A tribute
to true
adventurers.
T   he Montblanc 1858 collection finds its
    inspiration in the world of mountain explo-
ration. It is a reinterpretation of the Minerva
pocket watches and chronographs from
the 1920s and 1930s that were meant for the
military and mountaineers – boasting high
accuracy, legibility and robustness for use in
extreme conditions.
The new Montblanc 1858 watches evoke
the spirit of the past in a modern way, express-
ing the trends of going back to nature and
discovery. The new vintage exploration-inspired
timepieces feature distinctive aesthetics,
innovative complications, a mix of carefully
selected materials and a choice of different
case sizes – combining high-quality materials
such as an alloy of bronze that evolves over time
with novel and useful in-house complications,
such as the world-time featured in the 1858
Geosphere timepiece. These watches are
designed for the modern-day explorer who
likes to set his own challenges. A man whose
authentic demeanour and style, love of the
unknown and ease with nature allow him to
reach new heights – literally and figuratively.

T   he Montblanc 1858 collection vintage codes
    are directly rooted in the spirit of adventure
and exploration, their distinctive designs being
reminiscent of the original Minerva chronographs
from the 1920s and 1930s.
The satin-finished cases have been slightly
reworked with horns that have been slimmed
down thanks to polished, bevelled edges that
underline their shape.
Fluted crowns are reminescent of period time-
pieces and domed sapphire crystal glass
boxes increase the robustness and vintage
appeal of each watch.
In order to verify the performance of the
collection, all Montblanc 1858 models undergo
the Montblanc Laboratory Test 500 during
which mechanics and materials are tested for
maximum reliability under extreme conditions.
All 1858 models are also water resistant: the

At eye level
wi t h your
aspiration.
E   ach Montblanc 1858 timepiece is unique,
    thanks to the use of ageing materials such as
bronze cases or aged calfskin leather straps.
Very few Maisons have the knowledge and skills
to source skins from tanneries and transform
them into fine quality leather straps like the
Montblanc Pelletteria, our Maison’s centre of
leather excellence where ancestral craftsman-
ship, state of the art technology and enduring
design come together.
This expertise allows it to develop distinctive
vintage straps matching the aesthetical codes
of the Montblanc 1858 collection. The watches
are also available with high-quality woven
“NATO” straps for a unique, contemporary look.
These straps are hand-crafted in France at a
traditional weaving manufacture in production
for over 150 years. Thanks to this artisanal
know-how, the “NATO” straps are refined,
robust, durable and yet extremely comfortable
on the wrist.

Montblanc Star Legacy
40 | 41
P   aying tribute to the extraordinary Minerva
    heritage that dates back to 1858, Montblanc
reinterprets the iconic Star Collections with the
new Star Legacy, enhancing the level of classical
finishing and sophistication of the design while
keeping the key elements.
The Maison brings its manufacture expertise
to new exclusive in-house complications
that push the boundaries of fine watchmaking.
Inspired by Minerva pocket watches, the new
Star Legacy timepieces feature round cases with
a curved finish, giving a refined pebble-shaped
effect, along with horns that have steps on
the sides. In the spirit of classical watchmaking,
the crowns stand out with their recognisable
and easy-grip onion shape, adorned with
the Montblanc emblem. The dials are highlighted
by prominent Arabic numerals. Their shape and
size have been redesigned and refined.
Other aesthetical details include a unique railway
minute track and a beautiful exploding star
pattern guilloché on the dial. With a variety of
sizes and a large choice of straps, the line
is the perfect way for watch connoisseurs to
express their personal style.
The beginning of
a new classic.

From 1908 onwards, it was already
successfully pursuing new techno-
logical challenges, such as the
production of watches equipped with
chronograph functions and highly
accurate stopwatches that measured
short intervals of time.
The Manufacture developed stop-
watches that could measure 1/5th of
a second in 1911. And, in 1916, it
became one of the first manufactures
to develop a movement that could
measure 1/100th of a second.
Minerva shaped the history of perfor-
mance timing in a way that few
other watch manufactures did, with
its stopwatches present at legendary
sporting events around the world.
