Lov e for Malaysia

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Style - – Bervin Cheong

laysia’s 60th year of ence, Mont­blanc has a very spe­cial time­pays ho­mage to the vi­brant cul­tural tapes­ritage.

0 Ex­oTour­bil­lon Slim 0 Edi­tion is coded with d emo­tion. It is limited xclu­sive num­bered to rep­re­sent each de­chows

off a minia­ture map of Malaysia. This is said to be unique, as each il­lus­tra­tion is painstak­ingly hand-painted and dif­fers very slightly from one watch to an­other. A closer look re­veals a num­ber of sub­tle de­sign de­tails, in­clud­ing a thin bezel with satin fin­ish­ing on the bor­der and horns that, while straight from above, are slightly curved on the un­der­side.

The 42mm watch also fea­tures the Cal­i­bre MB 29.24 – pow­ered for the very first time by a mi­cro-ro­tor dec­o­rated with a “cotes de gen­eve en even­tail” pat­tern that re­veals an undis­turbed view on the back.

Mont­blanc is also re­vis­it­ing Malaysia’s her­itage through an as­sort­ment of fine sta­tionery.

On the in­side cover of each notebook is an artis­tic trib­ute to highly recog­nis­able icons of Malaysia.

These range from the Sul­tan Abdul Sa­mad build­ing, Petronas Twin Tow­ers and Kuala Lumpur Tower, to a ju­bi­lant Tunku Abdul Rahman – Malaysia’s first prime min­is­ter and found­ing fa­ther – pro­claim­ing Malaysia’s in­de­pen­dence.

Mont­blanc’s Merdeka note­books are avail­able in red, blue and yel­low in limited quan­ti­ties of 248 per colour. This fig­ure is de­rived from mul­ti­ply­ing the num­bers 31 (date of Malaysia’s in­de­pen­dence) and eight (month of Au­gust).

The spe­cial note­books come in colours of the Malaysian flag, as well as with il­lus­tra­tions of the coun­try’s her­itage. — Pho­tos: Mont­blanc
