If you’re following me on Instagram, you’ll know I’m at present in Hong Kong for Watches & Wonders, an annual exhibition into its second 12 months, made up of 13 horological homes exhibiting their finest and the brightest. And whereas I haven’t precisely checked out all 13 pavilions but, the timepieces I’ve seen so removed from the likes of Cartier, IWC and Van Cleef & Arpels are literally actually fantastic.
And then there’s the star timepiece from Montblanc, the Metamorphosis II that’s all types of fantastic. Crafted solely by hand and made up of over 746 mechanical motion parts (simply look under for a condensed cross part), the simplest method to describe this magnificence is that this. It’s a watch with two faces. It is first a classical timepiece, with the face exhibiting hours, minutes and dates. ‘Open’ it and it reveals a chronograph face with all new features, with the kicker being the way it ‘transforms’ from one face to a different with simply assistance from a slide on the left facet of the face.
It can also be the type of watch I personally adore, provided that it ticks all my containers as far a timepiece is anxious. Copious quantities of gold? Check. A large sufficient face that measures 52 mm as a result of I’m not massive on tiny watches? Check. Also, it’s thick, chunky and completed off with an expensive leather-based strap? Check, test, test. But probably the most interesting function in addition to its apparent beauty and the way in which it features has obtained to be the truth that there are solely 18 made, a real restricted version that’s additionally a tribute to Montblanc’s watchmaking heritage that spans 150 years.
