The Montblanc sport chronograph automatic proves that Montblanc can also design sporty wristwatches. Its 44-mm design case resists water pressures down to 200 meters. As is de rigueur for a proper divers’ watch, its textured bezel is rotatable in only one direction: if the bezel should be inadvertently shifted from its intended setting, the remaining dive time shown will always be shorter (and never life-threateningly longer) than planned. The massive, stainless-steel case with bold protectors beside the crown is coated with an ultra hard layer of diamond-like carbon. To improve the legibility of the date in its window, Montblanc has integrated a magnifying lens in the sapphire crystal, which is nonreflective on both its surfaces. Last but not least, there’s the mechanical inner life: thanks to its balance frequency of four hertz, this chronograph can stop at intervals to the nearest 1/8 second. Counters capture time intervals up to 12 hours in duration. This is the same watch that was featured on page 78 of Watchtime magazine in the Montblanc Special Edition.
