Paying tribute to early 20th century seafaring, an era where steam liners crossing the Atlantic Ocean were at their height, Montblanc introduced the maison’s first-ever pocket watch in the Montblanc 4810 collection.
Named after orbis terrarum, the Latin word for “world” or “earth”, the highly functional worldtime complication shows the passage of time on a world map as seen from the North Pole. Under the sapphire crystal dial’s multi layer construction with cut-out continents, a day & night disc graded from yellow and green to dark blue – turns to show how the day turns into night in the different time zones.
While the local time is indicated by the red gold-plated central hour and minute hands, a 24-hour ring shows the local times in 24 cities around the world. A stainless steel chain, whose distinctive shape recalls the ropes used in seafaring, holds the 53 mm stainless steel case. Engraved with the transatlantic liner and Blue Riband winner “Deutschland” on the back, this horological work of art is limited to 110 pieces,@8500 Euro
