Since the establishment of the Gregorian calendar in 1582, the length of the month has changed cyclically, which makes the wearer of the watch need to set the date and week according to the number of days in each month. For this reason, Montblanc watchmakers reduce the reading time through the calendar watch, so that the wearer only needs to manually set the date once on the morning of March 1 of the year. At other times, as long as the watch is fully wound and functioning properly, this complex device can automatically ensure that all calendar-related functions have the required settings and accurately display calendar information.
Efficient Almanac Complex
Montblanc Heritage Precision Chronograph Annual Calendar Dagam Diamond Limited Edition calendar display information such as the week at 9 o’clock, the date at 3 o’clock and the month at 12 o’clock are all controlled by the almanac complex function. This structure automatically controls the number of days to be displayed according to the length of the current month (such as 30 or 31 days), but for February with a length of 28 or 29 days, you need to set it manually according to the year. Montblanc also chose to incorporate the moon phase display function in this model, which is separated from the setting of the annual calendar function through independent gear train control.
Self-developed moon phase display
The unique moon phase display function is embedded in the star pattern of the southern hemisphere, which is unique. Southern Cross is easily identifiable, especially the red star named γ in this eye-catching constellation. If you look closely, we will also see the other three stars α, β and δ in the cross, as well as other stars that Portuguese seafarers might see in 1497. In order to show the change of the moon phase, the beautiful blue paint constellation is equipped with a golden rotating dial window, and the moon phase under the night sky is displayed below, which perfectly reproduces the dazzling beauty of the starry sky of the year.
Delicate and elegant case
Montblanc Heritage Chronograph Annual Calendar Da Gama Diamond Edition features a silver-white dial with a beautifully decorated sun-pattern pattern and appliqué scales. It is set in an 18K rose gold case with a diameter of only 9.5 mm and a diameter of 40 mm. It is set with 72 brilliant models. The bezel lines of the cut diamond are classic and smooth. Slightly turning the wrist, the watch refracts thousands of rays of light, like a bright constellation shining in the night sky, especially like the little star light of the Southern Cross in the Milky Way. Montblanc Heritage Chronograph Annual Calendar Da Gama Diamond Edition is related to the stars, and naturally engraved the ship that was flying by Vasco Da Gama with the help of the Southern Cross star-San Gabriel. In addition, the sapphire crystal window on the back of this new series is also engraved with the flagship’s pattern and the signature of the fearless explorer. Limited to 90 pieces, this watch symbolizes the southernmost point of the 90 ° Southern Cross.
