Why you’ll love the Montblanc Bohème ExoTourbillon Jewellery Motif Serpent Limited Edition 18
The Bohemian lady appreciates the finer things in life. Her preferences lean towards bringing out her free-spirited and confident nature, with an aesthetic that's feminine and sophisticated. So if you proudly identify with all of the above, your watch of choice ought to be none other than Montblanc's Bohème ExoTourbillon, decked out in the jewellery version fronted by a scintillating serpent — no relation to Taylor Swift and LWYMMD, the timing is entirely coincidental.
First launched three years ago, the Bohème ExoTourbillon is now re-interpreted in a limited edition design hued in shades of royal purple, revealing an even more distinctive expression of its innate elegance combined with the most cutting-edge of watchmaking complications. Even if your spirit animal isn't of the serpentine variety, here's why this feminine Montblanc icon is one to love:
TECH AND SPECS
Your choice of watchcase comes in 18K red or white gold, and is studded all along the bezel with brilliant-cut diamonds. Enclosed beneath this luxe frame is the patented Montblanc ExoTourbillon automatic calibre MB M29.24 that ranks over standard tourbillons with its practically weightless construct — credit to a disconnect from the balance wheel and its minimal cage. The end result is improved precision and enhanced isochronism. The ExoTourbillon features a practical quick stop-second mechanism, easily set via the crown. This high-functioning complication measures only a mere 9.7mm in height, which brings us to...
The 38mm-sized diametre meant for even the smallest of wrists. Together with its already slender side profile, the new Bohème wears like a delicate bracelet and is fittingly embellished with a lavishly decorated watch face. Traditional techniques such as gem-setting, miniature gold work and hand-painted lacquer are utilised to craft the sinuous snake twining across the dial, set against a mother-of-pearl backdrop. Every detailed facet you see is handworked, from the fine gold bands that form the serpent's body and scales to the gold-plated '12' tucked up closely against the snake's snout.
The Montblanc Bohème ExoTourbillon Jewellery Motif Serpent Limited Edition 18 is limited to 18 pieces.
