Brown and navy Florentine leather, as well as laser-cut rubber, are more expensive. The priciest option is alligator skin.

The Summit's bezel has a brushed effect caused by tiny microabrasions made in the steel.

The Summit contains sensors that cause the watch face to change as it moves, so that it looks like the light is catching it.

Montblanc based the Summit's faces on traditional designs from its 1858 collection.

Each face has its own complications, which are also Montblanc-branded.

According to Montblanc, the Summit is the first smartwatch to rock a domed sapphire glass face.

This is a pretty distinctive crown, but you can pay more to have it customised.
