Montblanc’s symbolic white star of quality adorns the renowned German watchmaker’s new stars of its 2012 collection.


Montblanc Grace Kelly Limited Edition Timepiece

Grace Kelly’s was a once-in-a-lifetime persona. So it’s only fitting Montblanc create a limited edition in her honour. Only eight of this model will be made, featuring 76 sparkling baguette-cut diamonds on the bezel and horns, combined with a three-dimensional drop-cut pink sapphire. The case is crafted from 18k gold, while a cascade of 177 brilliant-cut diamonds flows along the flange and shimmering Mother of Pearl dial.


Montblanc Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph Open Hometime watch

The Hometime follows up last year’s homage to Rieussec, an iconic, French, 19th century watchmaker who invented the chronograph. Deviating from the standard design, the Hometime features a single push-piece at ‘8 o’clock’ – a location for both convenience and protection against inadvertent triggering – that sequentially cycles the start, stop, and zero-return functions. Rotating counter discs honour Rieussec’s original design, while 18k red-gold enhancements are stunning yet subtle.


Montblanc TwinFly GreyTech Chronograph

For a more modern design, Montblanc’s TimeWalker collection is the company’s self-described ‘DNA’. Sleek and distinctive, the GreyTech model is inspired by modern, open, glass-and-steel architecture. Ample dials sit beneath sapphire crystals that are anti-reflective on both their surfaces, while narrow bezels and filigreed, skeletonised horns render nothing superfluous but everything magnificent. The grey here, not just in the titanium case but throughout, is elegant, and seven time indicators are alluring to even the most critical connoisseur.
Limited to 888 editions. US$14,530


Montblanc Collection Villeret 1858 Vintage Tachydate

Seamlessly blending the style of a bygone era with modern technological brilliance, Montblanc’s Vintage TachyDate joins the Villeret 1858 as the first chronograph in the line. An intriguing technical impression is made with a designated hand for the date, rather than a window, while a running seconds display and a double tachymeter scale adorn a three-dimensional display that embodies class. A limited edition of 58 watches each of red/gold and white/gold stocks were made, and they won’t be available for long.
US$54,365 (red/gold) / US$56,895 (white/gold)
