Hands-On: The Montblanc Bohème Moongarden
The same standards are additionally applied to Montblanc’s women’s watches. All are well delivered with fascinating capacities whether it be a basic date-just treated steel watch for $3,000 or a women ceaseless schedule watch (around $19,900). The Bohème Collection is devoted to female authorities and obliges their advantage in complications while keeping the plan flirtatious.
Part of the current year’s expansion to the Bohème Collection is the Moongarden, envisioned here. The exemplary round tempered steel case is 36 mm in width and 10.74 mm thick. The carries are straight and calculated, and the exceptionally little onion crown is a fascinating choice as you don’t see it frequently on a woman’s watch. I love that there is a sapphire gem case back uncovering the automatic type MB 29.17 and blade sharp rotor.
The silvered dial shows the time with Arabic numerals (with a trace of Breguet) at the quarter hours. For the rest of the records, little precious stones are utilized, which are suggestive of a reconsideration (when it comes to jewels, I always say pull out all the stops or return home). The middle round of the dial is a sunburst guilloché with two separate openings – one for the moon-stages, and a second a bow structure gap uncovering the months. However, this is where it gets intriguing – the months are not the ordinary schedule months. No, no. These months are representative articulations – “Rose Moon,” “Tracker Moon,” “Gather Moon,” and so forth – established in antiquated culture.
In case you were new to the names of the antiquated lunar months (as I was), they are as follows: Ice moon (January), Snow Moon (February), Chaste Moon (March), Seed Moon (April), Bright Moon (May), Dyan Moon (June), Rose Moon (July), Red Moon (August), Fruit Moon (September), Harvest Moon (October), Hunter Moon (November), and Oak Moon (December). These (less the word “moon”) are engraved on the pivoting disk.
Overall, this is an extremely fascinating watch with regards to the feeling that it’s anything but a complication you frequently (or ever) see. I can’t say that I would actually utilize this complication, as I feel that the most down to earth complications are day, date, and month show. However, I commend Montblanc for proceeding to plan and fabricate stylishly satisfying and strange women’s watches and anticipate what they come up with next.
The plain tempered steel variant retails for $4,200. For more information, visit Montblanc.com .
