The new Montblanc Star Legacy Orbis Terrarum takes its inspiration from Minerva’s pocket watches from the end of the 19th and early 20th centuries. They were distinguished by their polished pebble-shaped cases and onion-shaped crowns. Montblanc’s take on the historic design comes in a 43mm stainless-steel case with a height of 13.84mm and a water resistance up to 50 meters. It houses the self-winding caliber MB 29.20 with the brand’s genuine world time complication.
While traveling, the timepiece is easy to set thanks to a single pusher. The dial is composed of an upper sapphire crystal rotating disc with applied 3-dimensional rhodium-coated indices, a Northern Hemisphere map, and meridians surrounded by a ring depicting the 24 cities of the 24 time zones. Below the sapphire disc appears the day/night disc rotating in 24 hours and alternating from light blue for the day to dark blue for the night. A red arrow is located at 12 o’clock to point towards the related city and the owner’s local time zone.
The Montblanc Star Legacy Orbis Terrarum is currently sold out online but is available via select Montblanc boutiques for $7,000.
