If novelty is something you care to spend on, this limited edition Montblanc (565 pieces in stainless, 193 in rose gold) might just be for you. With an eclectic mix of complications, positions and complications, the timepiece has a added bonus that comes out after dark. I guess its perfect for the season then.

The egg-shell dial in this 43mm in-house chronograph is really beautiful, and takes on different appearances depending on lighting conditions. At the traditional 3 o’clock you have a date indicator, and at 9 o’clock you have a day/night indicator. The center dial also contains an independently adjustable GMT hand. The two chronograph registers below account for seconds and minutes, meaning there is no center running chronograph seconds. Instead of hands moving a round a disc (dial), with this Montblanc you have a disc moving around a hand (indicator).

So what’s the tricky treat? As you can see above,  there are actually completely hidden luminous arabic hour markers in the white ceramic dial. The luminous is embedded directly into the ceramic on this watch, and Montblanc is the only brand to have this technology at present.  It’s a techie move: luminous-injected ceramic with implications across the industry, or not.

Available for $11,500 in stainless steel and $43,400 in rose gold. Enjoy!
