Ever since Davide Cerrato took the helm at Montblanc’s watch department, it’s as if the turbo-booster was suddenly turned on. The watches, which were solid before, now have a clarity and a cohesion that makes them a strong option and a force to be reckoned with. Case in point, their 2019 heritage releases …
The Montblanc Heritage Monopusher Pulsograph
Montblanc’s Minerva chronographs have a well-earned reputation for being amongst the best in the business, and the one keeping this beauty running is no exception. And in this case the case and dial is more than a match for the movement. The salmon dial, in particular, is complex and subtle, with nice heritage touches like the hash marks on the minutes counter, which marked the increments of international telephone calls, back when that was something that mattered. $44,400
The Montblanc Heritage Automatic
If you don’t need the complexity or the sticker price of the chronograph, but (like me) can’t get enough of that dial, you’re in luck, as Montblanc offer it in a simple automatic version. The reasonable size and stylish solid caseback complete the picture. $3410
The Montblanc Heritage Perpetual Calendar
Taking a break from salmon dials, this Perpetual Calendar certainly lives up to its heritage nomenclature. Again, smart sizing and restrained (but far from boring) design make this a textbook example of how to knock heritage style out of the park in 2019. $23,600
