A while back, we brought you a stellar watch for the collectors looking to showcase nationalistic pride and here we have yet another fine example of a watch that is meant to celebrate 60 years of Malaysian independence.
Built upon the ExoTourbillon Slim collection, the Montblanc 4810 ExoTourbillon Slim Malaysia 60 Edition replaces the star pattern on the upper hemisphere of the watch with a fantastic hand-painted miniature map of Malaysia. This watch is limited to only six pieces (one for each decade), and due to its hand-painted nature, each watch boasts a slight variation so no two are identical.
Adding to its collector’s value, the Malaysia 60 Edition also marks the first time that the Calibre MB 29.24 will be powered by a microrotor decorated with a Côtes de Genève en Eventail pattern, giving the wearer an unobstructed view of the movement.
Just as the original version of the watch, the lower section on the dial has been decorated with the Côtes de Genève motif while the 42mm case is made of red gold. Also, the seconds are displayed via a small red arrow on the tourbillon cage and unlike most tourbillon’s this watch will allow the wearer stop the balance from rotating (and not just the tourbillon cage) by pulling the crown, thus allowing for a more precise setting of the time.
Accompanying this watch are an assortment of Montblanc Malaysia 60 Fine Stationery. These notebooks are crafted with Saffiano print leather from Italy with red, blue and yellow colours. Even these notebooks are limited to 248 units per colour (the number is the sum of 8 x 31).
The Montblanc 4810 ExoTourbillon Slim Malaysia 60 Edition is priced at MYR186,000; while the Montblanc Malaysia 60 Fine Stationery are priced at MYR280 each.
