Climbing Montblanc, the Mountain of Luxury Style

Montblanc Luxury Watches for Men

Mont Blanc is the highest mountain in the Alps. It stands at about 15,775 feet above sea level, and is one of the most prominent mountains on the entire continent of Europe. To reach the summit, it typically takes 2 days of hard work and dedication. And that’s if you reach it at all. 

Montblanc, on the other hand, is a German luxury goods maker. Founded in 1904, they’re slightly less older than the mountain Mont Blanc, but they have a lot of other things in common. 

Like the mountain, Montblanc is a prominent European feature. They’ve also reached incredible heights when it comes to pure, undiluted luxury. It’s a summit of quality and style that took a lot longer than 2 days to reach. 

Of all their bags, jewelry, and other luxury goods, Montblanc is probably best known for their pens. Now, we don’t know what you think of when you think of a pen, but we can assure you that it’s not at all like what these folks are selling. 

Montblanc pens generally sell for about $500-$2000, depending on the configuration. They’ve got ball pens, fountain pens, all kinds of pens of all different sizes. These are pens that people use to sign billion dollar deals on yachts. They’re the kind of pens that get passed down as heirlooms from generation to generation. 

So imagine the excitement that rippled throughout the world of luxury watches when the company announced in 1997 that they were starting a line of watches. 

At first, Montblanc’s watches were primarily focused on a black and gold aesthetic to mirror the look of their Meisterstuck fountain pen. However, after dipping their toes into watchmaking, they quickly launched other more traditional lines. 

Today, they’re one of the top names in luxury watches, producing masterpieces one after the other. Their watches carry exactly the kind of look and feel that you’d think after learning about their luxury pens. They’re stylish, classy, and each carries about itself the feeling of a high-powered executive making important decisions over an incredibly expensive lunch in their office. 

Now, without further ado, let’s take a look at some stunning Montblanc watches that we have here in stock and ready to ship. 

The Montblanc Timewalker Chronograph Automatic Silver Dial

We wanted to start off with a sports watch to really drive home the point about the classy look and feel of Montblanc watches. 

Sure, this is a chronograph. It’s an exceptionally well made chronograph, actually. Meticulously crafted and powered by the mighty Montblanc Calibre MB 25.07 engine, a whirring wunderkind of modern automatic movements. The crown is even textured almost like a tire, offering a usability for quick action even in the, uh, sweatiest of circumstances. You could bring this to the track and it would do a spectacular job for all of your timekeeping needs. 

And yet… there’s something unmistakably gentlemanly about the watch. Despite all of its sporty trappings, you still get a feeling of refinement and power. It’s like a Rolls-Royce in watch form. 

This is driven home by the strap. Often these sports-focused chronographs will feature a holed rubber strap. Montblanc takes this concept and has fun with it. The strap bears a resemblance to holed rubber, but is instead a sort of vented high quality leather. It’s the best of both worlds.

The Montblanc Tradition Manual Winding White Dial

A lot of the magic of luxury design comes from the way a true master can pull out the essence of the item they’re making and craft it into the purest form of that thing.

For instance, take this Tradition watch. It is the essence of “watch.” There are no complications or extra functions here. There isn’t a rotating bezel or a date window to blemish the purity of its watch-ness. This is the idea of a watch that’s been shaped into a flawless object of beauty. This is The Watch. 

The white dial is pure as a drift of snow, and the only intruders upon its unbroken landscape are rose gold toned hour and minute hands. On the perimeter, which is distinguished by the faint ghost of a separating texture, we find the classic roman numeral hour markers. 

In a move that speaks to the powerful commitment Montblanc has made to bringing the fundamental ideal of a watch into physical form, this isn’t even an automatic watch. Indeed, this is luxury that must be manually wound, strengthening the bond between art and observer through interaction. 

All that aside, this is a luxury watch that looks great and feels great to wear in just about any situation.

The Montblanc Star Legacy Automatic Grey Dial

The Star Legacy line is Montblanc’s effort to combine traditional watchmaking with modern technology. It’s essentially classic watch aesthetics and techniques, but made with modern materials and technology. We think they’ve succeeded in a spectacular fashion. 

The most magical part of this watch is found on the dial in the form of a star shaped aberration just above 6 o’clock from which radiates a textured ripple that fills the entirety of the inner perimeter. The grey coloring is slightly reflective, which makes for an interesting visual effect. 

As far as bells and whistles go, there’s a date window and that’s it. This is an elegant watch that rests on its own beautiful design to draw the eye.

The Montblanc Star Classique Automatic

And then we have this Star Classique, which embarks on a similar mission with the Star Legacy, but with a greater focus on traditional design and luxury. 

The silver dial is a muted negative space, allowing the details to shine even brighter. The second hand has been moved to a sub dial embedded in a faint star symbol, adding a bit of intrigue to the dial’s presentation. The markers, the hands, and the bezel all gleam flawlessly in 18kt rose gold, adding just enough glamour to inspire awe while still retaining a refined presence. 

This is a watch that evokes the feeling of sitting at a rich mahogany desk with a Hemingway book opened in front of you.

The Montblanc Heritage Spirit Automatic Silver Dial

Montblanc’s Heritage line is paying reverence to the legendary Minerva watches of the 1940s and 50s. 

This one in particular, the Heritage Spirit, stands out to us because of the entirely silver toned theme. It’s bright, but not obnoxiously so. The luxury is found upon closer examination of the flawless detailing across the dial and the case. 

The ice blue second hand is the only splash of color, and that makes it all the more eye catching. The sleek, polished stainless steel case hides a powerful Montblanc automatic movement.
