Montblanc launches the Star World-Time GMT Automatic watch
August 22, 2012: Luxury brand Montblanc has launched the Star World-Time GMT Automatic watch, which is designed primarily for businesspeople who travel the world and want to keep a watchful eye on multiple time zones. This wristwatch puts two different time zones on its dial and at the same time, indicates the time in all the worlds 24 time zones, purely through mechanical means. All functions can be operated via the screwed crown in 3 positions.
Based on a special toothing system, this entirely new setting mechanism, by which both, the flange and the watch movement can be activated, has been submitted for patent protection. Not only can this device separately control all indicators via one and the same winding-stem, it also disconnects the movement from the wheels of the time-zone and world-time indicators whenever a time-zone correction is made. The movement continues to run accurately while the time zone is being reset. The watch has a 42-mm stainless steel case and is available at exclusive Montblanc boutiques and authorised dealers.
