Montblanc Laboratory Test 500


Once the countless parts have been skilfully put together, the mark of distinction for a newly created Montblanc timepiece is passing the rigorous testing procedure of the Montblanc Laboratory Test 500 – which tests for utmost precision and absolute perfection.

The timepieces undergo a variety of controls and checks over a period of 500 hours: daily wear and tear, water resistance, numerous settings and re-settings, different climatic conditions, as well as a check of all their specific functions. It is a demanding and tough procedure that guarantees the functionality of even the most technically complex features.

The watch is only released for delivery once the quality assurance team at Montblanc's location in Le Locle is convinced that a watch upholds Montblanc’s strict quality standards. Each watch that passes the Montblanc Laboratory Test 500 is issued with an individual test certificate – labelling it worthy of Montblanc’s strict and high-quality standards.
