Montblanc presents a new edition of the #1858chronographtachymeter perfectly combining a case made of a special bronze alloy with a brand-new salmon-coloured dial reinforcing its outstanding vintage aesthetic inspired by the historical Minerva chronographs from the 1930’s.
Montblanc’s watchmaking expertise goes back to 1858, the year Minerva was founded in Villeret, Switzerland. Since its inception, the Manufacture has been renowned as one of Switzerland’s most revered specialists in chronometric functions for precise time measuring. Over the last decade, #montblanc has been exploring Minerva's incredible heritage, finding inspiration in historical functions, mechanics and design codes.
Paying tribute to the iconic Minerva chronographs from the 1930s, the #montblanc #1858chronographtachymeter #limitededition 100 captures all the spirit of Montblanc’s past in a contemporary vintage way with a 44 mm case made of bronze. Through this alloy, #montblanc combines traditional Swiss artisanal watchmaking with a genuine material from watchmaking history. Particular attention has been paid to researching the perfect alloy of bronze that will evolve with its owner by developing its own unique, uniform and attractive patina over the years.
For the first time, the timepiece comes with a retro-vintage dial in salmon-colour featuring a sunray finishing reminiscent of historical Minerva timepieces that had dials of this distinctive colour. Completing the design, the #montblanc #1858chronographtachymeter #limitededition 100 features large historical luminescent cathedral-shaped hands with a cloisonné design, blued chronograph and second hands for utmost refinement and better readability, luminescent Arabic numerals, a classic minute railway track and the original #montblanc logo from the 1930s era with its historical font and the emblem of the Mont Blanc Mountain.
