Montblanc has launched new models of its Bohème collection which includes day/ night models, a complete calendar, and a perpetual calendar. It is the last of these which we are introducing today.
This is not the first perpetual calendar in this collection family, but the sub dials have been reduced from four to three, moved, enlargened (thus eliminating/ cutting some of the numerals), and the moon phase is now situated within the sub dial indicating the day of the month.
Bohème models are characterised by polished cases with curved and faceted horns, onion crowns, floral Arabic numerals, hour rings, and leaf-shaped hands. For this new model, the dial also features guilloché and a gem-set (58 Wesselton diamonds) bezel. There is also a diamond set into the crown.
The Bohème Manufacture Perpetual Calendar is in a new 38mm case in either stainless steel (regular production model) or red gold variants, the latter in a limited edition of 100 pieces. The silvery-white guilloché dial features black Arabic numerals, red gold or stainless steel hour and minute hands, and a rhodium-coated skeletonised second time zone hand.
The new Bohème Manufacture Perpetual Calendar uses a new in-house automatic Calibre MB 29.22 movement that powers the following functions – time, day, date, month, moon phase, leap year, and a 24-hour dual time indicator embedded within the day sub dial at 9 o’clock. It beats at 28,800VPH and with a power reserve of 48 hours.
Both variants come on a grey alligator strap and either an 18 carat red gold or stainless steel pin buckle set with a diamond encircled by an engraved Montblanc emblem.
