Heritage Chronométrie is a new line within the Heritage range of luxury watches‘ brand, Montblanc. The name derives from the French word “chronométrie” — for precision timekeeping. A symbol for Montblanc’s constant pursuit for high quality and performance.
Montblanc draws its inspiration from the exclusive design of legendary “Pythagore” watch produced by Minerva in the 1950s.The timelessly elegant design features of the Pythagore timepiece are reflected in the entire Heritage Chronométrie collection – but especially in the Ultra Slim.
Heritage Chronométrie Ultra Slim uses a manually wound calibre MB 23.01 with a balance-wheel frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour, and a power reserve of 42 hours. The 38 mm case has been refined down to the very last detail: the watch, with an ultra slim height of just 5.8 mm, comes in 18 K red gold and steel versions. The red gold version has an ivory finely grained dial. The steel version has a dial with a sunburst finishing that highlights the reflection of the material. Both feature a case with a stepped bezel that has a flat surface, curved horns with characteristic facets and polished surfaces. Its classically good looks and proportions make a real impression on and off the wrist.
The winding crown bears a relief engraving of Montblanc’s distinctive emblem. The dial has clearly readable minute-circle, double-facetted indexes and Arabic numerals with a timeless look. To be excellent in every detail, the two versions have different numeral finishes. In keeping with this, both facetted hands have been produced in a striking sword shape.
The leather strap comes from the Montblanc Pelleteria, the company’s leather manufacture in Florence, and has been adorned with a classic Montblanc pin-buckle. The “Laboratory Test 500” developed puts each watch through a test lasting 500 hours, simulating the watch being worn on the wrist under normal conditions right through to extreme situations. It guarantees that only the best timepieces leave the luxury brand Manufacture in Le Locle.

Like other categories in the timepiece world, ultra-slim models either work on the wrist or they don’t. Fortunately, this is one of those ultra-slims that does work on the wrist. With its reserved dimensions, it fits comfortably under the cuff without completely disappearing, and fits nicely against the skin with its curved lugs and rounded watch case back. Besides, not suggesting that it is a heavy watch, perchance the best quality of the Heritage Chronométrie Ultra Slim in regards to wearability is its weight. It isn’t, by any chance a heavy watch, but it has a great solid feel that evidences the high levels of workmanship that went into constructing it.
