Two new Montblanc Star Legacy limited editions offer a bird’s eye view of the Mont Blanc Mountain.
Since its inception in 1906, Montblanc has been synonymous with luxury craftsmanship, and its latest limited edition timepieces continue this tradition in stunning fashion. Named after the iconic Mont Blanc Mountain, which represents the pinnacle of excellence, Montblanc embodies the spirit of Swiss, French, and Italian artistry.
The Montblanc Star Legacy collection draws inspiration from the brand’s emblem, a bird’s eye view of Mont Blanc with its majestic glacier valleys. This emblem, first created in 1913, has now found its way onto two remarkable timepieces, adorned with captivating blue dials that emulate the aerial view of the mountain, complete with an exquisite exploding star guilloché motif.
History of Guilloché
Dating back to the 16th century, guilloché is a refined finishing technique that reached its zenith in the 18th century, largely due to the pioneering work of Abraham-Louis Breguet (1747-1823) in watchmaking. This intricate artistry is achieved through a rose engine turning lathe, meticulously engraving precise patterns into metal. While guilloché is typically reserved for haute horlogerie timepieces, Montblanc’s Star Legacy line captures its essence with the use of a special stamp, breathing life into the mesmerizing exploding star pattern.
Montblanc Star Legacy Design Codes
The Montblanc Star Legacy Collections boast an array of design elements that pay homage to the classic Minerva pocket watches of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. With their polished, round, pebble-shaped cases, onion-shaped crowns, and the iconic Montblanc emblem adorning the crown, these timepieces exude timeless sophistication. The pointed rose gold-coated, sword-shaped hands further enhance the elegance, complemented by luminescent details.
Introducing the Key Models
This exclusive release comprises two limited-edition models: the Automatic Date and the Chronograph Day & Date. Both timepieces are meticulously crafted, limited to 800 pieces each, and housed in 43mm stainless steel cases with satin-finished and polished details. The transparent casebacks offer a captivating glimpse into the intricate mechanical movements within, inviting the wearer to marvel at the artistry.
Montblanc Star Legacy Automatic Date
The Montblanc Star Legacy Automatic Date captivates with its striking blue dial, complemented by rose gold-coated hands and numerals. Powered by the MB24.17 automatic movement, boasting a 38-hour power reserve, this timepiece elegantly displays the hours, minutes, seconds, and date. The minute track is accentuated by luminescent dots every five minutes, while orange accents grace the dial every 15 minutes, creating a visually engaging contrast.
Montblanc Star Legacy Chronograph Day & Date
Building upon the design elements of the Automatic Date, the Montblanc Star Legacy Chronograph Day & Date offers additional functionality with a chronograph, day, and date complications. This harmonious fusion of classical watchmaking and casual elegance makes it a versatile timepiece for any occasion. Equipped with the automatic movement MB 25.07, featuring a 48-hour power reserve, this chronograph is as reliable as it is stylish.
Both models boast a water resistance of up to 5 bar (approx. 50 meters) and feature Montblanc’s interchangeable strap system.
