In honor of the classy and urbane ladies of today, Montblanc recently introduced its new all-women Bohème collection. Following the pounding success of the Bohème Perpetual Calendar and the Bohème Moongarden, this exclusive collection also boasts of the watchmaker’s in-house patented ExoTourbillon technology.
This pro-women assortment takes elegance to new heights with its intricacies of guilloché, gem-setting, miniature gold-work, and hand-painting, along with bold touches of sophistication that can be seen in its curved faceted horns, sculpted onion crowns, and bezels set with sparkling diamonds. Giving close attention to detail, the collection unveils unique Bohème elements in each of its leaf-shaped hands, floral Arabic numerals, minute scales with raised red gold-plated dots, and internal hour rings. Catering to women’s love for variety, these timepieces will come with interchangeable straps, ranging from black alligator to a colorful calfskin print in options of Cappuccino, Orange Apricot, Coquelicot, Bleu des îles, or Turquoise, that can be changed with a simple push of a button. The range offers four variants – Montblanc Bohème ExoTourbillon Slim, Montblanc Bohème ExoTourbillon Slim Jewellery, Montblanc Bohème ExoTourbillon Slim 110 Years Anniversary, and Montblanc Bohème Automatic Date. Upscaling the standard tourbillon construction, the ExoTourbillon is disconnected from the balance wheel (which has a diameter of 9.7 mm and 18 screws) with the weight of the cage being minimal, resulting in higher precision and improved isochronism. The barrel which is embedded inside the main plate with its 48-hour power reserve also lends technical precision to each timepiece. The ExoTourbillon automatic caliber MB M29.24 also comes with a brand new micro-rotor allowing a free flow of movement. However, for such complex supremacy, the whole construct stands only as less as 4.5 mm in height.
The collection also boasts of a quick stop-second mechanism that is enabled by a red arrow on the tourbillon cage. Constructed with a whip, which halts the large screw balance with its 18 screws and restarts it on demand, all the functions and operations are set via the crown at three o’clock. With deeply thought out technicalities, the collection also displays equally high standards of aesthetics with Côtes de Genève “en éventail” decoration on the bridges and micro-rotor, mirror polishing on the Tourbillon Bridge in the shape of a twirling stick, satin-finishing on the main plate, and a sunray finishing on the plate below the micro-rotor. While the Montblanc Bohème ExoTourbillon Slim dial is made of silvery-white mother-of-pearl with a refined guilloché pattern, the Montblanc Bohème ExoTourbillon Slim Jewellery dial has been paved with 144 Top Wesselton diamonds (0.531 carats). The Boheme ExoTourbillon Slim 110 Years Anniversary model comes with a blue lacquer snake motif with rubies mounted in the eyes and a multi-layer dial form that reflect on the timeless design of the brand. Lastly, the Boheme Automatic Date model comes with a 34mm stainless steel case with double sapphire crystals on each side and 72 pieces of (a total of 0.533 carats) Top-Wesselton diamonds on the bezel, a Caliber Ref. MB 24.17 and a changeable stainless steel bracelet or leather strap. Tested and certified by the Montblanc Laboratory Test 500, this collection is an epitome of elegance and a steal for all elegant ladies out there!
