    To celebrate their respective 15th anniversaries, MB&F and H. Moser & Cie joined hands in 2020 to create a limited edition of the now legendary Legacy Machine 101. True to H. Moser & Cie “back to basics” aesthetics, MB&F removed their logo and subdials to place the hours, minutes and power reserve hands directly on the main dial, allowing the full expression of the mesmerizing fumé dials borrowed from H. Moser & Cie. Housed in stainless steel, a material rarely used by MB&F, this incredibly attractive, hypnotizing funky blue dial takes more than 200 steps to make and is imbued with the most astonishing gradient colour effect.

    As stated in its name Max Büsser & Friends, the present LM101 boasts an in-house movement whose finish and architecture were designed by a friend, the celebrated independent watchmaker Kari Voutilainen. This anniversary edition features a double hairspring mechanism visible on the 14mm flying balance wheel which achieves great isochronism to its oscillation. The transparent case back also reveals a set of gold chatons and wheels amidst the black NAC-coated bridges with refined Côtes de Genève and chamfered edges. The present watch is extremely rare and is the 12th one produced in a run of only 15 pieces with the funky blue dials (other dial options included red, cosmic green and aqua blue, each produced in a limited edition of only 15 pieces). It is preserved in impeccable condition and accompanied by full set of accessories. This truly magnificent yet minimalistic wristwatch undoubtedly deserves to find home to a collector with an eye for timeless beauty.

    Please note that MB&F generously offers a complementary servicing of the watch to the winning bidder within a period of 6 months after the sale.
