The Montblanc Collection Princesse Grace de Monaco

I don’t quite get it, to be honest – why would a brand, which is extremely specialized in manufacturing an exact range of items, venture into relatively unknown fields. Is it because their actual field isn’t economically viable or just an incursion based on curiosity? Nevertheless, some brands manage to conquer other domains than their own, such as MontBlanc.

One of the world’s most famous manufacturers of writing instruments is now out with an amazing collection, the MontBlanc Collection Princesse Grace de Monaco, which was unveiled at the SIHH 2013, alongside other stunning collections – the TimeWalker Traveller Watches, the Villeret ExoTourbillon Chronographe and Nicolas Rieussec Rising Hours. Quite obviously, the epicenter of the collection is a symbol of classy womanhood, a charming personality – Princesse Grace de Monaco.

The staggeringly beautiful timepieces comprised by the MontBlanc Collection Princesse Grace de Monaco boasts with delicate cases measuring around 34 mm in diameter. The brand has used the common round shape for these cases, but the surrounding bezels and the dial rings (Réhaut) are oval, with their axis along the longitudinal axis of the watch, from 12 to 6 o’clock.

The side of the case is dominated by a dynamic silhouette with sloping lugs and a concave base, for the perfect fit. The domed sapphire-crystal glass boasts the same shape and adds to the unique overall appearance of the timepieces. The entire collection of exquisite wristwatches, distinctively from the previous series, has been endowed with fluted crowns and bears, alongside a screwed caseback with sapphire crystal, revealing the innovative mechanism.

The movement is mechanical automatic, the MB 4810/409 – it indicates both the level of innovation of this watches as well as their significant degree of elegance and authenticity. The caliber MB 4810/409 itself is quite an astonishing contraption, perfectly fitting the principles behind the “Swiss made” phrase. It comes with automatic winding and works at 28,800 vibrations per hour, or 4 Hz.

In addition, it includes 25 jewels and a power reserve of around 42 hours. The features that distinguish the timekeeping members of this collection are the hours and minutes from the center, provided with or lacking a center seconds hand and date window.

The timepieces of the MontBlanc Collection Princesse Grace de Monaco have been garnished with exquisite materials and stones, like the unique MontBlanc Diamond.
