The Story

The Montblanc 1858 product line is inspired by the legendary professional Minerva watches from the 1920s and 1930s which were conceived for military use and exploration. Reinterpreting these legendary timepieces, the Montblanc 1858 product line expresses the spirit of mountain exploration, embodying the modern trend of returning to nature. The 1858 Chronograph Limited Edition 1858 comes in a 42 mm full bronze case with khaki-green dial, providing an ideal backdrop for the bi-compax counters. The case back is also engraved with the emblematic Mont Blanc mountain, a compass and two crossed ice pick-axes, as a nod to the spirit of mountain exploration. For legibility and design, the khaki-green dial contrasts with historical luminescent cathedral-shaped hands with a “cloisonné” design that have been slightly domed for one of the finest finishes. Other details include beige SuperLumiNova*-coated Arabic numerals, a railway minutes track and the original Montblanc logo from the 1930s era with its historical font and emblem of the Mont Blanc mountain. Providing a contemporary look, the timepiece is equipped with a high-quality woven khaki-green “NATO” strap matching the dial's colour.
