As the self-proclaimed “Fathers of Stylish Writing”, German manufacturer Montblanc have been making high end writing instruments.
Their watchmaking legacy began with the foundation of Montblanc Montre S.A. in Le Locle, the municipality in the Swiss Jura Mountains that is considered to be the birthplace of watchmaking. Most Montblanc pieces are designed, assembled and tested at their picturesque Art Nouveau villa workshop, located 1,000 metres above sea level. Fittingly, the beautiful premises was built in 1906, the same year Montblanc was originally founded.
Montblanc may be a relative newcomer in the luxury timepiece game, but the brand’s long-running philosophy of master craftsmanship took little time to translate to watchmaking.
