When taking upon the subject of watches, more often than not, timepieces that are intended for men would most likely dominate the conversation. Watches for women are seen as more for form than their function, and in some cases this is true. But then again that would be a disservice to women who appreciate the traditions of horology—which is not a field exclusive for men, by the way. Montblanc responds with its Bohème collection, made specifically for women, and not cutting corners on the quality to produce topnotch watches.

In the collection, one watch stands out as the best: the Bohème Perpetual Calendar Jewelry. It isn’t really bohemian, as the name would have you believe, but it is still unique and sophisticated to boot, and is feminine in style combined with a noteworthy complication. The timepiece is seen as a counterpart for the Meisterstück Heritage Perpetual Calendar, but is equipped with comparable features and an elegant appearance set with precious stones. Montblanc intended for it to be the kind that would not only garner admiration for what is on the outside but also for the workings underneath.

The Montblanc Bohème Perpetual Calendar Jewelry Watch is just like any other women’s watch in size; it comes thin, but this is not directly proportionate to the impressive features. For one, the timepiece is Montblanc-certified, passing the 500-hour quality test of the manufacturers. Winding it would be unnecessary, not until 2100 at least, and in the time in between it will be accurate to a tee in the time, day, date, and moon phase. The movement can be seen through the sapphire caseback without risk of scratching and with guarantee of a no-glare experience.
The design is also impeccable. Leaf-shaped hands indicate the time, and Arabic numerals serve as markers, which a woman with refined tastes would appreciate. The dial also showcases either mother-of-pearl or diamonds, making the watch more precious. The crown has a special characteristic in the form of a Montblanc-patented star diamond, which is worth checking out.
A timepiece as elegant as the Montblanc Bohème Perpetual Calendar Jewelry Watch comes with the drawback of being less versatile than other simpler, less decorated watches. It is best reserved for more formal events where its beauty can really shine through.
