Let's come back on a Montlblanc 2016 Novelty: 4810 Orbis Terrarum Pocket Watch.
Montlbanc released a series of watches to celebrate the 110th birthday of the brand.
Among them, two new Orbis Terrarum, a 43 mm wristwatch with a colorful dial, and this pocket watch.
You will notice that the city ring is not organized the same way than on the wristwatch:
A pocket watch with some generous dimensions, to say the least: 53 mm big, 16, 80 high.
When it can be problematic for a wrist watch to be that big and thick, it is not an issue for a pocket watch... A pocket watch which can also be a desk clock due to a lever located on the backside:
My first thought was to regret the absence of a hunter case back, but on a second thought, I felt it was not that important, because, like in the wristwatch version, the movement housed is a Sellita with a modular world time, the Cal MB 29.20, an automatic movement beating at 28800 vibrations per hour, with a 42 hours power reserve. Nothing exceptional, but accurate and reliable.
Here are the two pictures I took during my trip in Hamburg:
I quite like this pocket watch. I find it brings some additional romantisme to a complication which is already, by nature, romantic.
If you travel in a cruiser... Or if you want a nice object on your desk...
