Hello all !
It's official now, part of the announcements Montblanc will make in a couple of weeks in Geneva : a brand new ExoTourbillon model. This time, a flyback chronograph.
For the record, a flyback is way more complicated than a traditional chrono : +70% of parts. That's why it's often considered as a Grande Complication.
Again, we find here the ExoTourbillon, patented by Montblanc. In a nutshell, for those who are not familiar with it, 4 items to consider :
- It's positioned ABOVE the movement
- It's larger than a traditional tourbillon
- It rotates in 4 minutes, instead of the traditional 60 seconds
- It's, as you can see, at twelve o'clock (and not 6 o'clock)
This new model is a limited edition of 18 pieces in gold with an enamel dial. Count 250'000 EUR.
Again with the Exo range, and that might stand as my only regret : 47 mm.
A little bit oversized, don't you think ?
