The new Homage to Nicolas Rieussec II chronograph in the Montblanc Nicolas Rieussec collection displays the date, a second time zone indication and a day/night indication. This 43 mm steel timepiece will be launched in a limited edition of 565.

The particular dial conceals the self-winding Montblanc MB R200 calibre including its 319 component parts. It combines traditional watchmaking craftsmanship with advanced technical research. A column-wheel links the movement’s gear-train to the monopusher chronograph mechanism through the mediation of a vertical clutch that operates with practically no friction and prevents any undesired jumping action of the seconds hand when the chronograph function is activated. The balance-wheel oscillates with 28,800 vibrations per hour. The double barrel ensures a 72-hour power reserve. The movement is produced and assembled in the Montblanc workshops in Villeret in Switzerland.

  • To me, the watch is loosing its appeal now. The first Homage version was the best, because it was using the original design of the chronograph.

  • Some of the watches created by Montblanc are truly outstanding, yet these watches do not cost an arm and a leg unlike some of the other watch brands.

    Hence, I think Montblanc ought to be regarded as serious watchmakers, as creating fabulous yet affordable watches is not easy.
