is equipped with a double hairspring provided by H. Moser & Cie., as seen on MB&F × H. Moser LM101.replica watches Review
The 14 mm balance wheel is protected by a high domed crystal sapphire with anti-reflective coating on both sides, suspended on two arches milled from solid metal blocks, and carefully polished to achieve a mirror-like appearance.
The LM101 movement features Côtes de Genève, hand-polished bevels, gold diamonds and countersunk blue screws, and is decorated with a contrasting dark "NAC" finish. This hand-wound movement vibrates 18,000 times per hour and can run autonomously for 45 hours.
MB&F-Legacy Machine 101 Frost
MB&F’s Legacy Machine 101 debuted in 2014. It interprets the essence of a mechanical watch: balance wheel or adjustment mechanism, indication of remaining power, and of course there is still time.
In the new Legacy Machine 101 Frost limited edition, these basic elements are more prominent in the context of the new frosted gold dial (actually not the dial, because it is the top plate of the movement).
Released to commemorate the 10th anniversary of MB&F, this new replica watches Price will be available in two limited editions: 18 gold models and 33 red gold models. The use of gold is MB&F's initiative and a further tribute to traditional watchmaking craftsmanship.
The "frosted" finish (or "finition grenée" in French) was introduced by Abraham-Louis Breguet in the late 18th and early 19th centuries to protect the dial and movement from oxidation-more common at the time because Watches and clocks are not waterproof-decorate at the same time.
Initially, frosting was obtained by treating the components with a special acid mixture and then heating them on an open flame, which was very dangerous. These operations are replaced by a safer method, which involves carefully scrubbing the surface with a wire brush. It is not an easy task, because it is difficult to get a unified result. In fact, too much pressure or too long brushing time will quickly destroy the required matte surface and uneven polishing.
Few artisans today create true frosted finishes: most surfaces that look frosted are actually sandblasted, which does not have exactly the same visual impact.replica Zenith Chronomaster Watches
To enhance contrast, Frost's suspension balance wheel is rhodium-plated, making it truly stand out.
Two white lacquered subdials hover above the top plate of the fine-brushed movement: contrasting blue gold hands show the hours and minutes in the upper right corner, while the 45-hour power reserve indicator is displayed below. The exquisite gold periphery surrounds each dial, enhancing the overall elegance.
The high arched sapphire crystal of LM101 Frost echoes the perfectly polished double arched lines of the suspension balance wheel.
The crystal glass on the back of the display is slightly arched to reduce the thickness of the case strap. From a visual point of view, the overall height of the watch reveals a carefully hand-made movement that slowly beats at a frequency of 18,000 times per hour or 2.5 Hz.
Although the award-winning independent watchmaker Kari Voutilainen is responsible for the fine processing of the movement and its faithfulness to the history of the watch, its architecture and structure were developed in-house by MB&F.
Like LM101, the classic case of'Frost' is 40 mm wide x 16 mm high. The highly polished bezel and lugs make the matte surface of the frosted dial stand out.Richard Mille RM 011 Le Mans Classic
