Heritage Chronométrie ExoTourbillon Minute Chronograph Red Gold by Montblanc
The "Heritage Chronométrie ExoTourbillon Minute Chronograph Red Gold" (112542) is from Montblanc's "Heritage" collection. It features a dial in ivory grainé upper plate and vertical satin-finished silver lower part and is encased in a red gold case. The watch is suitable for men. The round case is 44mm in diameter, 14.8mm thick and waterproof up to approximately 30 meters water depth (3 bar). The transparent case back allows to admire the movement.
The watch's functions are provided by an automatically winding Montblanc MB R230 mechanical movement offering a power reserve of 50 hours and displays for hours, minutes and seconds (off-centered). The movement has the sporty chronograph (commonly known as a "stopwatch") function to measure the duration of an event. The measured duration can be read with a seconds hand. The movement displays the date. As regulating organ, the caliber uses a tourbillon which causes the balance wheel and the escapement to rotate slowly. In the days of pocket watches, the tourbillon increased the accuracy of the watch by preventing the minute components from working in the same orientation for a prolonged period of time. Today, the complication mostly serves an aethetic and emotional purpose and is a testament of the manufacturer's watchmaking abilities. Other features of the piece: travel function.
The timepiece is carried on a black alligator leather strap with a red gold pin buckle. Recommended retail price from official retailers: approximately 45'600 CHF. Please use the "Contact Shop" button to ask an official retailer of your choice for their offer."
