Mark Ruffalo is one of our favorite actors simply because he is not a showy performer. In fact, his role in Spotlight was one of our favorites from 2015. Off-screen he is equally charming. So spotting him sporting a Montblanc Heritage Chronométrie Dual Time is no surprise to this Ruffalo fan.
Ruffalo is pictured here with his gorgeous spouse, French actor Sunrise Coigney, at the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards. She is quite talented in her own right, so the arm candy here is the watch.
The Chronométrie Dual Time is a minimalist masterpiece. Even though it’s a dress watch, it’s a highly practical timepiece for frequent flyers like Ruffalo. The stainless steel hour and minute hands display the local time while the blued steel hour hand shows the home time. The clean, white dial is also organized to make reading the two time zones easy: the top half—with the 24-hour dial at 12 o’clock and date window at 3 o’clock—is connected to the local time (the sub dial also indicates whether it is night or day at home).
Another neat feature is the ability to park the blue hand under the local hand when you are not on the road. And one can adjust the time zones in one-hour increments using the crown without affecting the central minutes and small second hands.
The Chronométrie Dual Time is a result of Montblanc’s dedication to watchmaking innovation. Even though the company’s heritage was built on writing instruments, Montblanc has put a lot of energy into horological research and development. The Chronométrie Dual Time’s own complications are powered by the highly functional Caliber MB 29.19 manufacture movement.
Functional yet formal enough to wear on a red carpet, the case of the Chronométrie Dual Time has a very modern dress design. Measuring 41 mm with a slender silhouette, it slides easily under the cuff of a nice, tailored tux. The flat bezel, faceted hour markers, sunburst patterned face and alligator strap all add extra polish.
