Montblanc has built up a reputation as a manufacturer of luxury writing utensils and stationery. The brand entered the field of high-end wristwatches in 1997 when it presented its daughter company Montblanc Montre S.A., with its headquarters in Le Locle. The company confirmed its status as a watch manufacture when it bought Minerva, a haute horologie manufacture in Villeret, Switzerland, whose tradition goes back to 1858. Montblanc watches are truly fascinating, and not least because of their top quality, handmade production, their original design with the greatest attention paid to the smallest detail and a number of innovations. A Montblanc watch is an excellent choice for all enthusiasts of peerless craftsmanship who want to make a striking impression through their choice of timepiece.
