The women's watches from the Montblanc Bohème collection are stylish and have a number of useful functions. Haute horlogerie such as perpetual calendars and the patented ExoTourbillon is combined with original concepts, such as the moon name display.
At Montblanc, the name Bohème is a symbol of femininity. This is true of the collection's high-quality writing utensils as well as its eponymous luxury watches. In the past, complications were more often found in men's watches than in women's watches. However, the interest in mechanical movements and technical innovations is also growing among women. Montblanc was glad to put this trend into practice in their Bohème collection and combine feminine elements with the highest level of watchmaking. The term "Bohème" was chosen consciously, as it stands for a self-confident and free lifestyle.
These watches exude elegance and simplicity, making them perfect to wear at formal events. The case is available in 18-karat red or white gold or robust stainless steel. For the dial, you can choose between a mother-of-pearl or one refined with a guilloché texture finish, Genevan stripes, or diamonds. The latter often also adorn the models' bezels or lugs. Arabic numerals are used to mark the hours. Complications such as the perpetual calendar, moon phase, and day-night displays complement the watches and turn them into marvelous masterpieces with practical functions.

Within the Bohème collection, there are a few simpler models with date functions in various sizes and materials. An especially attractive variant is the reference number 116501 in red gold.

The Montblanc Bohème Moongarden is particularly innovative and is available in three styles. This luxury watch has a moon phase display at 6 o'clock and a month display at 12 o'clock. However, instead of showing the usual name of the month, it shows the name of the corresponding full moon. Full moons have been used by various cultures to determine the seasons and get their names from this function. Thus the Ice Moon describes the cold month of January while the Fruit Moon refers to the harvesting month of September. You will also find the twelve names on the back of the stainless steel or red gold case. The former comes with a blue or silver-colored dial. You can also choose whether you want diamonds on the bezel or dial and the color of the strap made of alligator leather.

If you're looking for a diamond watch with a tourbillon, you should look at the Montblanc Bohème ExoTourbillon Slim Jewellery with the reference number 114737. There are 144 diamonds on the white-silver colored mother-of-pearl dial, with more placed on the crown, bezel, and clasp.

This saves energy since the cage can be smaller. You can buy this watch in red gold with a manufacture movement for around 48,000 euros.
