In addition, the three-dimensional dial of this chronograph is also decorated with different decorations. The small seconds dial and the 30-minute chronograph dial are decorated with a snail-shaped pattern, and the outer ring is decorated with milky white. The second time zone and day and night display are used. Sun pattern. The hour, minute, second, second time zone display on the dial, and the chronograph minute display use sword-shaped hands, while the day and night and chronograph second display use stick-shaped salt, and the dial is decorated with rose gold digital hour markers. Each element makes the delicate face plate perfect, and the gray satin outer edge of the face plate is marked with a chronograph scale of 1/5 seconds, which allows the wearer to read the seconds clearly.
The display on the dial is rich in information, while its design remains clear and easy to read. The local time is indicated by the central hour and minute hands, and the small seconds dial is set at 9 o’clock; the departure time display dial is set at 6 o’clock, and 4 The day and night display at the middle of the o’clock and 5 o’clock work together; the 30-minute counter is designed at the 3 o’clock position, and the time of the double tracking hand is displayed through the central chronograph second hand. In operation, the wearer can easily adjust the local time by pressing the handle located in the 8 o’clock direction, and the hour hand can be adjusted by the hour without affecting the display of the minutes and the departure time.
This chronograph combines two major precision functions, including the brand’s patented external tourbillon and single push-button double-tracking hand, perfectly embodying Montblanc’s exquisite traditional watchmaking technology. The brand patented external tourbillon launched in 2010 was completely developed by the watchmaker of Montblanc Villeret watch factory. Its name comes from the Greek initial ‘Exo’, which means ‘external’ or ‘external’. Its screw balance The tourbillon is placed outside the rotating frame of the tourbillon. The innovative patented mechanical structure of the tourbillon makes the size of the frame smaller and is not affected by the weight of the balance. It uses 30% less energy than the traditional tourbillon, and the balance is placed in the rotating frame. Outside, free from frame inertia interference, bringing more refined performance. Another feature of the external tourbillon is its low operating speed. The traditional tourbillon has a running cycle of 1 week per minute, while Montblanc’s patented external tourbillon has a running time of 4 minutes and 1 week. This design can reduce the tourbillon. The energy requirements of the box are not detrimental to its offsetting effect on gravity. The patented energy-saving structure of Montblanc’s external tourbillon allows the movement to be equipped with a sophisticated and complex double-tracking chronograph function at the same time. This chronograph function uses the barrel of a general chronograph movement and power reserve, but it brings more precision. Timing performance.
The two-second chronograph chronograph is the world’s top precision function. It is the pinnacle of the chronograph’s complex functions. The extremely complicated mechanical structure has nearly 70% more parts than the traditional chronograph movement. Stop the chronograph second hand to indicate the time of the first segment, while the second chronograph second hand will not stop and continue. It can calculate the travel time of the two objects at the same time without interfering with each other. Montblanc’s chasing hand timing function, with 2 guide wheels and a traditional double clamp, which can work together. Through the transparent back, you can see its beauty. Press the handle integrated with the crown to start it. Timing function, 2 column wheels and manual chamfering lever are responsible for transmitting different instructions to make it into effect. The thin stainless steel hairspring has delicate curves, which can be used to clamp the two-second chase wheel. After pressing the handle at 2 o’clock, the first time interval is displayed. Pressing the same handle again will release the chase wheel, so that the chase chronograph second hand catches up with the chronograph second hand, and then advance together. The redesigned seconds and chronograph seconds hands allow the wearer to simply press the button integrated into the crown.
