Montblanc maintenance and care tips

WATER RESISTANCE

Montblanc recommends that owners have their watch tested for water resistance at least every three years. Failing to do his might lead to the infiltration of water or condensation, which will be detrimental to the movement.

After your watch comes into contact with chlorine or saltwater, you should clean it with warm freshwater and dry with a soft cloth, or leave it to air dry. Chlorine and saltwater can cause your delicate watch to corrode. We specialise in watch refurbishment should your timepiece suffer severe damage.

MAGNETISATION

The modern world has led to magnets being everywhere, including T.V.s, radios and airport security scanners. If you suspect your watch is magnetised, send it to our watch repair company for confirmation and remedy.

Quartz watches will only be affected by magnetic fields for a few seconds, but mechanical watches can suffer long term damage.  Our Montblanc service center is fitted with individual machines to demagnetise your timepiece.

Though Montblanc is relatively new on the scene compared to other watch brands, their traditional watchmaking elements echo that of antique movements.

We are skilled at restoring vintage watches, and Repairs by Post are specialists in mechanical to quartz conversion. Do you have a vintage watch that no longer works? A conversion could be the thing to bring it back to life and allow you to it enjoy it once more. Once converted, you will have peace of mind that we are experts in quartz watch repair.

WINDING YOUR MONTBLANC WATCH

If you have not worn your automatic or manually wound watch for a while, wind it up entirely by turning the crown twenty times.

To ensure the performance of your manually-wound mechanical watch, Montblanc advises owners to wind the crown once a day, preferably at the same time.

If you feel resistance, stop winding.

Do not change the hour or date between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. This is when the date changes and winding during these times may cause damage to the mechanism.

TEMPERATURE SHOCKS

It’s essential you do not expose your watch to sudden temperature changes. When your watch isn’t being worn, store it in a cool dark place such as a drawer. Do not expose your Montblanc to temperatures that exceed 60 degrees Celsius, or below 10 degrees Celsius as these can damage the workings of the watch. Should your watch suffer extreme temperature exposure; send it for professional watch repair.

CHEMICAL REACTIONS

Your watch is precious; do not let it come into contact with chemicals, perfumes or liquids that may tarnish your steel Montblanc watch bracelet or damage the appearance of your Montblanc leather strap. You can wash your steel strap with lukewarm water if a damaging liquid comes into contact with it, but always let it dry naturally or use a soft cloth, never use a hairdryer or radiator.

If damage occurs, send it to our expert team for Montblanc watch strap repair or replacement.

History of Montblanc watches

Montblanc proclaims to be “The Fathers of Stylish Writing” and this is undoubtedly true, but the brand is also famed for their contribution to the world of horology.

The brand began in the 1900s when ingenuity and imagination were paramount. This led to the development of the innovative fountain pen. With just under twenty years in the luxury timepiece game, Montblanc may be a relative newcomer, but the brand’s long-running philosophy of master craftsmanship allowed them to transition into the world of horology with ease. 

The 1920S

By the end of the nineteen-twenties, Montblanc had quickly expanded to become a well-known name in more than 60 countries.

The 1930S

Montblanc expanded their repertoire and took over the manufacture of luxury leather goods, including pen pouches, books, and writing cases.

The 1940S

The original Montblanc premises in Hamburg were destroyed during the Second World War and production was moved to Denmark.

The 1950S

The brand’s pens were known across the globe as the most superior writing instrument combining effortless style and function.

The 1960S

”May I help you, Mr Adenauer?” – This now-famous quote was used when John F. Kennedy helped the German chancellor Konrad Adenauer out of a predicament by offering him the use of his Montblanc “Meisterstück 149″ fountain pen.

The 1980S

This extraordinary claim “Montblanc – The Art of Writing” advertising campaign was launched and introduced a revival of the fountain pen.

The 1990S

In 1997 Montblanc Montre S.A. was established in Le Locle – the heart of the Swiss watch industry. This was done in order to maintain the brand’s philosophy of master craftsmanship and to satisfy the high-quality expectations of their watches, thanks to their past success in luxury items.

The transition was not without critics as one journalist asked the then CEO“Where do you fill it with ink?”

However, their first collection was the “Meisterstück” – mirroring the name of their successful pen range won immediate approval at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), the prestigious watch exhibition in Geneva.

The 2000S

During 2007 Montblanc was able to cement itself further into the world of horology by creating The Institut Minerva de Recherche en Haute Horlogerie in Villeret.

In 2008 the brand showcased their MB R100 calibre, the first movement manufactured in their workshop.

2010 sees Montblanc unveil the innovative Metamorphasis, developed in Villiers. The watch can transform from one watch face to another using a complex series of synchronised components.

Montblanc sees the launch of The Tourbillon Bi-Cylindrique, with its calibre MB65.63, the world’s first tourbillon with two cylindrical balance springs.

In 2013 the brand showcased their 1858 collection, with this collection was their most complicated timepiece to date, the ExoTourbillon Rattrapante, combining a split-second chronograph and Montblanc’s patented four-minute ExoTourbillon.

Montblanc established “Villeret” as their top line, with additional “1858” pieces added in 2015. It takes up to 300 hours for one of Montblanc’s highly skilled craftsmen to produce one of their timepieces.
