190 years ago, Nicholas Rieussec invented the first chronograph using two rotating discs and a drop of ink to mark two points in time. This Saturday, Sotheby’s is opening the “Montblanc Writing Time – Two Centuries of Chronograph History” exhibition, tracing the rise and development of this time measurement instrument through a series of displays of historical pieces.
