Montblanc Star Legacy Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph
Nicolas Rieussec is credited with inventing the first chronograph in 1821. Since 2008, Montblanc has presented various monopusher chronographs that reinterpret the original invention. This 2018 version has a 44.8 mm stainless steel case with a reworked silvery-white dial. The off-centered hour-circle and the chronograph’s titanium turning discs are domed, giving it a three-dimensional effect. Slim black Arabic numerals are surrounded by a railway minute track. The date is at 6 o’clock and enhanced with a display applied on the dial with blued screws. The dial is finished with a guilloché pattern. Two rotating vertically-aligned discs on the dial serve as 60-second and 30-minute counters that turn below a blued fixed double index. This design is inspired by Rieussec’s original inking chronograph. In addition, a second time zone is displayed by a skeletonized hand on the off-centered dial. The chronograph is powered by the Caliber MB R200 automatic chronograph movement.
