Heritage Chronométrie ExoTourbillon Minute Chronograph Vasco da Gama White Gold by Montblanc
The "Heritage Chronométrie ExoTourbillon Minute Chronograph Vasco da Gama White Gold" (ref. 112649) is a member of Montblanc's "Heritage" watch family. It features a dial in aventurine upper plate with one montblanc-cut diamond and vertical satin-finished silver lower part and is encased in a white gold case. This piece is suitable for men. The round case is 44mm in diameter, 14.8mm high and waterproof up to approximately 30 meters water depth (3 bar). A transparent case back makes it possible to admire the movement.
The watch is driven by an automatically winding Montblanc MB R230 mechanical caliber with a power reserve of 50 hours and indicators for hours, minutes and seconds (off-centered). The caliber has the popular chronograph (commonly known as a "stopwatch") function to measure the duration of an event. The measured duration can be read with an indicator for the seconds. The watch has an indicator for the date. As regulating organ, the caliber relies on 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 caliber: travel function.
The piece comes on a black alligator leather strap with a white gold pin buckle. Production of the watch is limited to 60 pieces. Montblanc asks its official retailers to sell the watch at the recommended retail price of 54'000 CHF.
