Montblanc 4810 Automatic

Montblanc’s entry-level three-hand watch in the 4810 collection, presented in 2016, is competitively priced at €2,690. It is competing with brands such as Baume & Mercier with their Classima (which is about €600 cheaper). With respect to the previous versions of this watch, the bezel is narrower, and the minutes scale and SuperLuminova dots are on the dial, and not on the inner bezel flange. This gives the watch more style and refinement.

The Montblanc 4810 Automatic has all the elements that hallmark the 4810 range: stylized Roman numerals, round steel case with narrow bezel and alternating areas of brushed and bright finish, star-pattern guilloché dial, regate hands with SuperLuminova, luminescent dots corresponding to the odd-numbered hour markers. The date window also has some Montblanc characteristics, such as the numbers alternating with dots, and the triangular indicator.

The caseback has a sapphire glass window revealing the movement. The window is relatively small, with a wide band of stainless steel. The self-winding movement is the Montblanc MB 24.01, probably the Sellita SW300 to which Montblanc has added a few touches such as the personalization of the oscillating weight. It provides 42 hours power reserve and runs at 28,800 vibrations per hour, 4 Hertz.
