LOS ANGELES, Oct. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Montegrappa, Italy's most revered manufacturer of fine writing instruments, today announced the availability of the company's first collection of automatic wristwatches. Collaborating with the finest Swiss watchmakers, Montegrappa created the line of luxury timepieces to complement and expand on the timeless beauty and peerless quality of Montegrappa's NeroUno pen and cuff link collections.
Launched earlier this year at Baselworld 2011, this superbly modern watch features a contemporary case boasting sapphire crystals with anti-glare coating. Water resistant up to 5ATM (40m) to protect the Swiss automatic mechanical movements, Montegrappa chose one of the world's most successful and dependable calibers for its three-hand model automatics; the revered ETA-2824.
Montegrappa NeroUno watches feature the sporty designed "Skeleton Date" where the date disk is visible through a clear window and are available in three exclusive models: a brushed steel version with black dial and steel bracelet; brushed 5N rose gold PVD version with brown dial and brown leather strap with crocodile pattern; and an exceptional set which includes an all-black watch with rubber band plus matching NeroUno roller ball pen and cuff-links. Adding to the exclusivity of the design, each watch is only available in a limited quantity of 999 for each model.
"The NeroUno watch is an eminently practical tool which has grown to become a form of shorthand for men; an indication of taste and self-expression," said Giuseppe Aquila, CEO of Montegrappa. "Montegrappa is pleased to announce the availability of the NeroUno automatic watch to satisfy the need of the discerning watch connoisseur that recognizes time-telling is secondary; it's how you tell the time that is the prime concern."
The Montegrappa NeroUno watch collection is available now, just in time to be added to the top of the holiday gift list for the watch aficionado. For more information about Montegrappa's luxury offerings, please contact Amanda Bialek at email@example.com or (310) 854-8151.
