Montblanc Heritage Chronométrie Chronograph Quantième Annuel

After the success of the Heritage Chronométrie collection at the last SIHH Montblanc adds two new models. One is this annual calendar based on one of the first Minerva chronographs from the 1920s. The official name of the watch is the Montblanc Heritage Chronométrie Chronograph Quantième Annuel.

For the laymen among you: the renowned Minerva manufacture in Villeret has been in Montblanc hands for many years. It is the first time in this line that Montblanc combines an annual calendar with a chronograph. Of course that is all fine and dandy (and complicated), but it doesn’t improve the readability for the user. Montblanc has solved this problem by giving the chronograph functions blue hands and the hours, minutes and calendar rose gold hands. For this calendar the date only needs to be adjusted once a year. Price: € 18,900.
