MONTBLANC – Heritage Chronométrie Twincounter Date
Unveiled at the 2016 SIHH, the Heritage Chronométrie Twincounter Date is based on the twin-counter chronographs designed in the 1950s by Minerva, the famous manufacturer founded in Villeret in 1858 and taken over by Montblanc in 2007.
A slim bezel runs around the silver white sunray dial displaying two perfectly central secondary dials with azure hearts or rims and small blue hands. The small seconds count down at 9 whilst the date and hand appear at 3. They straddle gold leaf-shape hour and minute hands which glide over a rose gold hour rim with facetted markers, two Arabic numerals (6 and 12) and a black minute track.
The functions are fuelled by the MB24.23 calibre in the 40mm steel case that’s 9.85mm thick.
Price: 2,850 €
