Montblanc Star Nicolas Rieussec Monopusher Chronograph Open Date Watch: Montblanc’s “Time Writer” Reveals New Dimension In 2009

The Star Nicolas Rieussec Monopusher Chronograph watch was Montblanc sensation at SIHH 2008. It amply demonstrated that the brand was prepared to enter the prestigious “Manufacture” realm, and aside from this was a superb example of how watchmaking history could be used to create an impressive luxury timepiece. One year later, the distinctive character of the Montblanc Star Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph gains a new dimension, courtesy of a tastefully executed skeleton dial that gives a glimpse into the in-house mechanism.

For those who may not be familiar with it, the Montblanc Star Nicolas Rieussec Monopusher Chronograph watch displays elapsed chronograph time via discs that turn beneath fixed hands; this is unlike the typical chronograph watch, in which small hands move over a stationary dial.  Montblanc took creative inspiration for the Star Nicolas from the concept of the chronograph as first invented in the 19th century – and named the watch in honor of its inventor, Nicolas Rieussec. Unlike Monsieur Rieussec’s original “time writer” however, you won’t find any ink in this watch!

Those seeking fine detail – an unspoken necessity on any timepiece in the luxury category – would certainly be delighted with the Montblanc Star Nicolas Rieussec Monopusher Chronograph watch in any form. However, the new Star Nicolas Rieussec Monopusher Chronograph Open Date model gives an impressive Montblanc timepiece even more visual appeal.
