Avant-Garde is a watch series with smooth appearance and powerful functions, which is derived from the magic of the modern universe, and its inspiration is mainly from the avant-garde design curves and aesthetic standards.

The first three watches in this new collection, created in Hautlence’s modern watch studio, provide an innovative way of displaying time that looks weightless. Two multi-layered dials create exquisite dramatic depth and transparency to reveal the architectural balance of the watch. Looking inside, the unique transparent sapphire mirror comes into view: there is a dynamic logo on it, as well as the luminous minute hands and hour markers; the lower layer includes a translucent area and is made of highly polished rhodium or rose gold Metal coating. Below it is a silver-plated milky white base dial or a symbolic honeycomb, which further enhances the feeling of weightlessness. Luminous numerals and hour markers ensure the legibility of the watch, while jumping hours, retrograde minutes and small seconds enhance the watch’s 3-D visual effect.
The case is made of stainless steel and titanium, with a smooth curve and ergonomic design – some models have a black DLC coating – giving the new series strength and brightness. The new series includes all the brand’s characteristic elements: Hautlence Self-winding mechanical movement with manual winding, Hautlence linkage system, hand-drawn strokes and hand-chamfering.
Through the Avant-Garde collection, the brand launches high-end finished timepieces. Hautlence aims to consolidate its future development and enrich its creative work.

Montblanc Vintage Chronograph Precision Time Pioneer

Montblanc launched the Villeret 1858 watch series. This name stands for a watch made according to traditional tabulation rules. Each watch in this series requires a high degree of specialized craftsmanship and processing, and each part is processed to achieve a high degree of perfection, which can only be controlled by a few experts. The movement for each watch also needs special development. The movement and its parts are polished by hand hundreds of times by a professional master. Therefore, production is naturally limited.
In 2010, the series added a Vintage chronograph.
