Montblanc unveils brand new watches collection at SIHH 2014, Meisterstück Heritage

Under the direction of its new CEO Jerome Lambert, formerly at Jaeger LeCoultre, Montblanc has introduced at SIHH 2014 the brand new Meisterstück Heritage collection, within a more affordable price range. The new collection can be recognized by its timeless, classic looks, and elegant shapes. The new Meisterstück Heritage collection comprises four models: Date Automatic, Moonphase,  Perpertual Calendar and the Pulsograph.

Case diameters are either 39 mm (Perpetual Calendar and the Moonphase) or 41 mm (Date Automatic and Pulsograph), and feature elegant short lugs, a domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating and a sapphire crystal in the case back. All metal that can be seen from above is polished, while the case band (also called mid case) and sides of the lugs feature a horizontal satin brush finish. The silvery white dial features a sunburst pattern and is slightly cambered, and features faceted applied hour indices and a Roman numeral “XII”.

The Meisterstück Heritage Moonphase features a satin brushed case band, with the small push piece to adjust the moonphase. Its automatic caliber MB 29.14  can be seen through the sapphire crystal in the case back.

Meisterstück Heritage Perpetual Calendar features a perpetual calendar which needs adjustment, but not before the year 2100.The watch is powered by self-winding mechanical movement caliber MB 29.15., which has a balance paced at 28,800 vph (4 hertz). Every Meisterstück Perpetual Calendar undergoes a comprehensive 500-hour quality test at the manufacture in Le Locle, and each watch that passes the 500-hour test is individually issued a test certificate.

All new pieces in the Meisterstück Heritage collection come on a black alligator strap and a pronged buckle made of 18 karat rose gold or stainless steel, matching the metal of the case. The Meisterstück Heritage Moonphase will be available in the summer of 2014 for € 11,500 Euros in rose gold and € 3,490 Euros in stainless steel.
