Here’s a new, staggering timepiece signed Montblanc. The Nicolas Rieussec chronograph you can see here has been announced by Montblanc as a representative piece for the SIHH 2013. It boasts more rotating disc action and it is dubbed the Montblanc Nicolas Rieussec Rising Hours.

This amazing timepiece features two discs, one atop the other, displaying the hours and day or night. The minutes are being displayed by a single hand, while, as usual, the seconds and minutes are indicated via discs. The digital display of the hours, on the other hand, is quite elaborate and comes with more jabber.

It is located at the 12 o’clock position, while the day or night indicator is wonderfully intricate. Our story gets quite interesting here, as the hour numerals get black during the day and blue after each sunset. The superb mechanism behind this movement is under patent protection, the manufacture automatic caliber MB R220 being unique among the world of timekeeping.

To this exquisite wristwatch it’s quite easy to set the proper date, as the certainty of the position of the mechanical movement is set based on the AM/PM principles. This way, there will be no accidental setting of the date, for example at midnight than at noon – a regular issue of many of today’s timepieces.

As for the watch’s endowments, it boasts with a 43 mm case available in 950 platinum, stainless steel or elegant 18-carat red gold. The limited edition platinum version consists of 28 units.
