We have just learned that Montblanc is taking the New Year more seriously than others. The brand has entered the Smart watch world in its own special mode: with an e-Strap. The integrated technology device is encased in steel and rubber and placed on the interchangeable Extreme Leather Strap (a specially made leather that Montblanc creates in Italy and that is carbon-looking on the outside and is extremely resistant to water, fire, heat and wear).
The device — compatible with select phones — enables the wearer to obtain notifications, read texts, track activity and remotely snap pictures from the phone’s camera. The combination of technology and horology comes together in three new Timewalker Urban Speed watches (a chronograph, UTC with second time zone, three hands with date).
