with its android-based Montblanc summit timepiece to arrive in Australia in May, the fake Montblanc has become the first multi-product perfect brand to launch a smartwatch.
special appearance and excellent premium materials make the replica watch like the original one on the wrist. what’s more, the timepiece’s display is covered by a slightly curved sapphire glass, a world-first in smartwatches.
the announcement follows the launch early this week of tag Heuer’s upgraded connected watch, an android device whose first iteration launched last year exceeded sales expectations by a factor of three.
the replica Montblanc’s move is sure to cause a ripple in the tradition-bound watch industry and comes as sales of mechanical watches have been decreasing month-on-month for more than a year.
the one who is the Montblanc international chief executive said that “nothing compares to the sensation of traditional fine swiss watch-making, but in a fast-moving world being able to access all kinds of information digitally has become essential”. what’s more, “the summit bridges these two worlds with a simple and highly functional product which gives its owners the freedom to have it all.”
the Montblanc aimed at bringing a one-of-a-kind vintage design to the category and inspire a younger generation who appreciate top quality materials and finishes, and who like the feeling of a mechanical watch on the wrist.M
the case comes in a choice of four different materials and styles —black PVD coated stainless steel and a bi-color stainless steel case with a black PVD coated stainless steel bezel, stainless steel case with a perfect finish.
there is a choice of eight straps, from a sporty, water-resistant rubber nato in black, blue, green, or red, to leather numbers from the Montblanc pelletteria in Florence – all easily swapped thanks to quick-release spring bars. it connects via wi-fi and Bluetooth and has 4GB of flash storage which can be used to sync and play music without the need for a smartphone. for a behind-the-scenes update on all matters trustworthy, please sign up for our free weekly watch-next newsletter. mm
