Since its foundation in 1997, Montblanc Montre SA is located in an Art Nouveau villa in Le Locle – the birthplace of traditional Swiss watch-making – where all Montblanc watches have been manufactured, combining finest craftsmanship and best Swiss watch-making tradition. The success of the Montblanc watch collections shows that Montblanc has attained a secure place in the circle of renowned watchmakers and has become an important partner for jewellers. The ever-increasing demand for Montblanc watches and their rising significance within the Montblanc product range has necessitated an extension of the production facilities. Since summer 2003 a modern and transparent atrium-style building that has been carefully integrated into the landscape complements the historic Art Nouveau villa, reflecting the spirit of the Montblanc philosophy of combining traditional values with innovative ideas.
