New MB&F LM101 Palladium
The mighty MB&F has just released a new product in their Legacy Machine 101 series - the MB&F LM101 Palladium. The 18-piece limited series will feature a palladium case and feature a “vert d’eau” dial (mot-à-mot translates to “water green” – aquamarine or aquamarine). I visited the MB&F MAD gallery and saw MB&F LM101 palladium in metal and these are my impressions. See the end of the article for the official press release and images.MB&F Legacy Machine Sequential Evo
MB&F LM101 Palladium The new Legacy Machine 101 is a continuation of the precious metal selection. The LM101 was previously available in red and white gold, the "Frost" red and gold limited edition, and a spectacular platinum version.
The first thing that strikes me is the attractive luster of the palladium case. The specific silvery white appearance of the platinum group metals (palladium, platinum, rhodium, ruthenium, iridium and osmium) imparts a good appearance. These metals are rare and play a vital role in our daily lives. Think of the catalytic converters in the cars around us (Wikipedia is a good source of information on the subject).
The palladium case looks great. The watch is 40mm in diameter and 16mm in height, with well-balanced dimensions and no gender divide (a frivolous topic that no real collector, lady or gentleman would care about). The brushed case sides contrast with the polished bezel and lugs. In addition, the brushed surface provides a nice introduction to the sunray dial.
Swiss Lake or Polynesian Sea? For those who are used to previous versions of the MB&F LM101, the new dial will look familiar. Again, the center of the dial is dominated by the "flying" balance wheel. This time, striking mechanical details float on calm waters. The "vert d'eau" dial has undefined shades of green, grey, blue. The colors simply immerse you in a state of calm, emphasizing the balance wheel and raised sub-dial.wholesale replica watches
The layout is "relatively" simple. A clean design gives the impression of simplicity, and we all know that's not the case. The central balance wheel catches the viewer's eye. A small raised dial at 6 o'clock indicates the power reserve. The time, hours and minutes are displayed on another small raised dial between 1 and 2 o'clock in the traditional position.
The view offers great legibility thanks to the high contrast of the blue-gold hands on the white enamel. The base dial is engraved with "Legacy Machine" hand-engraved in calligraphy.
Sign Kari Voutilainen The MB&F LM101 Palladium is powered by an in-house developed three-dimensional watch machine. The original structure breaks down traditional barriers.
Movement is the superlative finish (the official word used to describe movement finish) that is gorgeous respecting the 19th century style. The idea is that the movement bears the "signature" of Kari Voutilainen. Once - engraved on one of the bridges (visible through the back of the showcase), and second - about the quality of the decor and the splendid decoration. Grab a big magnifying glass (I mean Project LpX) and go to the MB&F MAD Gallery and see if you can argue with me.HYT H1 ALU BLUE
When Tradition Only Stops at Completion The new MB&F LM101 Palladium is a gorgeous machine. Regardless, the brand is a big consumer of beauty monikers, and the latest addition is no exception.
I find a palladium case an excellent choice for a "vert d'eau" dial. The exotic case luster complements the exotic dial color. The entire watch is an ultra-modern eye-catching concept that retains the idea of classicism through traditional decoration.
Original Press Release MB&F LM101 Palladium Launched in 2014, the Legacy Machine 101 (LM101) was equipped with the first movement developed entirely in-house by MB&F – which gave rise to a series of in-house developed movements. The latest addition to the collection – the LM101 Palladium Edition – is also the first MB&F piece to be made from the rare silver-white metal palladium. The natural white color of the palladium contrasts with the new sunray dial, which changes between grey and pale blue and green depending on the light.
For a classic-sized 40mm watch, the Legacy Machine 101 covers a lot of ground. Or to be more precise, the LM101 covers a lot of time: more than 100 years from inspiration to real
