Montblanc Collection Villeret 1858 / 8-piece limited series
To mark the 150th anniversary of the Minerva‘s founding and the inauguration of the renovated premises of the Institut Minerva de Recherche en Haute Horlogerie in Villeret, Montblanc is proud to the launch the Grand Tourbillon Heures Mystérieuses. The name alone is enough to alert the watch connoisseur to the highlights in this jubilee watch, but a glance – however fleeting – at the new timepiece will tell him that this tourbillon is unlike any he has seen before.
The Grand Tourbillon Heures Mystérieuses timepieces are available in even more limited editions than previous models: to be precise, unique versions in platinum and editions of eight in either white or rose gold.
The large tourbillon with its in-house spiral and hand crafted carbon-steel tourbillon bridge is a piece of art in itself, positioned outside the actual going train. With its Heures Mystérieuses time display with floating hour and minute hands, the calibre MB M65.60 is one of 2009‘s most fascinating new products. It is hand-wound, has a 50-hour power reserve and consists of a total of 281 individual parts, all meticulously finished by hand.
