Grande Chronograph Regulator Watch Created by Montblanc

Jan 30, 2009
Montblanc has unveiled the Villeret Grande Chronograph Regulator watch, a sophisticated new monopusher chronograph equipped with a hand-finished Montblanc movement, exclusive hand-wound 16-360 caliber offering a power reserve and a regulator hour complicated functions. The regulator sub-dial features an extra hour hand that can indicate time in a second time zone. There is also the day/night indicator.

The constructive and decorative characteristics of the movement reflect the best traditions of Haute Horlogerie. Montblanc master watchmakers have meticulously beveled and polished every part of the movement, including the bridges, chronograph levers and wheels in the winding mechanism. The in-house balance wheel operates at a frequency of 18,000 vibrations per hour.

The 16-360 caliber incorporates a column-wheel for its chronograph control. The elegant regulator is of the Swan-neck type. The beauty of the movement is revealed through a sapphire crystal exhibition window protected by a hinged case back.

The Montblanc Villeret Grande Chronograph Regulator watch is secured to the wrist on a hand-stitched alligator leather strap.

The timepiece is created in three variations produced from three different materials - 1 piece in platinum, 8 pieces in 18K white gold, and 58 pieces crafted from rose gold. The retail prices for the Montblanc watch are as breathtaking as their technical and aesthetic features - $146,000 for the platinum version, $92,644 for the 18kt white gold version and $86,000 for the 18kt rose gold one.
