— Discovered at the SIHH, the Montblanc 4810 ExoTourbillon Slim 110 Years Edition timepieces are highlighted by miniature hand-paintings of three continents on their dials.
The theme of travel across the Atlantic is beautifully highlighted in three Montblanc ExoTourbillon Slim 110 Years Editions with a miniature hand painting of a map of the North American, Asian and European Continent on the dial. The lower section of the dial has been decorated with the Côtes de Genève motif to highlight the ExoTourbillon construction at 6 o’clock, and a single rhodium-plated XII and rhodium-plated skeletonized hands maximize the view of the map. A discreet minute track has been added to the exterior of the dial with a red “60” at 12 o’clock for ease of reading. A close look at the ExoTourbillon Slim 110 Years Editions reveal a 42 mm white gold case with a number of subtle design details, including a thin bezel with satin finishing on the border and horns that, while straight from above, are slightly curved on the underside for maximum comfort on the wrist.
These limited editions features the Calibre MB 29.24—powered for the very first time by a micro-rotor decorated with a Côtes de Genève en Eventail pattern that reveals an undisturbed view on this patented manufacture movement beneath a large sapphire crystal on the back of the timepiece. Montblanc has chosen not to feature the crown setting quick stop-second indication on this model so as not to cover the hand-painted dial.
The quick stop-seconds are indicated on the tourbillon cage with a red arrow. This practical quick stop-second function is made possible thanks to the construction of the ExoTourbillon, which halts the screw balance by means of a tiny spring, allowing the user to set the time to the exact second. The quick stop-second mechanism instantly stops the balance from rotating, instead of halting the tourbillon cage, which can cause the balance to continue swinging and upset the precision of the Swiss replica watches. The quick stop-second mechanism can be achieved by pulling the crown at 3 o’clock.
The Montblanc 4810 ExoTourbillon Slim 110 Years Editions are fitted with a black alligator strap with a white gold pin buckle.
