Another of the splendid watchmakers join the brigade of generous donators for Only Watch 2013. Montblanc puts its best foot forward by giving away a unique timepiece – the Nicolas Rieussec Rising Hours for Monaco under the patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco. This is the fifth consecutive year that the brand is participating in the Only Watch event. Designed and developed especially for the auction, the new watch hails from Montblanc’s Nicolas Rieussec Rising Hours series with the same day and night indicator specialty, but stuns in an all-black avatar. It features a black dial with grain d’orge guilloché décor, a traditional decorative technique used in the art of watchmaking.
Encased in a 43 mm stainless steel, the case has been polished with a glossy Diamond-Like Carbon finish, ensuring long durability and resistance. Protecting the case on both sides is a dome in sapphire crystals that ensures water resistance up to 30 meters.
The case has been further complemented with a black alligator-skin strap with contrasting red-gold colored stitching. Making the watch exclusive, its rear bears the lettering – “Only Watch ’13 Unique Piece”.
