The MB&F LM1 Alain Silberstein was introduced in 2016 in a limited edition of 12 pieces each in red gold, titanium, or PVD-coated titanium. Based on the 2014 LM1, it features a dial with a distinct Alain Silberstein touch, including his signature use of geometrical shapes and primary colors. For this version, the balance bridge is done in sapphire - a feat said to have costed two years of research and development.
The movement, visible trough the sapphire crystal caseback, features a frosted finish replacing the Geneva waves found on earlier models.
