Accurate timekeeping has always been a watchmaking goal that major watch brands are constantly pursuing. As one of the most basic but crucial functions of timepieces, it has always been a ‘fight for the soldiers’. The accurate transmission of time to the wearer is also an expression of the sincerity of the watch brand. Montblanc upholds the concept of ‘precision timekeeping’ as its core watchmaking concept. At the Geneva Fine Watch Salon in 2017, Montblanc once again took traditional classic timepieces as inspiration for its design. The dial and blue alligator leather strap are very attractive.
