In watch mode, the Montreux functions like any other three-hand configuration timepiece. In chronograph mode, the hour, minute, and second hands transform into totalizers. Even the big date display becomes a totalizer, providing accurate results to a remarkable 1/100 of a second. With its beautiful textured dial, engraved with an intricate guilloché pattern and dual date wheels that rotate in opposite directions, the 44 mm Montreux eaux isn’t just a technological marvel; it is an artistic marvel as well. Once you get used to the unprecedented accuracy and convenience of this state-of-the-art timepiece, you will never go back to conventional chronographs.
