montblanc star

Combining a resolutely sporty case with intensely guilloched dial, as well as heavy-looking Roman numerals at 2, 4, 8 and 10 o’clock may not be liked by many. But who knows? Montblanc Star 4810 Red Gold Chronograph Automatic dauphine hands, the red-and-gold triangle pointing at the date window at 6 o’clock don’t  seem very natural. The watch is powered by the Montblanc 4810/501 Caliber, which is based on the well-known ETA Valjoux 7750 natural born automatic chronograph movement. Featuring power reserve of some 48 hours, this COSC-certified chronometer movement is accurate, reliable and you won’t have problems fixing it when it is broken, because just about any serviceman out there knows how to disassemble it with his eyes closed. Available in brown alligator-skin strap with 18 K red-gold pin buckle. Price Rs. 8,67,650

Montblanc Timewalker Watch with its fine surface finish, and sophisticated dial work of the Montblanc Timewalker make Montblanc watches are suitable for any occasions, formal and casual.

More so when the world sees you wearing it with the black alligator-skin strap.   Price: 1, 32,700

The oblong is the inexhaustible motif of the Montblanc Profile Lady Collection. Conceived for women with the feeling for what is special the Montblanc Profile Lady Elegance Diamonds is both straightforward and playful. An exceptional jewel of a watch in valuable stainless steel that shows the time with clear elegance. A quartz watch, it constantly attracts attention through its imaginative diamond edging totalling 0.30 carat. The crossover numerals are already familiar from the limited Profile watches. At 3, 6 and 9 o’clock, 35 glittering top Wesselton diamonds assume the shape of Roman numerals which run over beyond the mother-of-pearl dial onto the lunette. Another eyecatching feature is the star-shaped Montblanc Diamond, which shines at 12 o’clock – symbolising the preciousness and timeless beauty. It is surrounded by seven smaller diamonds which enrich the clarity of this jewel of a watch with creative playfulness. Price: 240,550
