Before we get all too excited about Hugh Jackman for Montblanc, also rejoice at the 2 new novelty timepieces that debuted at SIHH2014.

1) Montblanc Star Twin Moonphase
Combining refined round cases, impeccable quality and traditional decorative techniques, the timepiece is staged by a high-quality automatic movement with a pointer date, and is a special interpretation of a moon-phase display that shows the changing faces of our Earth’s satellite both as they appear to observers in the Northern Hemisphere and as they look from the perspective of those in the Southern Hemisphere.

2) The New Montblanc TimeWalker Extreme Chronograph DLC

In celebrating the 10th anniversary of the TimeWalker collection, Montblanc  unveiled the new Montblanc TimeWalker Extreme Chronograph DLC. This timepiece features a diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating on its stainless steel case, which gives the case’s surface an element of supreme toughness. The black of the new TimeWalker chronograph´s case continues on the large planar dial, which expresses the artistry of the cadraniers, as dial-makers are known in specialized horological language. Furthermore, the timepiece is accentuated by a set of anthracite-grey ruthenium-coloured hands that clearly contrast with the midnight-black background. Complementing the watch is a sporty yet elegant strap, with an inlay made of black “Vulcarboné” cautchouc, giving the wristband extreme strength and flexibility.

This one I am extremely drawn to... masculine and tough... I love the sleek all-black look!
