Montblanc presented two new Montblanc watches at the Geneva Watch Fair this year: the new Montblanc Star Automatic Calendar Watch and the new Montblanc Star Full Calendar. The biggest change of these two watches is mainly on the dial. The dial has changed the Arabic numerals of the original models to Roman numerals. Relatively speaking, the dials of the models are more retro. The new Montblanc Star Collection models have always been elegant and gentleman-like, and this year’s new watch is no exception. It inherits this series of elegant design specifications. The silver-white dial is equipped with willow-shaped hour and minute hands, and Unique rail-type minute scale ring.
In addition to these two watches, two Nicholas Case chronographs were also displayed on site. Montblanc launched a Nicholas Case chronograph last year.

There are four new Montblanc 1858 watches: two new 1858 self-winding watches, a 1858 automatic chronograph and a 1858 Geosphere world time watch.

Montblanc’s new heritage watch
A new heritage watch from Montblanc this year was also on display. Legacy watches have long been known for their elegance and elegance, and this year is no exception. Among the new models, a new one-button chronograph is very eye-catching. Unlike traditional chronographs, this watch has a chronograph button on the crown, which is more simple in design and adds another advantage in technology. In addition, the design of the watch comes from the era when people used coin-operated phones and needed to calculate the cost according to the duration of the call. The dial is very retro, decorated with smoke-gray Arabic numerals and dots as time scales, and a rack-shaped minute scale; The minute chronograph dial is located at the ‘three o’clock’ position and is marked with three, six and nine minute chronograph scales. This mid-range single-button chronograph movement pays tribute to the long-standing history of watchmaking by Minerva’s single-button chronograph.
