The Montblanc brand started out as a writing instrument and gradually developed into a big brand across multiple product lines. In 1997, Montblanc began to enter the watchmaking industry and successively launched a number of beautifully shaped series. In 2004, Montblanc acquired the Minerva watchmaking factory, which greatly enhanced the strength of advanced watchmaking. This watch introduced today comes from the sports series, its model is 08469.
From the appearance, Montblanc’s 08469 watch itself is very sporty. It seems that it dares to go with you anywhere, either on the top of a mountain, or a volcano, or a cave, or a forest.
Its appearance is somewhat Rolex-like, but it is more rounded. The 41.5 mm diameter is not too large, but it is not small. The stainless steel material makes the case and bracelet.
There are three places in this watch that are more flavorful. One is the bezel. The edge of the bezel has a very obvious texture, but it does not mean that it can be rotated. In addition, the bezel shows 24 hours. Second time zone time scales. These scales are convex and polished to have a mirror effect, while the surface of the bezel is matte. The entire bezel is very technological and controllable. The scale on the bezel is also very artistic, inheriting the brand’s respect for culture and art.
The second is the dial. The scale on the dial uses a triangular design, and the pointer is a wide-fat triangular arrow pointer, especially the second hand is more interesting. The tail of the second hand is designed with the brand’s hollow white hexagonal shape. Although this design Many brands do, but each has its own flavor. The waterdrop-shaped calendar lens on the table glass is round, which is more humorous and funny than the oval shape of Rolex.
The third is the crown and crown shoulders. Unlike other brands’ crown shoulders, its shoulders and lugs look like an unbreakable ‘mountain’, giving a very solid and thick feeling.
It’s a pity that there is no back design, so there is no way to appreciate the part of its movement.
The overall appearance may be better described with ‘steadiness’ and ‘art’.
As the Montblanc 08469 watch of the sports series, it has some interesting functions.
The first is the very conspicuous GMT function, that is, the dual time zone function. The local time is indicated by the red arrow pointer, and the ground reference time is indicated by the central large hour and minute hands, so it is easy to distinguish. The dual time zone function can indicate the time in two time zones. Because the time difference between time zones is in hours, the minute hand does not need to be adjusted when setting the time in the second time zone (of course, it cannot be adjusted). The dual time zone function meets the needs of those business people or travellers who often go to different time zones for time control. In their home country, it can also adjust the 24-hour time to display the current time. Therefore, the user group it faces is actually limited, after all, not everyone has the need to understand the time in different time zones.
The second is the calendar function. Its calendar is a window calendar, and the calendar can be viewed more clearly through the magnifying glass on the table mirror. However, like the ordinary calendar, you need to manually adjust the date at the beginning of the month with 31 days.
Finally, it also has a very powerful feature, that is, water resistance. As a dual time zone watch, it has a water resistance of 200 meters, which is enough to match a lot of other brands’ dual time zone models. 200 meters of water resistance requires a more rigorous design and a completely sealed waterproof system.
Although the Montblanc 08469 watch is a sports watch, it does not have the professional functions required for sports. It interprets sports style.憨 Thick appearance design, extremely corrosion-resistant stainless steel case, and fluorescent hands and scales are all examples of this watch’s sports style. As a dual time zone watch, it has a very clear second Time zone time indication. Of course, behind these practical functions is a really powerful inner core—Cal. 4810/405 automatic winding mechanical movement as a support.
Montblanc 08649 watch is a product under the brand, adhering to the brand’s pursuit of boutique, art, emotion, and culture, and it has a dual time zone function, which is called ‘time zone traveler’ is still very suitable.
