The Montblanc Star Legacy Automatic Date is limited to 1786 pieces and comes in a 39mm pebble-shaped stainless steel case with rose gold-coated hands, Arabic numerals, and an eye-catching blue glacier pattern dial. The dial is decorated with a layered ice design that was inspired by the Mer de Glace, the main glacier of the Mont-Blanc Mountain. The centre of the dial is created using a special stamp that reproduces this glacier texture and celebrates the “blue hour” – “l’heure bleue”, during which a shade of intense blue falls upon the glacier at dusk when the moon rises and the stars begin to shine. It was at this time of day that Jacques Balmat became the first person to reach the summit of the Mont Blanc – at 18h23 on August 7th in, 1786. The functions include hours, minutes, central seconds with a Montblanc emblem on the counterweight, and a date that are powered by the MB 24.17 automatic movement that can be admired through a sapphire crystal case back. The timepiece is paired with a calf leather strap with an alligator print.
