MontBlanc has introduced three new Heritage Chronométrie models: two of them are its patented EXO Tourbillon Slim, and the third is Perpetual Calendar Sapphire Slim 118513. In addition to retaining all of necessary design requirements, MontBlanc adds aesthetic elements and pure lines to the three new models through distinctive designs for dials. They reflect the combination of technical nature and stylish elegance. Watch cases are polished to a bright mirror finish, and lugs become more slender. These designs are used to highlight the patented EXO tourbillon and perpetual calendar. To achieve better effect, Every of them goes with a pair of new crocodile-skin bracelet in ink blue by MontBlanc Craftswork located in Florence. What’s more, every piece has been tested for 500 hours by MontBlanc laboratory in order to assure high performance and accuracy.

The invention makes framework become smaller, so the patented tourbillon saves more power reserve. On the other hand, the bridge won’t be influenced by inertia of frame so that accuracy is improved well.
