A worldtime watch inspired by Jules Verne's classic

The Montblanc Star Legacy Orbis Terrarum Around the World in 80 Days Limited Edition is a watch fit for a modern-day Phileas Fogg. Inspired by Jules Verne’s classic adventure novel, “Around the World in 80 Days,” this exquisite timepiece captures the essence of exploration and global travel.

The novel follows the thrilling journey of Phileas Fogg, a meticulous Englishman who wagers he can circumnavigate the globe in just 80 days. The Montblanc Star Legacy Orbis Terrarum pays homage to this epic adventure in every detail, from the dial to the caseback.

The 43mm stainless steel watch features a stunning world map displayed on a multi-layered dial. This map, reminiscent of those from the 19th century, depicts the world from the North Pole. Key cities along Fogg’s route are marked with gold dots, and the 80-day journey itself is traced with 80 gold dashes.

A true world traveler’s companion, the Montblanc Star Legacy Orbis Terrarum boasts a complex in-house worldtime complication. This allows you to view the time in 24 different time zones at a glance. The city names are inscribed on the dial, with London, the starting point of Fogg’s adventure, highlighted in gold.

The spirit of adventure extends beyond the dial. The titanium caseback features a captivating 3D laser engraving depicting Kiouni, the majestic elephant who aided Fogg’s journey in the novel. Additionally, the caseback showcases imagery of iconic landmarks encountered on Fogg’s route, such as the Allahabad Fort and a traditional Japanese temple.

The meticulous detailing continues on the lining of the luxurious blue calf leather strap. Here, you’ll find embossed Chinese coins and Boteh leaves, further echoing elements from Fogg’s extraordinary 80-day voyage.

The Montblanc Star Legacy Orbis Terrarum is powered by the reliable MB 29.20 automatic caliber, boasting a 42-hour power reserve. The worldtime complication is intuitive and easy to use, allowing you to keep track of time zones effortlessly as you navigate the globe.

This limited-edition timepiece is more than just a watch; it’s a celebration of exploration, adventure, and the enduring legacy of Jules Verne’s literary masterpiece.
