For the first time in its 4810 Collection, Montblanc introduces its highly functional manufacture dual time complication.
A skeletonised regate-shaped home time hand positioned in the centre of the dial is highlighted in a blue colour to distinguish it from the local hour hand, which is red gold-plated and completely filled with Super-LumiNova® for a better readability at night. A 24-hour subdial with day/night indication, which is connected to the central home time hand, is visible at 12 o’clock. The dial also includes a small second subdial at 6 o’clock, with a circular “azuré” finishing as well as a date display, which is linked to the local time, at 3 o’clock.
The dual time function comes into play while travelling as the user can easily set the local time hour hand to the new destination time zone through the crown without affecting the home time hour hand. The minute hand and the second hand also both continue to run uninterruptedly during this setting process, thus preserving the exact time.
The Montblanc 4810 Dual Time follows the Maison’s strong and elegant design codes as can be seen in the refined 42 mm stainless steel case and elegant silvery-white guilloché dial featuring the exploding Montblanc Star pattern. The dial is completed with classic red gold-plated Roman numerals and a precise minute track with the number “60” highlighted in red and Super- LumiNova® dots for the odd hours.
The Montblanc 4810 Dual Time is equipped with a black alligator leather strap and a stainless steel folding clasp and is water resistant to 50 meters.
