  • Catalogue Essay

    Back in 2020, when both MB&F and H. Moser & Cie celebrated their 15th anniversaries, they joined hands to create the Legacy Machine 101. In respect to the H. Moser & Cie aesthetics of “back to basics”, MB&F has removed their logo and subdials from the LM101 and adopted stainless steel 316, which is rarely used by MB&F, to embrace the legendary H. Moser & Cie sunburst fumé dial, which takes more than 200 steps to make and is imbued with the most astonishing gradient colour effect. The dial is further enhanced by the clever and simple display of the hours, minutes display and power reserve.

    The LM101 also boasts an in-house movement that was designed with movement aesthetics and finishing specifications by the renowned Finnish independent watchmaker Kari Voutilainen. The Moser 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 5th one produced in a run of only 15 pieces with the red fumé dials (other dial options include funky blue, 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.
