Montblanc Star Legacy Cronograph Day date

The Montblanc Star Legacy product line is inspired by Minerva pocket watches from the 19th century and the beginning of 20th century. The nowadays timepieces include round polished pebble-shaped cases, like those found on antique pocket watches; onion-shaped crowns with the recognisable Montblanc emblem; refined dials with the iconic exploding star guilloché pattern; and Sfumato straps coming from the Pelletteria in Florence, Italy.

In 2020, Montblanc is introducing a new 43 mm size to the Star Legacy product line with the presentation of two new men’s pieces, the Star Legacy Automatic Date and the Star Legacy Chronograph Day&Date.
Montblanc Star Legacy Automatic Date 43 mm
The new Montblanc Star Legacy Automatic Date comes in a 43mm stainless steel case with a domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating and a sapphire crystal case back. There are two dial colours, one in ivory with a silvery-white flange and featuring 18 K rose gold-coated Roman numerals, indexes and hands, and the other in anthracite with black rhodium coated Roman numerals, indexes and hands. Both are enhanced with luminescent material SuperLuminova for a better readability at night. The timepieces are powered by the MB 24.17 automatic movement that has a date at three o’clock and a 38-hour power reserve. The timepieces are water resistant to 50 meters and come fitted with a brown or grey Sfumato strap and are available on a stainless steel 3 links bracelet that has been partly polished and partly satin-finished.
Star Legacy, one of Montblanc’s classical watch collections, which draws its inspiration from pocket watch lines, is enhanced this year with a new reference, the Chrono Day & Date. Like all the timepieces from the range, its 43 mm-diameter case adorns a rounded, polished pebble shape. The brand proposes two versions of dial. The first features an ivory hue and boasts a flange and silvery-white counters. The Roman numerals and indexes displayed are hovered over by rose-gold-coated hands. Blued hands make reading short-cycle time, measured by the chronograph, incredibly easy. The second boasts an anthracite face with black rhodium-plated, Super-LumiNova-coated Roman numerals, indexes and hands for perfect readability in the dark.
All the time data is powered by the energy supplied by the MB25.07 caliber. This self-winding movement offers the timepiece a power reserve of some 48 hours. Elapsed time is displayed via a central direct-drive, a 30-minute totalizer and a 12-hour counter respectively set at 12 and 6 o’clock. The mechanism ticks over the day and date in a double aperture nestling at 3 o’clock.
The Star Legacy Chrono Day & Date is worn on a brown or grey Sfumato alligator strap, depending on the version chosen. These timepieces may also be coupled with a steel bracelet. In this case, the steel boasts alternating satin-brushed and polished finishes.

Montblanc Star Legacy Chronograph Day&Date 43 mm
The new Montblanc Star Legacy Chronograph Day&Date is housed in a 43mm stainless steel case with a domed sapphire crystal on the front and a sapphire crystal on the back, allowing the wearer the possibility to admire the MB25.07 automatic chronograph movement beneath.
The MB25.07 chronograph movement has a 48-hour power reserve and indicates the elapsed seconds via a central chronograph seconds hand, the elapsed minutes in a 30-minute counter, and the elapsed hours in a 12-hour counter. The day and date displays can be found in apertures at three o’clock.

There are two dial colours, one in ivory with a silvery-white flange and counters that features 18 K rose gold-coated Roman numerals, indexes and hands for the time functions and blued hands for the chronograph readings, and another that comes in anthracite with black rhodium coated Roman numerals, indexes and hands enhanced with luminescent material SuperLuminova for a better readability at night. The timepieces are water resistant to 50 meters and come fitted with a brown or grey Sfumato strap and are available on a stainless steel 3 links bracelet that has been partly polished and partly satin-finished.
