Montblanc Star Legacy Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph Only Watch ’21 Unique Piece
- Call to order (855) 221-8663
This year marks the 9th edition of the renowned Only Watch charity auction as well as the 200th anniversary of the inking chronograph created by Nicolas Rieussec. To celebrate both important milestones, Montblanc has decided to pay tribute to both events with the creation of the Montblanc Star Legacy Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph Only Watch ’21 Unique Piece, which will be auctioned together with a wooden replica of the historical inking chronograph from 1821, and one of the most immersive high watchmaking experiences, all in support of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy research. This unique piece comes in a 43 mm 18K yellow gold case that is shaped like a pebble, offering comfort and elegance on the wrist. For Montblanc, the details make all the difference, with sapphire crystal on the front that has been treated with an anti-reflective coating on both sides to allow the wearer to admire the dial. Paying tribute to the charity auction, the caseback features a special engraving that reads "Only Watch Unique Piece". Furthermore, the movement’s oscillating weight has been crafted out of 18K yellow gold and decorated with a guilloché grain d’orge pattern. It also includes a cartridge where a further engraving can be added: either "Only Watch 2021" or the name of the future owner, making this unique piece fit for a true collector. For each Only Watch auction, a color theme is chosen, which for this 9th edition will be orange. Following this fun theme, Montblanc has added subtle orange touches to the dial’s railway track, the skeletonized second time zone hand, the chronograph’s double index, and the date number six, as a nod to the day of the auction.
