The History

Montblanc is a byword for the finest “writing instruments” in the world. But since the late 1990s, it has also stood for fine Swiss watches. Montblanc secured its horological status with the acquisition of a villa in the Jura mountains, and unveiled in 1999 a cutting-edge production wing, adding to this in 2006 when it took over historic watchmaker Minerva. Today a workforce of skilled watchmakers assembles a handsome range of watches styled according to the brand’s classic aesthetic.

INNOVATIONS

One In A Thousand

Few watchmakers (TAG Heuer excepted) would dare to attempt surpassing the Minerva engineers’ triumph of 1916: a mechanical chronograph capable of timing to one-hundredth-of-a-second precision. But sure enough, Montblanc’s formidable new TimeWriter II offers 10-fold precision again: a chronograph precise to one-thousandth of a second.

The ExoTourbillon

In Montblanc’s new spin on the tourbillon (as seen in the Timewalker ExoTourbillon Minute Chronograph) the ticking balance wheel has been separated out from the tourbillon's traditional rotating cage. No longer adversely affected by the inertia of the cage, it tumbles freely – and mesmerically – above the dial, keeping far better time.

Montblanc Laboratory Test 500

From entry-level automatics to haut de gamme tourbillons – the watchmaker’s rigorous Montblanc Laboratory Test 500 procedure is applied to a whole range of timepieces. For 500 hours, the watches are subjected to a variety of tests designed to simulate the wear and tear of daily life – and more. It’s quality control with OCD.
