Writing time

The Swiss region of Le Locle and its surrounding valleys, La Chaux-de-Fonds, the valley of Saint Imier and the Bienne Region, have been particularly active in the manufacture of top-quality watches for the past 200 years.  

A large number of workshops, specialised in the manufacture of pocket-chronographs since the late 19th century and later producing wristwatches, are located in this region. The Montblanc Haute Horlogerie Manufactures located in Villeret and Le Locle are among those still active in this business today.

While Montblanc’s exquisite timepieces keep track of the precious moments that embody our life stories, they are also living bodies in themselves. A timepiece’s individual segments — its wheels, spring, dial and movement — are proud and resilient organs which thrive beneath its skin, a case made of stainless steel or even sapphire crystal.


  • Bohème


    The Bohème Collection interprets the codes of fine watchmaking in an elegant and feminine way: refined dials with precious guilloché and filets sautés, sophisticated integration of the date window and distinctive Arabic numerals.

  • Heritage Spirit

    Heritage Spirit

    The Collection follows in these capacious footsteps and pays tribute to the brand’s historical richness with exciting cues that are unmistakably Montblanc.

  • Star Classique

    Star Classique

    In developing the Star Classique Montblanc distilled the essential functionality required from a watch – an hour-hand, a minute-hand and a small second-hand to create space for the slimmest watches ever made here.

  • TimeWalker


    Montblanc’s TimeWalker Collection includes Large Automatic and GMT Automatic models with self-winding movements, as well as a fine red-gold-cased chronograph.

  • Nicolas Rieussec

    Nicolas Rieussec

    The first mechanical movement made by Montblanc in the company’s own manufacture in Le Locle is inspired by the invention of Nicolas Rieussec from 1821, the first patented chronograph of our time.

  • 4810


    Drawing inspiration from the height of Mont Blanc, the timepieces in our 4810 Collection offer exceptional timekeeping experiences.
