Both here on WatchTime.com and on my blog, Watch-Insider.com, we’ve been showing you new watches that will launch at this month’s SIHH watch fair in Geneva. Here is one of the latest, the first watch from Montblanc’s 2014 collection, the Montblanc Star Twin Moonphase.
The Montblanc Star Twin Moonphase features a moon-phase indication at 6 o’clock for both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, an indication of the actual moon age, and an easy-to-read hand-type date indication at 2 o’clock. The mechanical moon-phase module was developed together with the specialists of Dubois-Dépraz in Switzerland’s Vallée de Joux and is exclusively reserved for Montblanc.
The steel case measures 42 mm in diameter and 12.7 mm thick, and it houses the Montblanc automatic caliber MB 4810/913. As I learned from Montblanc this week, the watch will priced below 4,000 euros. Not a bad deal at all, considering its interesting moon-phase complication and the fact that it is simply a very good-looking, elegant wristwatch.
More details on the Montblanc Star Twin Moonphase (pictured below) will follow, along with more new watches from Montblanc and other luxury watch brands as SIHH approaches!
