Interesting Complication

Jan 08, 2013,11:01 AM
 

For those of us who are less visually-creative, I am hopeful that Montblanc passes along some schematics to show the dual-cam system in operation.

As has become customary with the Rieussec line, this watch is aesthetically balanced and the added complication is interesting. I find myself wondering if a jump hour disk would have improved the watch. How difficult would it have been to implement the hour disc as a jump hour?

I think that it is a wonderful move for Montblanc to add a Rieussec that is not dependent on the distinctiveness of its chrono elements to please. Moreover, it appears that they have done so in a very big way, adding the interesting hours complication and...

I liked the dual time zone version before. "I liked it so much that I bought the company." :-) Unlike Victor Kiam (Remington Razor), I could not afford to buy the Montblanc company but I did get the watch! It still has the distinction of being the first w... 

Ahh, I was close!

I was close about the day/night indicator disc. But it's not a 24 hour disc. Montblanc decided to do this in a more clever and proper but difficult way instead of just a simple 24 hour disc. Looking forward to seeing the platinum and steel versions as wel... 

A mere 39 minutes!

LOL, I think I posted a mere 39 minutes before Mike revealed the full complication. FWIW, I assume it's a typo that blue is night and black is day? Nice touch with the Maltese Cross-type cam system that provides a gradual change from am to pm colors. I'm ...
