Classic Masterpieces Tasting Montblanc Nicolas Kasch Single Button Chronograph

Montblanc’s Nicolas Kasch single-button chronograph is one of Montblanc’s most representative models. Its unique faceplate design, eccentric main dial and chronograph sub-dial layout are absolutely impressive. Unforgettable and recognizable.

   And this year, Montblanc launched the new Nicolas Kasch single-button chronograph, again paying tribute to the French watchmaker Nicholas Kasch who first invented the ink-drop chronograph in 1821.

   Compared with its predecessor, the new watch (model: 118537) draws inspiration from Minerva pocket watches. The newly designed round case diameter is 44.8 mm. The redesigned silver dial has a more harmonious layout and details. The controls are also more detailed, making the entire watch more elegant. The watch is equipped with Montblanc’s own MB R200 winding movement.

   The case is polished and rounded. At 8 o’clock, there is a one-button timing button. One-button operation starts, stops and returns to zero.

   Domed eccentric hour scale and titanium chronograph. The redesigned black Arabic numerals have a more slender font, and a precision rail-shaped minute scale circle surrounds the eccentric main dial. The classic blue willow-shaped hands complete the dial’s shape, and the second time zone time can be displayed by the hollow hands in the center of the off-center main dial. The date window is at 6 o’clock. The two chronograph dials use horizontally arranged discs, with the left rotating disc for 60 seconds and the right disc for 30 minutes. The fixed blue hands at both ends indicate the chronograph scales of the two chronograph dials.
   Through the sapphire crystal glass on the case back, the modern beauty of the self-winding single-button chronograph movement MB R200 is unobstructed, and the movement parts are decorated with exquisite hand-polished treatment. The vertical clutch device that connects the transmission mechanism with the column wheel structure can ensure the smooth running of the chronograph function and effectively avoid the minute jump of the chronograph second hand when the chronograph starts. The movement’s dual barrels provide a power reserve of up to 72 hours.

Summary: As one of Montblanc’s most representative models, many people immediately think of Nicholas Kays single-button chronograph when they mention Montblanc watches. This new watch’s appearance changes the details to make the watch more refined and elegant, which is very suitable for business people. This watch has also passed the ‘Montblanc Lab 500 Hour Quality Test’ certification. At present, the domestic public price has not been announced. The Swiss franc price is 7,450 Swiss francs.
