Bohème Manufacture Perpetual Calendar

Montblanc’s key feminine product line Bohème has launched its 2019 latest watch collections — two new Manufacture Perpetual Calendars, a new Full Calendar and four new Day/Night models.

The Bohème timepieces feature polished cases with slightly curved and faceted horns, sculpted onion crowns and bezels set with sparkling diamonds. 

The dials are crafted with traditional decorative techniques, such as guilloché and gem-setting, and include leaf-shaped hands, floral Arabic numerals, minute scales with raised dots and internal hour rings, all enhancing the refinement of each model.

The moon phase is a recurrent feature in the Bohème product line, displaying the portion of the moon that is lit by the sun and that can be viewed from Earth.

“The new female watch creations are a tribute to the modern and independent woman's self-confidence and self-expression, who is true to herself, her passions and her dreams,” said Montblanc CEO Nicolas Baretzki at the new watch collections launch ceremony.

The new Bohème Manufacture Perpetual Calendar features an in-house perpetual calendar, the calibre MB 29.22, which indicates the hours, minutes, day, date, month, moon phase and leap year in an extremely legible way thanks to its large counters at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock.

The movement took three years to develop and is composed solely of wheels, in contrast to most perpetual calendars that use levers. This enables the user to adjust the watch via the crown in both directions, making it far simpler to set.

The Bohème Full Calendar comes in a 36mm steel case and features a full calendar complication in a pure and elegant aesthetic. 

The indications include the month in an aperture at 12 o’clock, the date around the outside of the dial and a moon phase at 6 o’clock. The sophisticated dial is highly legible due to a precise minute track with red gold-colored dots for the minutes as well as for the date. The timepiece is equipped with a brand-new blue grené calf strap.

Two new Bohème Day/Night models are available in a 30mm case size, and two additional models come in a 34mm size. 

The day/night indicator allows the wearer to know whether it is day or night just by glancing at the dial. The day is indicated by a light blue sky and golden sun, while the night is represented by a smiling golden moon in a dark blue sky adorned with stars.
