Pre-SIHH 2016 sneak peek: Montblanc's triple timepiece triumph
Montblanc has revealed the three new models for the upcoming SIHH 2016: The Heritage Chronométrie Collection Twincounter Date, the Heritage Chronométrie Chronograph Quantième Annuel and the ExoTourbillon Minute Chronograph VDG.
Previously known as the Heritage Chronométrie Date by Hand, the Chronométrie Collection Twincounter Date features a brand new date complication: a subdial date function instead of the conventional date aperture. To balance the look, a second sub-dial is placed at 9 o'clock, with a blue-steel hand contrasted with a red '60' numeral.
The Heritage Chronométrie Chronograph Quantième Annuel has for the first time a new combination with a chronograph associated with an annual calendar that only needs setting once a year at the end of February.
The ExoTourbillon Minute Chronograph VDG is made from high-tech materials such as titanium, carbon fibre and diamond-like carbon (DLC), making the timepieces extremely lightweight and robust.
All three timepieces will debut at Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie 2016 which runs from January 18-22, 2016.
