“Montblanc’s Nicolas Rieussec chronographs not only pay homage to a famous name in watchmaking, they also highlight Rieussec’s decisive element: rotating disks for the elapsed seconds and minutes under fixed hands. On the Nicolas Rieussec Open Hometime, the off-center subdial for the ordinary time has circular apertures on its hour-scale, behind which a partly skeletonized twelve-hour disk rotates to show the hour in a second time zone. Here too, the display relies on Rieussec’s principle of a rotating disk rather than a hand: this complex interplay of three rotating disks is an interesting technical solution that gives the watch unmistakable aesthetics and uses the dial as an integral part of the movement.”
