Montblanc introduces the Heritage Chronométrie Quantième Complet

Lets not beat around the bush. Montblanc is making waves with its watch collection, and it is thanks to timepieces like the newly introduced Heritage Chronométrie Quantième Complet. ‘Quantième complet’ is French for complete calendar, which means this watch offers separate apertures for the day and month, a dedicated date hand, and a moonphase indicator stationed near the six o’clock position.

Meet Montblanc’s new world-timer, the Heritage Spirit Orbis Terrarum

Earlier in the year Montblanc introduced the Heritage Spirit collection, which included the incredible Heritage Spirit Pulsograph, and the Heritage Spirit Perpetual Calendar. Both were extremely well received for a number of reasons and now, the brand has a new world-timer known as the Heritage Spirit Orbis Terrarum.

Montblanc looks to be on a serious roll this year with multiple desirable watches.
