MONT BLANC Introduces New Watches At Watches & Wonders 2015 Hong Kong


MONT BLANC Introduces New Watches At Watches & Wonders 2015 Hong Kong. Bohème Collection: Moongarden and Day & Night Timepieces with sophisticated and refined design, two new Montblanc timepieces enhance the Bohème Collection. Launched in 2014, the collection, with the Bohème Perpetual Calendar as its centrepiece, enriches the codes of fine watchmaking with elegance and femininity.


The latest additions are two new complications: one that displays the name of each month’s full moon name and a unique day & night complication. Both echo the distinctive design codes of  Bohème:  simple lines, an effortlessly elegant case with its refined personality and the slightly curved faceted horns, a dial of the greatest purity, and floral Arabic numerals with their sensuous curves. Mirroring the radiance, self-confidence and independence of the contemporary Bohème lady, the design’s aesthetic elegance is matched by the highly functional attributes of the watch’s complication.


Montblanc Heritage Chronométrie Dual Time Vasco da Gama Limited Edition 238. This timepiece houses a highly functional complication developed in-house by Montblanc which enables it to simultaneously display a second time zone (Local time) alongside the time in the wearer's home time zone. For this limited edition, the home time counter at 12 o’clock is decorated at its center with a representation of the night-sky in the southern hemisphere. As a matching counterpart to this night-sky that guided Vasco da Gama during his voyage, we find the second counter at 6 o'clock which  features a miniature map of the world with a three-dimensional effect, that invites the beholder to travel.


Montblanc Heritage Chronométrie ExoTourbillon Minute Chronograph Vasco da Gama Diamonds Limited Edition 25 combines two of the most important chronometric complication: a chronograph to measure the duration of brief intervals and a patented tourbillon construction for absolute precision. For this limited edition, the Montblanc ExoTourbillon Minute Chronograph Vasco da Gama Diamonds has been the focus of particularly elaborate decorative work. Its 44 mm-diameter white gold case, polished and satin-finished to emphasise the elegance of the entire timepiece, is fitted with a bezel adorned with 76 diamonds.


Montblanc Heritage Chronométrie Quantième Annuel Vasco da Gama Diamonds Limited Edition 90. The lengths of the months of the year, as established by the Gregorian calendar in 1582, are subject to a cyclical variation that requires the wearer to set the date and day in accordance with the number of days in each month. The perfecting by watchmakers of an Annual Calendar complication (Quantième Annuel in French) means that watch owners now only need to give a thought to their date settings once a year, carrying out a simple manual operation on the morning of 1st  March. During the rest of the year, and for as long as the watch is wound and working, this sophisticated mechanism will automatically ensure the required settings of all calendar displays (day, date, month and moon phase).


Montblanc Heritage Spirit Perpetual Calendar Sapphire in homage to the spirit of the legendary Montblanc Meisterstück Fountain Pen launched in 1924, Montblanc introduces the Montblanc Heritage Spirit Perpetual Calendar Sapphire in an innovative version. Embodying all the codes of fine watchmaking down to the last and smallest detail, it bears the signature of traditional craftsmanship, timeless design and flawless functionality. Presented at the Watches & Wonders event, this remarkable timepiece made of 18K red gold  now showcases the mechanical splendor of its perpetual calendar grand complication movement through a transparent dial of smoky sapphire crystal that combines traditional aesthetics and technical prowess.


Meisterstück Heritage Spirit Date Automatic. At this year’s Watches & Wonders trade fair in Hong Kong, a watch of sober elegance in 18-karat red gold will be added to the Heritage Spirit collection, that was launched in 2014 in homage to the spirit of the legendary Meisterstück fountain pen of 1924. With a diameter of 39 millimetres for a depth of just 9 millimetres, and Haute Horlogerie quality pervading every detail, this watch bears the signature of traditional craftsmanship, allying timeless design with perfect functionality. Its refinement is seen in soft lines that will appeal to watch enthusiasts, for whom the classic elegant and timeless design will always look in line with the times.


Montblanc Villeret Collection – Tourbillon Cylindrique  NightSky Geosphères. At the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie 2015 (SIHH) in Geneva, Montblanc presented its Tourbillon Cylindrique Geosphères Vasco da Gama in a warm red gold case with a striking bright dial. The limited collection comprises of just 18 pieces, was a strongly requested piece. Innovation, precision and determination – the same values that guided Vasco da Gama on his historic expedition, drove the pioneering spirit of Montblanc.


 To honour the explorer’s legacy, the Montblanc master watchmakers created a second timepiece that pays hommage to his exploratory spirit, setting off  hither on the unknown ocean route to India with the stars in the nightsky as their only guide.


At Watches & Wonders in Hong Kong, the Montblanc Villeret Tourbillon Cylindrique NightSky Geosphères, which unites a cylindrical tourbillon and a uniquely functional worldtime indication, is now making its first-ever appearance in 18K white gold in a limited edition of 18 pieces telling the story of Vasco da Gama’s navigation through the Nightskies of the hemispheres in a precise yet spectacular way.
