Montblanc Star Legacy Collection 2020: The Star Legacy Automatic Date and the Star Legacy Chronograph Day&Date

The Montblanc Star Legacy product line is inspired by Minerva pocket watches from the 19th century and the beginning of 20th century. The nowadays timepieces include round polished pebble-shaped cases, like those found on antique pocket watches; onion-shaped crowns with the recognisable Montblanc emblem; refined dials with the iconic exploding star guilloché pattern; and Sfumato straps coming from the Pelletteria in Florence, Italy.

In 2020, Montblanc is introducing a new 43 mm size to the Star Legacy product line with the presentation of two new men’s pieces, the Star Legacy Automatic Date and the Star Legacy Chronograph Day&Date.

Montblanc Star Legacy Automatic Date 43 mm

The new Montblanc Star Legacy Automatic Date comes in a 43mm stainless steel case with a domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating and a sapphire crystal case back. There are two dial colours, one in ivory with a silvery-white flange and featuring 18 K rose gold-coated Roman numerals, indexes and hands, and the other in anthracite with black rhodium coated Roman numerals, indexes and hands. Both are enhanced with luminescent material SuperLuminova for a better readability at night.

The timepieces are powered by the MB 24.17 automatic movement that has a date at three o’clock and a 38-hour power reserve. The timepieces are water resistant to 50 meters and come fitted with a brown or grey Sfumato strap and are available on a stainless steel 3 links bracelet that has been partly polished and partly satin-finished.
