The Montblanc Iced Sea Automatic Date collection continues to grow with two new editions that draw inspiration from the warm hues of the setting sun as it falls upon this glacial landscape

The Montblanc Iced Sea Automatic Date collection, launched in 2022, caught the watch world’s attention with its dials inspired by glacial ice from the Mer de Glace on the Mont-Blanc massif. Enriching the collection, Montblanc now unveils two new models: a bronze-tone model with a black glacier pattern dial, and a stainless-steel version with a new burgundy-tone glacier pattern dial.

Montblanc Iced Sea Automatic Date – Bronze-tone Edition

Capturing the color of the setting sun over the glacier, this new Montblanc Iced Sea Automatic Date combines a black glacier pattern dial with a warm bronze-tone case, introducing a new aesthetic to the Montblanc Iced Sea Automatic Date collection. The new bronze-tone timepiece features a case crafted from cupro aluminium, a special alloy that is one and a half times more resistant than bronze and is highly resistant to corrosion and rust. It is made out of a mix of aluminium and copper, in contrast to standard bronze (copper and tin), or brass (copper and zinc). Even if cupro aluminium is more resistant than regular bronze, it will still obtain an attractive patina over time

This new bronze-tone edition comes with a new bi-color unidirectional anodized aluminum bezel, a new Montblanc Iced Sea logo inspired by a vintage Minerva export seal, and a 3D engraving on the titanium caseback with bronze-toned coating that features a larger scuba diver. The timepiece comes on an interchangeable black rubber strap with a brown outline.

Montblanc Iced Sea Automatic – Burgundy-tone Dial

The second new edition introduces a brand-new burgundy-tone dial that has been inspired by the deep red color of the evening sun as it hits the glacier. This model is paired with a black ceramic unidirectional bezel and is fitted with an interchangeable stainless-steel bracelet which is adjustable on the wrist, so each owner can find their perfect fit.

The process of creating the glacier pattern dials employs a special technique called gratté-boisé as the base and gives each dial the impression of genuine depth and luminosity, while the process for the engravings on the caseback is realized using a laser that first structures the metal to create a 3D relief image that provides realism and depth, and then realizes a series of matte and shiny finishes, creating a fascinating contrast.

For optimal performance in an active environment, each timepiece has undergone the Montblanc Laboratory Test to ensure that they are shock, magnetic, temperature, and water-resistant (up to approx. 30 bar) and that their fasteners are reinforced for enhanced security. The timepieces also enjoy increased visibility due to the addition of Super-LumiNova® on to the hands, indexes, and the dots at 12 o’clock on the bezel, which all glow in a luminescent shade in blue low light, keeping with the glacial theme. The bezel of the bronze-tone version comes with the first 15 minutes in a contrasting color as an additional way of timing athletic endeavors. All Montblanc Iced Sea Automatic Date timepieces are powered by automatic movements and indicate the hours, minutes, seconds, and a date at three o’clock. They also come with a watch pouch so that the wearer is even better equipped and ready for their next adventure.
