Pre-SIHH 2014: Montblanc Star Twin Moonphase Watch
By Jovan Krstevski
It is just one week left before Montblanc Star Twin Moonphase will be unveiled to the public and the international press in Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) Geneva.
The watch is characterized by a combination of the original moon phase`s pointer. It allows simultaneously indicating in the North and southern hemispheres of the globe. The model has a round polished case with a diameter of 42 mm, made of stainless steel. Water-resistant – 30 meters. The crown is located at the 3 o`clock position, decorated with a pearl Star of David – the Montblanc`s logo.
The silver guilloche dial, equipped with black Arabic numerals and blued hands, is protected by a sapphire crystal. Between 1 and 2 o`clock positions there is a round analog date display, and at the 6 o`clock position – the moon phase`s pointer. The sapphire crystal is also mounted on the case back, through which is possible to observe the work of the automatic movement Montblanc MB 4810/913, with functions of the hours, minutes, seconds, date and moon phases. The novelty comes on a black alligator strap with a stainless steel buckle.
