To be able to create versatile designs, showcases how forward thinking a maison, or an individual craftsman, can be. It speaks of a mind that is not content with what it has created only for the here and now, but rather have itself be available for implementation into other endeavors, in another time.
For Montblanc, one object that is continuously proving itself to bear this quality this year, is its ExoTourbillon — which is an impressive mechanism in on its own because it’s not every day that you see a maison spend the effort to create its own unique version of the hallowed tourbillon.
But what is perhaps even more impressive is the dexterity that Montblanc has shown with their tourbillon, having transcended its expected appearance in more classical watches into the extremely avant-garde with the TimeWalker ExoTourbillon Minute Chronograph, which was unveiled just ahead of SIHH 2016.
And now Montblanc is bringing the ExoTourbillon into one of their more decidedly feminine collections, the Bohème.
