Montblanc reinterprets its Nicolas Rieussec Monopusher Chronograph, which was launched in 2008 and has become a true Montblanc icon. This Montblanc Star Legacy Chronograph is named after Nicolas Rieussec, who invented the first inking chronograph in 1821. The dial of the timepiece has been redesigned while keeping its distinctive look. The off-center hour circle and the chronograph’s titanium turning discs have been domed, giving them a three-dimensional effect. Reminiscent of Minerva pocket watches, the Montblanc Star Legacy Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph features a newly designed, round case of 44.8 mm, curved finishing on the sides, and horns that have steps on the sides. It is powered by the iconic Manufacture monopusher chronograph movement with automatic winding. The Caliber MB R200 is equipped with a column wheel mechanism that controls the monopusher chronograph. The timepiece is equipped with two rotating horizontally aligned discs for the monopusher chronograph’s 60-second and 30-minute counters, which turn below a blued fixed double index, as on the original 1821 device. Additionally, a second time zone is displayed via a skeletonized hand on the off-center dial.
