Montblanc introduced a new version of its entry-level perpetual calendar models with a new case and a stunning smoked sapphire dial.
The famous brand introduced the first generation Heritage Chronométrie Perpetual Calendar model back in 2014 which was highly acclaimed due to its relatively affordable price tag.
The new model that goes in the same path with the previous version is offered in a stainless steel case measuring 40mm in diameter and 9.6mm in height – 0.7mm thinner than the original. The case, which offers a comfortable use on the wrist with its tapered lugs, is equipped with scratch resistant sapphire crystals on both sides.
The biggest upgrade for the model is undoubtedly its dial. The model is equipped with a smoked sapphire dial that was originally available only with the 18K gold version, which shows off the components of the movement. All the hour markers are arranged in baton shape except the big Arabic numeral one at 12 o’clock. The perpetual calendar indications are displayed on transparent counters with dark blue tracks. The moon phase has also been upgraded with a three-dimensional illustration of the moon.
The new model is powered by the manufacture movement Caliber Ref MB 29.15. The movement, which requires no correction until the year 2100, is based on the Sellita SW300 caliber and equipped with a perpetual calendar module by Dubois Depraz.
Montblanc Heritage Chronométrie Perpetual Calendar Sapphire (Ref. 118513) is offered on a blue alligator strap and is priced at €12,700.
