Montblanc Her­itage Chronométrie Chronograph Quan­tième An­nuel Watch Hands-On

THE MAN Magazine Cambodia - - 360 Watches -

We’ve been wait­ing to get our hands on the Montblanc Her­itage Chronométrie Chronograph Quan­tième An­nuel watch since we first heard about it. For those not caught up about this piece, Montblanc is of­fer­ing a qual­ity, good-look­ing, high-com­pli­ca­tion watch for a frac­tion of the price that other an­nual cal­en­dar watches go for. Per­son­ally, I’m al­ways skep­ti­cal when I hear about ”af­ford­able al­ter­na­tives” to most things (not ex­clu­sive to watches), but Montblanc has suc­cess­fully re­al­ized where to save costs and where not to in the cre­ation of this piece. In short, Montblanc has hit a home run, and I’m now fol­low­ing a brand I’ve al­ways liked closer than I ever have. Montblanc puts this watch through the Montblanc Lab­o­ra­tory 500 Test, which is a 500-hour test de­signed to sim­u­late a va­ri­ety of sce­nar­ios it’s likely to ex­pe­ri­ence through its life­time. It’s pre­sum­ably not as rig­or­ous as the one per­formed by Jaeger-LeCoul­tre - where Montblanc’s cur­rent head Jerome Lambert used to serve as CEO - which is a 1,000-hour test. Then again, they’re half­way there.
