MONTBLANC – Heritage Chronométrie Quantième Complet Vasco da Gama
Over 500 years since the Portuguese explorer set out on his fantastic adventure, the Hamburg-based brand Montblanc has taken inspiration from Vasco de Gama to join him on the quest for precision which drove him in 1498. How has this voyage ended? A silver sunburst dial featuring both time and date functions. The sword-shape hands in the centre glide above the hour indices and numerals. The date display rims the chapter ring and is tracked by a red-tipped blue hand. The day and month lie in two separate windows at 12 o’ clock. A stunning blue lacquer disc illuminated by the South Cross constellation showcases the moon at 6 o’ clock. The 40mm steel case houses a self-winding MB29.16 which provides a 42-hour power reserve on top of all the functions it brings to life. Price: 4,350 €
