Montblanc – Going Back In Time

Montblanc - writing time - two centuries of chronograph

2 October 2011, Singapore –  This week from 5 to 9 October 2011 from 11am to 9pm, the Montblanc flagship boutique at Mandarin Gallery will take visitors through a walk down the memory lane on the measurement of time, an exploration on the beauty and instants that were recorded since 1821.  Montblanc has partnered the prestigious Musee Internationa d’Horlogerie, La Chaux-de-Fonds to present an impressive development of chronograph innovations and their usage for over two centuries.

Master watchmaker and brainchild of the watch chronograph, Nicholas Matthieu Rieussec, Montblanc has also created a new instrument for “writing time” that is of rare precision and style, encompassing an entire universe: beauty and invention, history and time, where moments are recorded by the pen of memory – the Montblanc Nicholas Rieussec Chronograph.

Montblanc first paid homage to the inventor of the device by dedicating its innovative Montblanc Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph to the ingenious watchmaker in 2008.

The Rieussec chronograph is the first where time display does not interact with the chronograph function, enhancing legibility of both indications and endowing a strong, unique look.    Similar to the original from 1821, the chronograph hands do not rotate above the dials; instead, remaining motionless while the seconds-disk and minutes-disk turn underneath them.
