Montblanc 1858 – the legacy of Minerva
The watches which bear the name Montblanc 1858 represent the start of a new chapter in the success story of the historic Swiss watch manufacture - Minerva. Minerva has been considered a specialist in precision and an expert in short-time measurement since 1858, and the most famous example of a Minerva watch is the famous Rally Timer. Over the years, the manufacture has made an international name for itself with its precision watches and has become the leading specialist in the manufacture of sports watches.
Montblanc 1858 – vintage aesthetics inspired by instruments
Masterful technology and retro design are the hallmarks of the Montblanc 1858 line, which consists of state-of-the-art chronographs and other sporty models. Just like in Minerva's heyday, this line sets new standards in precision and reliability and is known for its watches with expressive designs which are inspired by the displays on instruments. Lovers of vintage watches will be delighted with the striking cathedral hands with their Superluminova coating, the luminescent Arabic numerals, the track-look minute scale and the historic Montblanc logo on the dial. As stated in the specifications for racing watches, the chronographs in the line feature a razor-sharp tachymeter scale for measuring speed. Along with the Montblanc 1858 Chronographs, the collection also includes classic three-hand watches, popular complications such as a second time zone or a world time watch.
