SIHH 2016 is gearing up to be a serious exhibition of the world’s finest watches come January 18th.
Montblanc is one brand to keep an eye on as they’ll be presenting three new watches at the Geneva event.
The first is the Heritage Chronomètrie Annual Calendar Chronograph, a piece which will offer added functionality in a traditional design with an exceptional price tag for broadened appeal.
The 42mm dial perfectly displays the chronograph functions including the seconds, minutes, hours, day, date, month and a moon phase annual calendar. All of this will be encased in a sleek 18-carat rose gold edition retailing for $US20,700 or the steel for US$10,450.

The second piece will be the Montblanc Heritage Chronomètrie Twincounter Date. It features an automatic caliber with a small second and pointer date enclosed in a 40mm steel case. The movement is an automatic winding caliber MB 24.23 with a 38-hour power reserve. Retail for the Twincounter will be $US3,000.
There’s also something for the sophisticated adventure man with the release of a new TimeWalker piece. The Montblanc TimeWalker ExoTourbillon Minute Chronograph LE 100 will feature the maker’s exclusive ExoTourbillon mechanism – an in-house innovation which frees the conventional Tourbillon’s large screw balance from the rotating cage.
This package includes a chronograph encased in lightweight titanium. Expect the TimeWalker ExoTourbillon Minute Chronograph LE 100 to fetch $US62,000.
