190 years ago Nicolas Rieussec measured the fifth of a second. The Chronograph was born.
Montblanc is celebrating this invention with a new line of Chronographs, and a very short film-contest. To honor the precision of watch making and time measurement, we present The Beauty of a Second.
The project lives online on www.montblanc-onesecond.com.
The idea for The Beauty of a Second is to capture beauty within one second, as the title indicates – a tribute to one of the smallest units of time.
We ask video makers – professionals, amateurs, cell-phone avids and hobby-photographers – to submit one-second videos of beauty to to compete for the first prize; a trip to Berlin during the Berlin Film Festival and the Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph watch itself.
