Gracious Elegance with Noble Horological Mechanisms To design a collection that bears the name of such an incomparable and unforgettable celebrity is both a challenge and a source of enduring pride for Montblanc's designers and jewellers, who were inspired by the grace and preferences of this European-American style icon to create a palette of new models that pay homage to the memory of Princesse Grace de Monaco. Montblanc Collection Princesse Grace de Monaco Haute Joaillerie Automatic The Fine Art of Jewellery in the Best Horological Tradition Traditional artisanal professions such as those practiced by watchmakers, casemakers, cadraniers, chainsmiths and jewellers have been closely interrelated for centuries. Creative collaboration among these metiers repeatedly results in unique artworks with an aesthetic that evokes every bit as much enthusiasm as the fascinating mechanical clockworks that control the motions of timepieces' hands. The newest examples are two one-of-a-kind specimens of haute horlogerie in the Montblanc Collection Princesse Grace de Monaco. Outstanding craftsmanly skills created the “Pétales de Rose Motif” in 18 K white gold with 810 diamonds weighing a total of circa 6.763 carats and the “Pétales Entrelacés Motif” in 18 carat red gold with 360 diamonds weighing a total of circa 8.1571 carats. Montblanc Collection Princesse Grace de Monaco “Pétales de Rose Motif” The exclusive and unique “Pétales de Rose Motif” (rose petals) is dedicated to the noble blossom which ranks among the most beautiful expressions of love in our climes and which was also the favourite flower of Princess Gracia Patricia. The shape of the rose petals determines the design of the refined wristband, where invisible joints connect individual petal contours to create floral loops that conjoin to form an exquisite linked bracelet. The entire ensemble is made from 18 karat white gold artistically set with 555 brilliant-cut diamonds. The play with delicate petal contours likewise adorns the dial, where the fire of 80 brilliant-cut diamonds scintillates across an expanse of white mother-of-pearl. The face is surrounded by 130 brilliant-cut diamonds that are meticulously set by hand along the flange around the dial's periphery. This masterpiece of the jeweller's art is surmounted by a bezel that proudly bears 44 baguette diamonds. A most exclusive diamond thrones upon the crown: this superlative gem is cut with 43 facets and embodies the emblem of the Montblanc brand. Connoisseurs who peer behind this opulent foreground of 18 karat white gold and 810 diamonds weighing a total of 6.763 carats will discover a mechanical SWISS MADE self-winding movement that functions entirely without a battery. Its mainspring is automatically wound by a rotor which is visible through a pane of sapphire crystal in the case's back. The rotor transforms each motion of the wearer's wrist into a paragon of Swiss precision timekeeping. If this wristwatch has been left unworn long enough for the movement to exhaust its reserve of power, its mainspring can be quickly and easily wound by manually turning the crown. A masterpiece of the jeweller's art, this wristwatch is an utterly unique piece of jewellery that has been crafted for eternity and will never be repeated.
