A flagship timepiece that was crafted as a tribute to the brand’s famed fountain pen, the Montblanc Meisterstuck Heritage Perpetual Calendar Watch helps to celebrate the 90th anniversary for the pen. A true reflection of the craftsmanship the brand produces, this piece captures that same quality the pen has always represented and delivers it for a remarkable price. Being the most affordable timepiece currently on the market with these features, it is anticipated by many.
The timepiece features one of the most recognized and respected complications in the horological world. The pricing of course is part of what makes this watch so sensational, but quality and reliability will not be sacrificed. The stainless steel and red gold versions are slightly more than the Montblanc Meisterstuck Heritage Perpetual Calendar, each of them is quite reasonable considering the mechanical brilliance inside, and the aesthetic beauty on the outside.
The heart of this timepiece is a feature that remains one of the most wanted for all watches. The skill required for this creation takes meticulous attention to detail, the utmost in skill and precision, and thousands of man hours to perfect every aspect of the design. However, the brand has managed to take all those factors and still deliver immaculate perfection with affordable costs for these timepieces. The entire collection is considerably lower priced than any other similar piece on the market.
The visual features that are designed into these timepieces are spectacular. The cambered silver white dial bursting with a sunray pattern, the applied indices and at the top of the face the single Roman numeral. The face of the Montblanc Meisterstuck Heritage Perpetual Calendar Watch features four sub-counters set in a very classic layout, on the top is the month display, then the left counter is used to indicate days of the week, the right to signify the date and the bottom the moon phase display.
The movement of the timepiece showcases a self-winding Calibre MB2915 offering a flat hoop balance and hairspring. The specific 38 jeweled movement has an operational frequency of 28,800 vph and it is enhanced with the Dubois-Depraz calendar module that of course enables the most critical aspect of this piece. The power reserve is magnificent at 42 hours and like all timepieces in this category, it will require adjustments at the beginning of the new century.
The timepiece is crafted in a polished and satin-brushed finish, with a 39mm case and a crown that features the brand emblem in relief. The sapphire crystal is manufactured with a double anti-reflective treatment and even on the rear side there is a sapphire section for viewing the movement and is water resistant up to 30 meters. The black alligator strap completes the masterpiece with a buckle that is designed to match the case.
