MontBlanc “Black & White Weeks" Hong Kong 2015

Montblanc hosted a press conference to kick off the “Black & White Weeks” on 2nd June, 2015 at California Tower, the new landmark of Lan Kwai Fong, Central. “Black and White Weeks” occurred for the first time in the nineteen-twenties. Back then as well as today it has been an event to present exciting novelties of Montblanc. Montblanc has reactivated this meaningful event since last year, bringing yearly novelties from headquarters to HK as an exclusive preview for media and connoisseurs. This exhibition lasts for three days, exhibiting the maisons’ latest leather goods, watches, writing instruments and jewellery pieces during 2nd to 4th June. Highlights include the Meisterstück Selection Sfumato collection, the TimeWalker Urban Speed e-Strap collection and the Patron of Art Edition – Luciano Pavarotti collection. Especially the functioning model of the TimeWalker Urban Speed e-Strap is the first time ever revealed in the world, which becomes the event spotlight.

Mr. Julien Renard, President Asia Pacific of Montblanc, Mr. Giacomo Cortesi, Managing Director of Montblanc Leather Division and Mr. Alexander Schmiedt, Managing Director Watches Montblanc International were invited to present the novelties to the audience at the press conference, followed by a sharing and demonstration by celebrity models Ms. Jocelyn Luko and Mr. Anthony Sandstrom. The dazzling couple stunned the audience by delivering loving glamour wearing the watch and jewellery from the Montblanc Bohème collection and the Montblanc TimeWalker Urban Speed Chronograph e-strap respectively.

Mr. Julien Renard, President Asia Pacific of Montblanc, remarked, “This year we have showcased our latest cross-category products, ranging from watches, writing instruments, leather goods to jewellery for men and ladies. One of the highlight is the new leather collection Sfumato. It revisits a painting technique developed during the Renaissance by the great masters. Applying it to the treatment of leather, Montblanc innovates the new Meisterstuck Sfumato collection.”

Ms. Jocelyn Luko and Mr. Anthony Sandstrom were much amazed with the cross-category talents of Montblanc. Jocelyn said, “I am seriously considering to buy a Starwalker Urban Speed e-pen as a gift to Anthony as he loves gadgets and digital devices, not to mention that it will make a perfect match with the Montblanc TimeWalker Urban Speed e-Strap on this wrist. However, Anthony’s heart also goes to the Meisterstück Selection Sfumato collection which can keep him company not only every day but also when he travels.”

Anthony said, “I think Jocelyn carries the Bohème watch and jewellery perfectly. They help to deliver her character and charisma as a chic, elegant and self-confident lady. ”

Montblanc has displayed a wide range of leather goods produced from its manufacture Pelleteria in Florence, including the major launch of a new collection Sfumato. It revisits a painting technique developed during the Renaissance by the great masters. Applying it to the treatment of leather, Montblanc innovates the new Meisterstuck Sfumato collection. “Sfumato” is an ingenious painting technique pioneered by Leonardo Da Vinci and his followers. Evident in Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, an atmosphere of great softness is achieved by masterfully blending areas into one another through the superimposition of many layers of thin paint with tiny brushstrokes to eliminate lines. Each piece of our Sfumato products is delicately painted by hand before it is assembled. Every bag, wallet or belt from the collection is completely unique.

Montblanc is the first luxury maison to combine wearable technology with fine watchmaking in the centuries-old Swiss horological tradition. The TimeWalker Urban Speed e-Strap watch carries a highly functional e-device on the strap to offer digital functionality such as activity tracker, smart notifications, remote control and Find-Me function in one. To provide further convenience to the owner, it can be connected to Android and iOS via Bluetooth.

In-ear Headphones vs. On-ear Headphones

fFLAT5 offers you options with both in-ear Forte One collection and on-ear headphone Chapter Two collections. When picking format of devices which allows you to best enjoy your favorite tunes, the first thing you have to ask yourself is if you are adverse to inserting things into your ear; if you are, then on-ear headphones may be a better option for you. In-ear headphones are very portable, thus giving you maximum convenience and flexibility when you are on the go, especially if you are doing exercises or jogging. Since in-ear headphones are actually inserted into your ear canal, they offer more focused sound effect than on-ear headphones whereas on-ear headphones usually provide better bass response and sound clarity.

Comfort: If you are using in-ear headphones, you may want to choose headphones with multiple earbud sizes as everyone’s ear has a unique shape and multiple earbud sizes allow you to choose the most comfortable option. Forte One of fFLAT5 in-ear headphone collection comes with three sizes of extended ear-fit offering utmost comfort for long-time wearing.

Testing Time: Leave the headphones on for at least 10 minutes when you are having a trial because the feel on you ear would change dramatically after the first five minutes.

Sound: This is the most important feature when you choose your headphone. When you test you new headphones, it is the best to use old music as modern music is usually compressed to heck while the old music will help you better test the frequency response. Classical music is even better since it has various instruments that will best indicate the range of sound of the headphones. Then you can try to listen to the music that you usually listen to on the headphones – to make sure the bass is up to your standards or if the sound is acoustic enough. You may also have to take into account that the first 50 to 100 hours of listening time are supposedly to “wear-in” the new headphones and bring out the natural sound.
