LM101 'Frost' limited editions by @MBandF


When we presented Legacy Machine 101 (LM101) a year ago, we told you it was the purest, most essential expression of mechanical watchmaking we could conceive. Focusing on just three essential elements – the balance wheel, a power reserve indicator, and the time – LM101 captured the essence in a classic 40mm case.

Today we go a step further on our classic watchmaking journey… with the LM101 ‘Frost’ limited editions. ‘Frost’ because their dial has been frosted – a traditional finishing technique which goes back to the late 18th century. At the time, pocket watches were absolutely not water-resistant… To protect against oxidation, movement plates and bridges were frosted by treating their surfaces with acid and fire, making them more resistant – and giving them a silvery, frosted look.

Nowadays frosting is the craft of a very small number of artisans, who have traded acid and fire for safer – but much more difficult to master – metallic brush processes. Rather than brushing, which would remove material, the technique is to actually compress the metal; this is the secret to making the surface harder… and obtaining the beautiful, visually unmistakable frosted effect.

Thanks to our Friend Kari Voutilainen, who has defined and supervised the aesthetics and finishing of our Legacy Machines from Day One, we were fortunate to gain access to one of those very few artisans. Jose Labarga applies frosting to what you might call the dial – but which is in fact the mainplate of the LM101 movement inside: a calibre which was entirely conceived in-house by our own engineers.

LM101 ‘Frost’ is a limited edition of 33 pieces in red gold and – for the first time at MB&F – 18 pieces in yellow gold.
