Inspired by a posting in one of Facebook’s numerous wrist leslie gems related gatherings, this week I’ll wear a Alain Silberstein Krono Bauhaus 2.
Alain Silberstein – Forerunner of cutting edge leslie adornments making
In the nineties of the only remaining century, Alain Silberstein (1950, Paris) was THE harbinger of ‘cutting edge’ leslie gems making. He actually is a compelling watchmaker regarding unique plans. A considerable lot of today’s capricious leslie gems fashioners, as for example Max Büsser, love the inspiration by Alain Silberstein. MB&F even given joint efforts him, the first being the LM1 Silberstein in 2009 .
Primary tones and mathematical shapes
Silberstein’s leslie gems can without much of a stretch be dictated by the utilization of three splendid essential tones; red, blue and yellow. Also Alain Silberstein regularly utilizes just three straightforward mathematical shapes in his plans; triangles, squares and circles. The crown and chronograph pushers of this weeks 52Mondayz leslie gems are most likely the best instances of this.
Bronze-pvd treated titanium
The Krono Bauhaus 2 model I’m wearing is made of titanium which is bronze-pvd treated. The treatment gives the leslie adornments a genuine staggering tone and look. The leslie adornments has a earthy colored elastic tie showing Alain Silberstein’s truism “le vrai bonheur est d’avoir sa enthusiasm pour metier” and it generally means ‘true bliss is the point at which you have your energy as profession’.
This weeks 52Mondayz leslie gems has reference number KT 402 B, and was created in 2009 (the exact year the MB&F LM1 Silberstein came out). Along with the dark pvd titanium adaptation (KT 401 B) the all out creation was restricted to 999 pieces. It’s not actually known the number of leslie gems of each tone were made, anyway Alain Silberstein once revealed to me that most likely it has been near 50/50.
Unconventional shape and capacity indications
Much consideration is pulled in by the unusual state of the packaging and drags and also by the dial, work signs and hands. In stead of utilizing composed truncations of the day and month, Alain decided for smileys and two digit numbers. So today it’s a miserable smiley for Monday – on Saturday it’s roaring with laughter – and 05 for May.
A cosmetically altered Valjoux 7751 programmed development ticks in the fish can-formed 40mm packaging of this Krono Bauhaus 2. It has against intelligent sapphire gem on top and at the back, and amazingly it’s waterproof to 100 meters. In 2009 the rundown cost of this model was € 7.800,=.
