Montblanc Star Legacy Exo Tourbillon Skeleton LE8

Montblanc is introducing an impressively designed new watch, of which only eight pieces are available – the Montblanc Star Legacy Exo Tourbillon Skeleton LE8. The watch features a fully-skeletonized, three-dimensional movement. The watch comes on a brown Sfumato alligator leather strap from the Pelletteria atelier in Florence.

The polished case of the Montblanc Star Legacy Exo Tourbillon Skeleton LE8 is 18-carat pink-gold. It has a diameter of 44.8 mm, while it measures 15.1 in height. Likewise, the crown is also 18-carat rose gold, and features the Montblanc emblem in mother-of-pearl.

However, the front is the real talking point of the timepiece. Firstly, there’s the off-centre, 18-carat gold domed dial with ivory Grand Feu enamel. It lies at 12 o’clock and displays hour and minutes with the help of gold-leaf hands. By contrast, the small seconds at 6 o’clock are more subtle. Secondly, the open-worked, rhodium-plated German-silver dial plate showcases stretched stripes on both sides, as well as hand-chamfered edges. Meanwhile, the patented Exo Tourbillon (with one revolution per minute to indicate the seconds) has one arm-bridge at 6 o’clock. Additionally, the Tourbillon is housed in a mirror-polished version of the brand’s Exo Tourbillon cage.

Then, there’s the movement itself: the Montblanc Manufacture open-worked Calibre MB M18.69. The movement consists of 19 jewels and 188 components. Moreover, it provides the Montblanc Star Legacy Exo Tourbillon Skeleton LE8 with a 50-hour power reserve, and beats at a frequency of 2.5 Hz. As mentioned, the mechanical movement with manual winding integrates the one-minute Suspended Exo-Tourbillon. It appears to be floating due to the balance wheel’s 4.15 mm elevation above the dial.

Finally, the Montblanc Star Legacy Exo Tourbillon Skeleton LE8 comes on a brown leather alligator strap and is water-resistant to 30 m. Its price is 138,000 euros.
