MontBlanc Heritage Chronomoetrie watches merge the line between a special occasion dress watch and a daily companion. The designs take inspiration from MontBlanc’s Minerva roots and their rich heritage in beautiful Swiss timekeeping. The collection spans from designs with very simple, timeless dials, to timepieces that offer some very useful functional features.
When it comes to MontBlanc Heritage Chronometrie watches, less is definitely more. The watches make comfortable office companions and due to their unimposing depth, will sit beautifully underneath the shirt sleeve of a work’s suit. One particularly eye-catching quality of a MontBlanc Heritage Chronometrie watch, is the carefully hand applied indexes, which create a wonderful dimension to the dial, adding depth where depth is least expected. Of course the central hands have also been arranged with the same unwavering precision. Some are finished in a steel effect, others a delicate rose gold coating to keep in line with those designs with 18ct red gold bezels and matching bi-colour bracelets. Nevertheless, the hands have been beautifully carved into a needle-fine point at the tip – a blue steeled central second hand adds colour to many of the dials within this family of MontBlanc watches.
Although the watches from the prestigious MontBlanc Heritage Chronometrie collection are not impulse buys, they are certainly timepieces with a quality that can be proudly handed down from one generation to another – heirlooms with a story to tell – perfectly refined timekeepers that contain the rich history of Montblanc’s world-leading technical innovations. The MontBlanc Heritage Chronométrie Quantième Complet Watch for example, features a 40mm silver dial with a beautiful moonphase function at 6 o’clock. This instrument is perfect for those gentlemen who enjoy the appeal of a watch with many complications to its construction. A day date presented in two separate windows is presented underneath the 12 o’clock location, surrounded by a sophisticated minute track around the periphery of the dial.
The MontBlanc Heritage Chronométrie Dual Time Watch is another innovation from these world-famous Swiss watchmakers. The 41mm dial is confident and daring – perfect for a masculine wrist, whilst a smooth, silver dials retains simplicity despite some additional features occupying the display. The watch boasts a legible 24-hour sub-dial at 12 o’clock, together with a date aperture synced with local time at 3 o’clock and a 60 second sub-dial at 6. This MontBlanc watch is powered via the ultra-reliable MB 29.19 Calibre which provides a useful 42 hour power reserve. Rhodium plated central hands provide the perfect finishing touches to this sophisticated design, teaming beautifully with a traditional black leather strap.
For those on the hunt for a high-end Swiss-made watch, the MontBlanc Heritage Chronometrie watch brings together the skill and the passion in beautifully engineered mechanical timekeeping. These watches underscore the brand’s three core values – the preservation of; precision, perfection and durability. Each timepiece is symbolic of MontBlanc’s success so far and their dedication to producing each component by hand in Villeret.
