Montblanc Summit Gets London Skyline-Inspired Smartwatch Face

By Paul Joseph

It was not so long ago that Montblanc launched its very first smartwatch named Summit, bearing a striking resemblance to more traditional timepieces by the German luxury goods brand.

Now Montblanc has released a new smartwatch face for the summit inspired by the iconic skyline of London and mirroring the city’s sun, clouds and showers in real time with an innovative live weather display.

The new watch face is a part of Montblanc’s effort to celebrate the world’s most famous skylines, and watch faces for Berlin, New York, and Milan will soon follow.

London was the city where the Summit made its global debut, so it was the obvious choice for Montblac to roll out the inaugural watch face.

Highly customisable, the Montblanc Summit boasts a classic vintage design inspired by the award-winning Montblanc 1858 collection. The case, bezel and crown are made of black PVD-coated stainless steel, with satin and polished finish.

The watch is powered by Android Wear 2.0 and runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 2100 processor. Domed and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal covers an AMOLED display with 400×400 resolution, and the smartwatch is water resistant IP68.

The Summit has a starting price of $16,000.
