MONTBLANC – “Homage to Nicolas Rieussec”

Pinterest Google+

193 years ago, French watchmaker Nicolas Rieussec designed the ink chronograph which was used to measure horses’ times during races. Montblanc pays tribute to the creative icon with a monopusher chronograph inspired by the original 1821 model. The 2014 version has the same features as its ancestor with the chronograph’s two rotating discs (60 minute counter at 9 o’ clock and 30 minute counter at 4 o’ clock) linked by a blue rhombus. The silver dial has a white ceramic display off-centre at 12 o’ clock punctuated by Arabic numerals and a black minute track with 3 leaf hands for the hours, minutes and second time zone. The date is displayed in a 3 o’ clock window whilst the day/night indicator is at 9 o’ clock. These functions are brought to life by the self-winding calibre made by Montblanc nestled in the 43mm case. Price: 31,400 CHF (rose gold – 193 pieces) – 10,500 CHF (steel – 565 pieces)
