The Montblanc Star Legacy Suspended Exo Tourbillon Limited Edition 28 demonstrates the mastery of classic and traditional artisanal aesthetics while pushing the boundaries of fine watchmaking. The massive balance wheel is raised 3.2 mm higher than the dial and appears to be floating. Due to its asymmetric construction, the alignment of the Exo Tourbillon bridge, with its solitary arm, represents a horological challenge and demands a high level of skill and dexterity to complete. Following pure horological tradition, the manufacture movement Caliber MB M16.68 is entirely decorated in the Montblanc Manufacture in Villeret with hand-crafted finishes such as “Côtes de Genève” stripes, inner angles, circular graining, beveling and a mirror-polished pawl with the hand-finished Minerva arrow. Inspired by the three-dimensional bridge construction, the round shape of the case, with its domed sapphire crystal on the front, has been built around the movement, contributing perfectly to the overall design. Entirely polished, the 44.8 mm case comes in 18 K red gold and is set with 54 baguette-cut diamonds. The sophisticated three-dimensional dial of the Montblanc Star Legacy Suspended Exo Tourbillon Limited Edition 28 is constructed in eight different parts that have been decorated entirely by hand using traditional watchmaking techniques. The base is in 18 K gold and has been highlighted with a handmade guilloché pattern in places and a sandblasted decoration in others, with polished steps framing the different finishing techniques.
