 The design of the chronograph inherits the unique style of the Montblanc Nicholas Kays chronograph series. The layout of the two chronograph dials and fixed hands can be seen at a glance: the V-shaped bridge at 6 o’clock fixes the jewel bearings of the two chronograph dials, as Grinning; Off-center day / night hour dial above shows the current time by hollowed-out minute hands and hour-dial dial, half-curved window on the left shows the day of the week, and the date on the right; the other spaces are decorated with classically beautiful machine-engraved wheat grain patterns ; The back is engraved with ‘ONLY WATCH ’13 UNIQUE PIECE’ to show its unique value.

Day and night display, new and interesting

 Throughout the ages, the hour display is not new: the hour number advances once every hour at the fixed mark position, and the minute hand rotates in the traditional way. Although this new work is similar to other Montblanc Nicholas Kay chronograph models, it is off-center hour dial layout, but its time-jumping technology is a revolutionary innovation: the hour hand is discarded, and there is an arc window at 12 o’clock to see Arabic numeral hours On the turntable, the number facing the triangle mark is the current hour.

 At first glance, this is very similar to the time-of-day watch mode that has appeared in the past, but on closer inspection, you will see that the hour number will change with the day and night time: the hour number at night is blue, the day is black, and the same hour number is obvious at day and night. Different, it’s easy for the owner to set the date, to ensure that the date numbers advance accurately at midnight (not at noon)

Montblanc new movement with patented day and night display technology

 This new time display mode relies on the patented technology of Montblanc’s new self-made MB R220 movement. There are two overlapping turntables with 12 hollowed out Arabic numerals on the bottom. Blue and black each halve. Blue represents night and black. Represents daytime, there are two color backgrounds, and the number changes color with day / night. The upper number advances hour by hour, and the lower turntable rotates at the specified interval and speed, showing the correct color area. The entire system is controlled by a cross-shaped part equipped with two cams, one of which is mounted on the drive lever of the day / night turntable, and the other cam is connected to the extension of the hour drive lever. The two cams have a special contour, which makes them slowly rotate between 9 am and 3 pm (and between 9 pm and 3 am), but during this period the day / night turntable is fixed. The cams were not engaged until 3 am and 3 pm, so that the day / night turn was accelerated, until the two teeth on each side were engaged, the day / night turn no longer accelerated, and synchronized with the digital turn, the latter The situation occurred from 4.30 am to 7.30 am (and from 4.30 pm to 7.30 pm). Then, the day / night disc is decelerated from 7:30 am to 9 am (and 7:30 pm to 9 pm) until the joints are completely separated, and the day / night disc stops rotating.

 The operation of this patented technology appears twice a day: at 6 am every day, the left half of the hollowed-out 6 character is still blue, but the right half has seen black, which means that the night is about to dawn; at 6 o’clock at dusk, the left half of the 6 character It is black but blue has been seen in the right half, which represents the sunset of the Xishan night.
In addition to the two discs, day / night / hour, there are four discs each performing their duties: the position at 9 o’clock is the day, the position at 3 o’clock is the date, and the remaining two are 60-second and 30-minute timers. According to the tradition, the timing program is controlled by a column wheel and a vertical clutch with very little loss. A single press of the timing button is set at 8 o’clock, in conjunction with the gesture of the watch owner pressing with the right thumb. It is worth noting that the teeth of the transmission wheel system have been refined to improve the efficiency of power transmission, and have both the advantages of reducing parts loss and reducing energy consumption. The MB R220 self-winding movement has excellent winding efficiency. The power reserve of the dual spring drum is about 72 hours, and the torque output remains stable for a long time. The swing frequency of the large balance wheel with 10 mm diameter screw is 28,800 times (4 Hz) per hour, inertia. It is 12 mgcm2 to ensure the accuracy and stability of travel time.

 This unique timepiece is contained in a special watch case and is accompanied by a 500-hour quality test certificate, which is a dream that collectors and watch fans aspire to.
