Where do I even start to wax lyrical in regards to the TimeWriter II Chronographe Bi-Frequence 1.000, which was unveiled in Singapore final week at Montblanc’s Beauty Of A Second occasion in Mandarin Gallery.
The expertise behind this chronograph timepiece is spectacular, contemplating the way it measures elapsed intervals to the closest 1,000th of a second, but has a steadiness which oscillates at a tempo of solely 50 hertz. The development? Well, the primary attention-grabbing factor about this chronograph is the shortage of buttons. It is an genuine monopusher, and its solitary button is positioned above 12, halfway between its horns.
Subtle and suitably attractive (as was Hollywood actor Dylan McDermott who was flown in specifically for Montblanc’s occasion), I received’t even start to enter the workings of the chronograph. Suffice it to say that Montblanc’s grasp craftsmen have it lined.
Aesthetics is probably one of many least vital elements when confronted with such a horological masterpiece, however it’s definitely a vital one in my ebook. Housing the difficult motion is a 47 mm huge 18 carat white gold case, with Montblanc’s signature star crafted in mother-of-pearl on the elegant crown.
The icing on this well timed cake? Well, solely 36 items of this timepiece marvel can be found worldwide, which signifies that it’s as restricted because it will get. Considering that it is available in at a princely sum, it’s definitely meant to be a uncommon, and terribly particular, breed. Watch the accompanying video and also you’ll know what I imply.
