Mont­blanc Star Legacy Ni­co­las Rieussec Chrono­graph

Upscale Living Magazine - - Travel -

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.
