The first mechanical movement made by Montblanc in the company's own manufacture in Le Locle is inspired by the invention of Nicolas Rieussec from 1821, the first chronograph of our time. Montblanc’s Nicolas Rieussec Monopusher Chronograph with the force of a hand-wound Montblanc calibre MB R100 and a classic column-wheel mechanism, this timepiece pays tribute to the watchmaker who truly wrote history.
Driving force of Montblanc Nicolas RIEUSSEC chronograph Monopusher is the Montblanc calibre MB R100 with manual winding. It has a classic column wheel mechanism and a vertical clutch that ensures a virtually smooth power transmission to the wheels of the chronograph.
