Swiss manufacturing has always been synonymous with fine industry. The extraordinary level of craftsmanship, timeless design, and comprehensive functions and equipment, in every detail, reflects the excellent intentions of traditional Swiss manufacturing. No exception, that’s why so many watches can be “lifelong companions” to accompany the owner’s life
The Montblanc brand from Switzerland is just such a watchmaker who specializes in detail. Its masterpiece series is celebrating the 90th anniversary of this year. Adhering to the ‘Taipei spirit’, Montblanc has launched a number of new products in the new Taipan series: including leather materials with unique materials, exquisite luxury watches and jewellery watches.
At the same time, in order to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Taipan series, the brand also launched a special exhibition, and also launched a new watch-Montblanc Taipan Heritage Series Moon Phase Watch, this watch has two sizes of 41 mm (fine Steel) and 39 mm (rose gold). The Montblanc Meisterstück Heritage Moon Phase watch features a moon phase display disc combined with a date indicator and is paired with classic blue steel hands. The traditional moon phase display disc is presented through the “dual bubble” hollow arched window of the date sub-dial, showing the wonderful transition of the moon phase over time.
This moon phase watch inherits the design features of the Montblanc Meisterstuck heritage. The case with a diameter of 39 mm is made of 18K rose gold, and the side of the case is straight and vertical, and is polished with horizontal matt. The slender, convex bezel is mirror-polished to highlight the slightly arched decorative dial. The hour markers on the dial are set with multi-face-cut inlaid hour markers. The 12 o’clock position is decorated with the Roman numeral ‘XII’ and is accompanied by the toffee hour and minute hands.
Driving the hands precisely is the Calibre MB 29.14 automatic movement inside the watch. Through the sapphire crystal glass on the bottom of the case, the automatic rotor of the movement and the balance wheel vibrating at 4 Hz are visible at a glance.
The Montblanc Meisterstück Heritage Moon Phase watch features a large black checkered crocodile leather strap with 18K rose gold buckle, creating a classic and timeless look for the watch. The watch will be officially launched in the summer of 2014. The stainless steel model is priced at 3,490 euros and the 18K rose gold model is priced at 11,500 euros.
Fashion trends are changing rapidly, but the legendary master class seems to have not changed, and still inherits the image when it debuted in Hamburg, Germany in 1924. The iconic classic design style is a timeless statement of fashion and a timeless symbol of elegance. The legendary history of the Taipan series has not only shaped it into a world-renowned icon of luxury, but it is now a continuation of the Montblanc brand’s achievements and the vision of creating a luxury writing instrument in the future.
