Montblanc Heritage Spirit Collection
Montblanc Heritage Spirit Orbis Terrarum
Inspired by the spirit of Montblanc’s iconic Meisterstück fountain pen, the Montblanc Heritage Spirit Collection embodies traditional craftsmanship, timeless design and outstanding functionality. With its new interpretation of the worldtime, one of the most useful complications in fine watchmaking, the Montblanc Heritage Spirit Orbis Terrarum literally adds a global perspective to the collection. The world itself, in Latin “orbis terrarum”, is at the core of the manufacture complication and at the center of the dial.
The multilayer dial made of sapphire crystal shows the continents as viewed from the North Pole which are encircled by the name of the 24 cities representing the different time zones. Under the continent cutouts, a disc showing day/night as well as the 24 hour time zones rotates with the movement mechanism, causing the continents to change color as day evolves into night. Thanks to this innovative and intuitive concept, it is possible to see what time of day or night it is in 24 time zones around the world – at a single glance.
With the beautifully decorated planisphere in the center of the manufacture complication, every detail of this cosmopolitan timepiece reflects the finest Swiss watchmaking craft. The sapphire crystal dial, the elegant dauphine hands, the 41 mm case in 18 K red gold or stainless steel with its polished and satinated decorations are a testimony to the passion and dedication of Montblanc’s master watchmakers.
Montblanc Heritage Spirit Date Automatic
With the classic and distinctive elegance of the Montblanc Heritage Spirit Collection, the Montblanc Heritage Spirit Date Automatic adds a new color to Montblanc’s palette of refined wristwatches. Among the new collection’s timepieces with satinated and polished cases made out of 18 K red gold and decorated with silvery white dials, one model stands out with a dial in warm chocolate brown.
Elegantly tone-in-tone with a brown wristband, crafted of alligator skin with large scales, the watch’s chocolate brown, slightly cambered dial with sunburst finish lends the slim 18 K red gold case intense depth. The codes of fine Swiss watchmaking are embodied by the red gold-plated appliqué indexes and the red gold-plated facetted hands in classic dauphine shape. The watch’s automatic Calibre MB 24.09 displays hours, minutes and central seconds as well as the date at 3 o’clock.
A second addition to the Montblanc Heritage Spirit Collection lets the heritage of Montblanc shine in all its brightness: the model’s 18 K red gold case comes with a bezel set with 88 diamonds. As a subtle finishing touch, the red gold indexes at 2, 4, 8 and 10 o’clock on the silvery white dial are likewise accentuated with three diamonds.
