Just Like a Star
A perpetual calendar is an immensely complex machine – it has to be, in order to compute the day, date, month and year perpetually. Yet complex thoughts cannot be further from your mind when you’re looking at this elegant and feminine number by Montblanc.
Dedicated to women, this Boheme Perpetual Calendar is adorned with 60 brilliant-cut diamonds set on the bezel. While they provide much fire and sparkle, it’s the watch’s deep blue aventurine dial that steals the show.
Spangled with thousands of tiny shimmering inclusions, it is redolent of a velvety midnight sky brimming with stars. Completing the breathtaking view is the moon phase display with its gorgeous golden moon and the accompanying six-pointed stars which are a discreet homage to the Montblanc emblem.
For women who desire high complications, this 88-piece limited edition balances complexity with elegance. Something also has to be said about its immaculate poise and symmetry. And did you know that this watch had gone through Montblanc’s signature 500-hour Laboratory Test? So don’t be fooled by its precious demeanour; this dazzling timepiece can actually take a few hits – but maybe don’t put it under a bus.
