Montblanc 113779 description
The Montblanc Heritage Chronométrie Dual Time Vasco da Gama pays tribute to the great explorer with its outstanding design. This highly functional timepiece that bears a complication developed in-house by Montblanc indicates both local time and home time in an intuitive and easy to use way. The time at the home destination is displayed by a 12-hour home-time hand in blue and a minutes hand in gold. A 24-hour subdial depicting the night sky as Vasco da Gama saw it during his voyage from Portugal to India at 12 o’clock indicates whether it is night or day at home. When traveling, the local time – displayed by the golden hours hand - can be easily adjusted in one-hour jumps and in both directions with the crown in second position. The central minutes and the small seconds at 6 o’clock, illustrating a slightly cambered world map, continue to run independently. The local time is linked with the date – a trusted companion not just for crossing the International Date Line.
