I do not particularly have a collecting style when it comes to watches. I enjoy buying from most brands, mainstream or indies. When I first started collecting, there were only two brands I had in mind: Rolex and Patek Phillipe. Looking at my collection now, I don’t even know what I was thinking back then. I guess I just gravitate to whatever I think would look good on my wrist.
MB&F Legacy Machine Perpetual 鈦金屬／錶徑44mm／三維立體機芯／萬年曆功能
The one watch in the collection that I would never part with would have to be the MB&F LM Perpetual in titanium. I still remember vividly the first time the brand really got my attention was when I saw a review of the LM Perpetual on Hodinkee many years ago. I was completely blown away just by looking at the photo of the watch. It was unlike anything I had seen before at the time and I knew right away I had to have one.
這款MB&F的LM Perpetual鈦金屬腕錶應該是我絕對不會捨棄的一支收藏。還記得多年前我在Hodinkee看到LM Perpetual的報導，那是這個品牌頭一次引起我的注意。光是看到手錶的照片，我就完全被震撼了。它和當時看過的任何錶款都不一樣，我馬上就知道必須擁有這個酷玩意兒。
Of course, I had only started collecting at the time, still trying to justify the thousands of dollars I had spent on this hobby. The LM Perpetual was something I could not afford then but I was fortunate enough later in the year to acquire a preowned LM 101 at a very reasonable price. That was the beginning of my love for MB&F. A few years later in 2019, I felt I was ready to take the next step. I reached out to my AD to secure me a piece of the LM Perpetual to be delivered in 2020, the year I turned 50. A milestone piece that I had worked really hard for and would most likely go to one of my kids someday.
當時我才剛剛開始收藏手錶，對於是否應該在這項嗜好上投資幾萬美金這件事還需要說服自己。當時的我還負擔不起LM Perpetual，幸虧在那年的年底用非常漂亮的二手價買到了LM 101。我就是從那時候開始愛上MB&F。一直到了2019，我覺得應該準備好可以跨出下一步了。因此我聯繫了熟識的錶店訂了一只LM萬年曆，我們談好在2020年，也就是我50歲那年交錶。這款錶作為紀念我努力工作的里程碑，而且日後也會成為我傳承給下一代的腕錶。
