Today is the last day of Chinese New Year and the festive season (in Asia, at the very least, following Christmas and New Years in consecutive months) ends and a normal work year will commence.

What better way to get back in gear than to treat yourself to a new timepiece. This time, just launched during January at SIHH 2015... Montblanc delivers another noteworthy timepiece for horology fans and savvy gentlemen. Check out their latest Montblanc Heritage Chronométrie Dual Time.

This new addition to the Montblanc brand is equipped with a complication developed in-house by Montblanc, enabling it to display a second zone time (local time) simultaneously along with the time in the wearer’s home time zone. This feat is achieved with the aid of a second hour-hand that can be reset in hourly increments without affecting the position of the first hour-hand. The date display also corresponds to this local time hand. If the user does not need to display the second zone time, the second hour-hand can be set so that it completely covers its counterpart for the time in the home zone. The 24-hour display at “12 o’clock” shows the home time with a day and night indication.

I love the clean and uncluttered styling of the watch face. The bezel has a flat surface that’s alternately polished and satin-finished. The horns are rounded. Built from three parts, the bright silvery white dial is adorned with a sunburst pattern and bears eleven facetted applied indexes and a prominent numeral “12”. If slimness of a watch is one of your discerning requirements, then the 41-mm-diameter case in stainless steel is crafted at an elegantly slim 9.9 mm. How amazing to pack all these horological innovations within this slim depth.

The leather wristband is crafted at the Montblanc Pelletteria, the Maison’s own leather manufacture in Florence, Italy. The new and uncommonly flat double folding clasp secures the strap handsomely.

Wear it and you are all set for even the grandest of occassions... such as what Mark Ruffalo did when he wore one to the recent 87th Academy Awards. Befitting a talented Hollywood actor nominated for his role in the movie ‘Foxcatcher, so this timepiece is definitely one to own and cherish.
