Who says watches only tell the time? A watch, when designed by a master, can be a piece of art in itself. This is amply proven by the LM1 Silberstein. French watch designer Alain Silberstein in collaboration with the genius himself, Max Busser delivers an exceptional watch, both in terms of its design and its functionality. Alain has taken the quintessential MB&F’s classic Legacy Machine No.1 and tweaked it with his unique and quite unconventional touch.
LM1 Silberstein – Beauty, functionality and style
What immediately catches the eye about this novelty is the clever use of colour. He uses his signature colours – red, blue and yellow and shapes – triangle, rectangle and circle for the hands and dial markers. While looking at the watch, the hour is the most important bit of information we use. Hence, the hour hand features the most vibrant colour (red) against the backdrop of a larger surface area (triangle) with thin minute hands in blue. An attention-grabbing feature of the watch is the concave curve of the subdials. While the shapes and colours of the crown resonate Silberstein’s style, the battle-axe logo represents MB&F.
Another quality of this unique timepiece is that sets it apart is that it allows the user to set two time zones completely independently, unlike other machines that only allow the hour hand to be adjusted. Legacy Machine N°1 allows both the hours and minutes of each dial to be set to the time as desired by the user.
Beauty, functionality and style are the highlights of this piece de resistance by MB&F.
