Villeret Tourbillon Cylindrique Geosphères Vasco da Gama

Montblanc 2015

ref. 111675
Men's

Driven by the same pioneering spirit that guided Vasco da Gama on his historical expedition, the watchmakers at Montblanc's manufacture in Villeret have imagined the Tourbillon Cylindrique Geosphères: an unprecedented combination of a cylindrical tourbillon and a triple time zone indication, with local time shown in the centre, home time on a twelve-hour compass rose and, in a supremely original innovation, world time depicted on two globes representing the northern and southern hemispheres. These globes are motionless; instead, two discs with 24 time zones simultaneously rotate, one clockwise and the other anticlockwise. Manufactured as a limited edition of 18.
