The Montblanc Sport Collection (with diving function) was created to meet the needs of non-professional divers and demanding sportsmen. It is designed for water resistance to 200 m and equipped with special diving features. These models are very robust, and the various protection systems guarantee maximum protection and peace of mind.

Bezel:The bezel of the case is unidirectional (it can only be turned counter-clockwise), equipped with a ratchet mechanism, and provides the information required by divers: a luminous triangle, 15-minute indexes and a mark for each 5-minute interval. In order to calculate the remaining diving time, align the triangle with the minute hand (A) before starting your dive. The bezel will show the number of minutes which have elapsed.

Push-buttons: The push-buttons may be operated during diving.

Dial/Hands: The high-contrast design of the dial and the hands guarantees good visibility in any situation. The indexes and the hands are luminous in order to ensure visibility at night and when diving.
