The Superb Metamorphosis II Timepiece by Montblanc

By Brody Patterson


Updated on

The Montblanc Metamorphosis II is a truly impressive timepiece. The case, made from 18-carat red gold is perfectly round and measures an above average 52 millimeters in diameter, with the entire thing comprising no fewer than 746 components. Created by Minerva, Montblanc’s watchmaking workshop, it is another example of the beautiful things the German company can make, even when not creating the magnificent writing instruments it is famous for.

As suggested by its name, this intriguing watch can transform according to the owner’s wishes, its two subdials varying between conventional timekeeping and a chronograph. The transforming complication comprises an amazing 494 components and uses a lever which, when it is moved, winds an auxiliary mainspring which then supplies power exclusively to the main complication of the watch. Once this has been put in motion, the “dance” of the subdials commences: while in its standard state, the timepiece indicates the hours, minutes, and date, in alternative mode it showcases a sportier monopusher chronograph, with Arabic numerals and dark grey areas surrounding the two subdials.

Montblanc will only create 18 of these exquisite 18-carat gold watches – and their price tag matches their level of finish and highly exclusive nature. Each of the Metamorphosis II timepieces will cost a staggering €270,000, which is the equivalent of about $342,000.
