MONTBLANC

Montblanc is a German luxury company focused on pens, watches, jewellery and leather items. Montblanc was founded in 1906 (named Simplo Filler Pen) with the introductory product offered in 1909 under the name Rouge et Noir in 1909. One year later the first pen named Montblanc emerged. Montblanc's Meisterstück brand (Masterpiece) first appeared in 1924, for the premium fountain pen versions. One of Montblanc most recognized visual items is the white six-pointed star with rounded edges (stands for the Mont Blanc mountain snowcap from above, where "4810," in Montblanc's product refers to the height of the Mont Blanc mountain). In 1977 Dunhill bought Montblanc and expanded the brand to a large selection of luxury goods. Nowadays Montblanc is owned by Richemont (Piaget, IWC, Panerai, Vacheron Constantin). Notable Montblanc watch models include the Montblanc Nicolas Rieussec, Montblanc Star, Montblanc Star Classique, Montblanc Star 4810, Montblanc Timewalker, Montblanc Flyback, Montblanc Meisterstueck, Montblanc Princess Grace de Monaco, Montblanc Sport. In general there are Montblanc ladies' watches, Montblanc men's watches, Montblanc automatic watches, Montblanc quartz watches. All of the Montblanc watches are available at the Montblanc boutiques and at certified retailers. Montblanc watches prices range from anywhere below $3,000 to more than $10,000.

Five Affordable Luxury Watches from SIHH 2014

cartier_thumbnail

At the big watch shows, the brands tend to promote their halo products – the ones with all the bells and whistles, and the highest prices.

Fortunately for those of us who don't have as much dough as Pizza Hut, several brands presented new and noteworthy watches in the … [Read more...]

And even when a brand doesn't have what we'd call an überwatch, it sometimes releases one piece so unexpected, off-the-wall, or controversial that it overshadows the rest of its new releases (Exhibit A: Last year's debut of the first … [Read more...]

However, the few skeletonized timepieces (also referred to as "openworked") that did make their debut here were quite notable.
