Montblanc: Bohème ExoTourbillon Slim19 September 2016
Even Montblanc is offering high meccanical watchmaking to its feminine audience. The brand enhanced its Bohème Collection with four new timepieces, introducing for the first time the Maison’s exclusive in-house patented ExoTourbillon into its women’s collection. The Bohème ExoTourbillon Slim epitomizes the Bohème Spirit, combining sophistication and audaciousness. The one-minute ExoTourbillon took over three years of research & development to produce and comes with a quick stop-second mechanism and a micro-rotor that were both created entirely in-house.
The Bohème ExoTourbillon Slim dial is made of a silvery-white mother-of-pearl with a refined guilloché pattern. For the Bohème ExoTourbillon Slim Jewellery model, the centre of the dial has been paved with 144 Top Wesselton diamonds. Both models feature 58 Top Wesselton diamonds set into the bezel and come in a new 38 mm red gold case size. Moreover, the Bohème ExoTourbillon Slim Jewellery will come with Montblanc’s interchangeable strap mechanism and a multitude of colourful calf straps to let woman the choice between Cappuccino, Orange Apricot, Coquelicot, Bleu des îles or Turquoise.
Celebrating the brand’s 110th anniversary, the Montblanc Bohème ExoTourbillon Slim 110 Years Anniversary recalls the design theme of the Maison’s first fountain pen series – the historic Rouge et Noir line. This iconic writing instrument, with its serpent clip, was the inspiration behind the dial of this model, where a painted blue lacquered serpent, with diamonds for its scales and rubies for its eyes, coils around the dial and the timepiece’s ExoTourbillon at six o’clock. The Montblanc Bohème ExoTourbillon Slim 110 Years Anniversary comes in a new 38 mm red gold case with 58 diamonds on the bezel, a blue alligator leather strap, as well as a crown set with the patented Montblanc diamond.
The four new pieces, including the Bohème Automatic Date were unveiled with an event in Beijing, attended by Chinese model and actress Zhang Zilin, Xue Xiaolu, the renowned Chinese film director and screenwriter and Singaporean actress turned fashion blogger Jeanette Aw, three outstanding women who embody the elegance and spirit of today’s Bohème Lady.
