Montblanc Bohème Collection
Montblanc Bohème Moongarden
Since the dawn of time, the moon has given rhythm and structure to people’s lives. It determined the right moment to plant and to harvest, to hunt and to fish. Long before the beginning of modern timekeeping, the course of the year was measured by the different lunar phases. Each phase had a name matching the progression of the seasons – like Seed Moon in April and Harvest Moon in October.
The Montblanc Bohème Moongarden takes these poetic names as its inspiration for a romantic representation of the moon’s phases. Translating highest watchmaking creativity into a unique and highly functional complication of feminine character, the newly developed moongarden complication is manufactured in-house in the Montblanc Manufacture. Displayed at 12 o’clock above a small, golden moon, the names are linked with the moon-phase display at 6 o’clock and the central date by hand. When the date reaches the 31st, the name of the moon-phase changes. To facilitate correct setting, the different names are engraved along the back of the watch’s case.
Expressing the codes of fine Swiss watchmaking with distinctly feminine elegance, this fine lifetime companion comes with a 36 mm case made of 18 K red gold or stainless steel featuring an alligator-skin strap.
Montblanc Bohème Day & Night
Nothing evidences the passage of time more impressively than the change of night into day. As nature’s most fundamental time indicator, the interplay of light and dark never ceases to amaze and inspires artists and craftspeople around the world again and again. Montblanc’s master watchmakers join their ranks with the Montblanc Bohème Day & Night and its romantic yet highly functional day & night complication.
A crescent-shaped opening displays the changing light over 24 hours. As the day turns into night, the light blue sky with a golden sun gives way to a warm, dark blue sky with a golden moon and stars. The day & night display is linked to the elliptically shaped date at 6 o’clock, and both can be precisely and easily set via the crown.
Befitting the distinctively romantic character of the day & night complication, the watch’s bezel is set with 72 sparkling diamonds. The sophisticated faceted guilloché dial with blued, leaf-shaped hour and minute hands and central seconds equally embraces feminine beauty and traditional fine Swiss watchmaking. Made of stainless steel, the timepiece not only introduces a new complication to the Montblanc Bohème Collection, but also a new, smaller case size with a diameter of 34 mm.
