And here we present to you a sneak peek of the new Montblanc watch to watch out for! This one is due to be released in Geneva in a few weeks time. Yes, very soon we all will get officially introduced to the Montblanc Villeret Vintage 1858 Chronographe Watch. This one stands a class apart because of its distinct homage to retro chronograph watches with the typical spiral aka snail shell tachymetre scale. We are told that this was a common practice to let a telemeter scale be placed on the periphery of the ring.
Dials will hold your breath with their high-quality enamel which move with elegance along the crisp numerals on the face of the watch. Of course, the characteristic Arabic hour markers are pretty much there like the rest of the Montblanc watches.
The watch hands are in blued steel. The inside supportsĀ retro Minerva caliber 16-29 manually wound column wheel chronograph movement. The 20 minute chornograph works as a monopusher that is operated through a pusher in the crown. The limited edition features two models with only 116 units intotal. Half of the 43.5 mm wide watches are in 18 carat red gold with brown alligator straps while the other half in 18 carat in white gold with black alligator straps.
