Montblanc: Collection Villeret 1858 - Exo Tourbillon Rattrapante
The highest art of watchmaking: The Innovative Tourbillon with Additive Stopping
With the Exo Tourbillon Rattrapante from the Collection Villeret 1858, Montblanc presents a new timepiece which combines a split-second Chronograph and Montblanc's patented Exo Tourbillon, which has a large balance that oscillates outside the tourbillon's rotating cage. The three-dimensional regulator dial is made of gold, decorated with grand feu enamel elements crafted in accord with the tradition of ultrafine watchmaking, and includes a display for a second time zone with a day/night indicator.
The Monblanc Manufacture is specialized in grand complications. The so-called rattrapante chronographs can measure intermediate times without interrupting the ongoing measurement of a longer elapsing interval. These stopwatches from the manufacture in Villeret were used successfully at the Winter Olympics in 1936.
