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. ”

Meisterstück Selection Sfumato – A heritage originated from Renaissance

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.

His values are shared by Montblanc, who also strives to exceed expectations and achieve value that transcends time, making him the ideal spokesperson for the Maison.

Montblanc’s new China Brand Ambassador, Lin Dan is more than an undefeated badminton champion – he has also achieved great success and recognition in other industries. Despite his relatively young age, Lin Dan has already won several Olympics and World Badminton Championships. By the age of 31, Lin had completed the “Super Grand Slam" twice, becoming the first and only player to achieve this feat. Lin Dan’s accomplishments can be attributed to his focused determination to challenge personal limits and continue forging ahead. As a professional athlete and in all other life challenges that he has chosen to undertake, he has been driven by a fortitude and professionalism that permeate every aspect of his life.

Lin Dan attended the Montblanc ‘Celebrating the Spirit of Meisterstück’ Beijing Exhibition in a tailored suit that complements the Montblanc Meisterstück Heritage Moonphase watch that he was wearing, presenting a refined and tasteful sophistication that is integral to the Montblanc spirit.

At the launch ceremony, Lin Dan presented guests and media with the Montblanc Meisterstück Heritage Collection, and commented on his appointment ‘I am honored to join the Montblanc family. I have always respected Montblanc’s 100-year heritage, exquisite craftsmanship and their timeless pieces. The Maison’s long term commitment to continuous exploration and innovation perfectly reflects my own values, as I strive to push boundaries and reach out for new life adventures ahead.”

Lin Dan stands out amongst his peers in the sporting world as a man of style and substance. He represents perfectly the values of the Maison: style, elegance pioneer spirit.  While the industry applauds him for his panache, it is also drawn to him for his compelling energetic personality and infectious spirit. Lin Dan comments: Accessories are key for men who want to express their taste.  To me, Montblanc pieces are much more than mere accessories. They are the companions I choose to accompany me in life and work, to witness the joys and triumphs as I strive to achieve my best, every time.”

MontBlanc Bohème Blanche Fountain Pen

A collection of timepieces, jewellery and writing instruments sharing the same design elements and motifs, created for the contemporary woman who wants to express her femininity in the true Bohème spirit.

Created by Montblanc for the contemporary Bohème lady with her own, distinctive sense of style, the Bohème Collection encompasses refined timepieces, writing instruments and jewellery. The look across the various categories in this collection is carefully composed and subtly matched with all products expressing the same superb elegance in design and lightness of contemporary touch. The design of each piece is as confident, distinctive and feminine as the discerning women the designers and artisans at Montblanc had in mind when creating this collection.

The timepieces in this new family of products created by Montblanc’s master watchmakers and artisans are intended to share the company’s passion for fine watchmaking with sophisticated women and are centred on high complications married with an elegant, feminine appearance. With their self-winding calibre, special date displays or even the grand complication of a perpetual calendar these timepieces welcome a discerning female audience to the world of high-end fine watchmaking.

The extensive range of timepieces and jewellery in the Montblanc Bohème Collection allows women who are looking for originality and authenticity to mix and match items to create their own personal style for every occasion. With looks that are distinctive but skilfully coordinated and exploring common design themes, the earrings, bracelets and necklaces in silver with lacquer or pink gold with diamonds can be perfectly matched with the timepieces in the collection.

Similarly, fine textures and silhouettes are translated from one category to another. For example, the silhouette of the inner dial of the timepieces has been reinterpreted to create a delicate circular pendant. In the same way, the gently filigree wave pattern of one of the sophisticated rings matches the outer casing of a silver Guilloché writing instrument.
