Introducing: The Montblanc Heritage Chronométrie Collection Twincounter Date
Montblanc, as you may know, has had a serious significant resurgence as of late in their plan and quality. They have delivered some lovely cool watches of late, including the 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter, the Villeret Tourbillon Cylindrique Geosphères Vasco da Gama, and the Heritage Chronométrie Quantième Annual Calendar. As Ben referenced yesterday, Montblanc CEO Jerome Lambert pulls a ton of his motivation from his time at Jaeger LeCoultre and A. Lange & Söhne, and that is evident in the plan of the whole Heritage Collection.
The new watch you see here is the new Heritage Chronométrie Collection Twincounter Date. Taking everything into account, it falls between the Annual Calendar and the Ultra Slim that Jack explored here . The Twincounter features a natural hardened steel case that estimates 40 mm (rather than 38 like the Ultra Slim) and is 9.85 mm in thickness, which is 4.05 mm more than the Ultra Slim. The watch includes a programmed winding caliber MB 24.23 development with a 38-hour power reserve.
The complications on this watch are the valuable date work, shown on the right-hand auxiliary dial with consistent seconds noticeable on the left-hand auxiliary dial. The blued steel bolt structure date hand is a holler to Minerva, and the mark bolt tipped chronograph switch found in its chronograph development (gained by Montblanc in 2006).
For me, this watch is incredible. The format is perfect and customary, yet the Arabic typeface utilized by Montblanc for the 12 and 6 keep things new. I likewise believe that having the date shown on an auxiliary dial rather than the standard opening showcase uplifts the class of the watch ever so marginally and makes you keep thinking about whether it is a yearly schedule. Furthermore, the cost? $2,845, which isn’t abnormal for Montblanc, however unquestionably is for a watch like this.
