Traditional Manual Decoration

TRADITIONAL MANUAL DECORATION

The creation of Montblanc high complications follows an artisanal approach that safeguards the traditional know-how of fine watchmaking and keeps it authentic.

Decorations with which the watchmakers enhance the appearance of each individual component of the movement are carefully crafted by hand using traditional methods - edges are chamfered, plates are ornamented with Côtes de Genève stripes and wheels are given a high polish. Great patience, concentration and passion are required for this intricate craftwork. The components themselves are designed in a way that requires them to be perfectly finished and decorated by hand – no machines would be able to achieve this level of artisanal beauty.
