Watches that simultaneously show the time in more than one zone are accordingly an important specialty for watchmakers. Such timepieces belong to a genre in which Montblanc has achieved several attention-getting feats. These so-called “time-zone watches” can satisfy very different requirements for globetrotters and frequent flyers. Among these functions are the simultaneous display of the times in both the user’s local and home zones or the UTC (Coordinated Universal Time +/- time zone) function, but also the ability to show all of the planet’s 24 time zones at a glance, including day/night indication for the home zone, as well as showing the date, facilitating quick and easy changes from one zone’s display to another, etc.

After observing the evolution of Montblanc’s Nicolas Rieussec chronographs, one might be tempted to conclude that time is a disc. Montblanc first used rotating discs to replace the hands on the chronograph’s counters for sixty elapsed seconds and thirty elapsed minutes. A rotating disc was afterwards installed to indicate the hour in a second time zone. And now the Montblanc manufacture debuts its Nicolas Rieussec Rising Hours, which relies on two discs, one atop the other, to show not only the twelve hours, but to also indicate whether each of the dozen is a daytime or night-time hour.

Montblanc’s Star Collection embraces a whole series of classically beautiful wristwatches that wed the brand’s unmistakable aesthetic and the traditional art of Swiss watchmaking. These watches follow no trends and will therefore never go out of style. Instead, they embody timelessly elegant design which will seem as convincing and harmonious to tasteful individuals many years from now as it seems to their discerning forebears today. New models will soon be added to further enhance this imperishably classical look by combining it with a mechanical inner life crafted in accord with the best Swiss tradition: there will be a diamond-studded watch for ladies, as well as a bi-color version in stainless steel and gold in sizes for ladies and gents. This latter duo is conceived for two people who already belong together or hope to become a loving couple.
