Montblanc 4810 TwinFly Chronograph 110 years Edition
Worldwide timekeeping and highly functional chronometry. Travelers across the Atlantic Ocean in the early 20th century would have found this timepiece’s two complications immensely useful: a 24-hour display with day & night indication for a second time zone and an in-house developed TwinFly chronograph. A small world map subdial at 12 o’clock shows the hometime, linked with the blued central hour hand. Also in central position are the red gold-plated hour and minute hands for the local time as well as the chronograph minute and seconds baton hands. A subdial at 6 o’clock shows the small seconds and carries a large date window. The TwinFly chronograph of the new Manufacture Caliber MB LL100.1 is driven by a column wheel. Its start and stop functions are controlled by a vertical disc clutch via a pusher at 2 o’clock; a pusher at 4 o’clock resets it. The lower pusher also activates the eponymous fly-back function, which stops, resets and instantly restarts the elapsed minutes and seconds at a single touch. For better readability, the chronograph indication has two separate scales. The exterior seconds scale bears small Super-LumiNova dots every five seconds, while the interior minutes scale has 10-minute markings in red. Red gold-plated Roman numerals and indexes on the silvery-white dial with an exploding star pattern are the hallmark of the Montblanc 4810 collection. In a 43 mm stainless steel case with straight horns, this timepiece is a sophisticated travel companion.
