MontBlanc Heritage Spirit watches are manufactured in the Swiss region of Villeret and Le Locle, surrounded by the beautiful Swiss mountains, steeped in 19th Century history. The workshops at MontBlanc where timepieces from the popular Heritage Spirit collection are committed to create beautifully engineered instruments, whilst preserving traditional watchmaking craftsmanship.
MontBlanc Heritage Spirit watches underscore the brands values of precision, perfection and durability. Each design is specifically created for a slightly different taste or requirement, allowing any wristwatch lover with an admiration for pure Swiss precision, to be able to find a watch perfectly matched to their desires. Each MontBlanc Heritage Spirit watch is crafted by hand in-house at Villeret. The designers at MontBlanc must demonstrate an intuitive understanding of each individual component and how these must come together at the end to create a synergistic, rhythmic engine that works flawlessly, regardless of any challenge or situation ahead. MontBlanc watches are crafted from high-end durable materials for longevity – a quality which transforms each timepiece into a family heirloom with its very own story to tell with each wrist it serves.
MontBlanc Heritage Spirit watches have been integrated with some of the company’s finest in movements in the world of haute horlogerie. Designed to promise unbeatable precision, their automatic movements have been adjusted by hand if any slight imperfections are detected during manufacture. The MontBlanc Heritage Spirit Date Watch for example, is fitted with the Calibre MB 24.17 which oscillates at a high frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, providing a 38 hour power reserve. The timepiece is steeped in elegant accents including a beautifully polished 18ct rose gold bezel spanning a 39mm diameter, and elegant rose gold hand applied indexes. A discreet date window is provided at the third hour, and the MontBlanc Heritage Spirit watch is fitted on a classic yet comfortable black alligator strap.
The MontBlanc Heritage Spirit Moonphase Watch adds a touch more functionality. Still in-keeping with the simple, purist design of the Heritage Spirit collection, the dial is fitted with the same elegant rose gold hour indexes and central hands which have been carefully hand applied to create depth and texture to the dial. MontBlanc have a tendency to mark their sweeping second hands with a blue steeled finish. The characteristic adds a vibrant injection of colour to the watch, whilst also complimenting a myriad of different lustrous metal finishes – all of which catch the light under the sun to create something truly spectacular. A moonphase featured at the 6 o’clock location is beautifully embellished with a deep blue hue and golden moon stamped onto a star studded night sky. The date is also set inside this feature and takes the form of a counter around the outside of the moonphase design. As with all MontBlanc watches, a sapphire crystal glass canopies over the silver bombe dials of the MontBlanc Spirit Heritage collection. The finish provides the wearer with a clear insight into their watch, without any undesirable glare affecting the beauty of each intricately applied appliqué.
