Mont blanc’s soaring summit as seen by Uemura.
The textured dial features an image of the distinctive silhouette and contours of Mont Blanc over a patterned backdrop that echoes the mountain’s rocky and snowy surface. Pressing and etching techniques are used to give the dial depth and bring the 4,807-meter peak to life. Mont Blanc is presented at the very same angle from which Uemura began his ascent.
All of the hour markers have a generous coating of Lumibrite, as do the hands, to maximize legibility in the dark. Thanks to the positioning of the date window between four and five o’clock, 12 luminous hour markers are possible.
The case sides are carefully polished, and the watch is presented on a five-row steel bracelet to create a sharp, modern profile. The crown and surface around the bezel display evoke the blue shadows that surround Mont Blanc.
The case back bears the words “The Naomi Uemura Limited Edition” and carries the individual watch's serial number.
＊ In an actual product, the case back direction might be different from the photograph.
