DESCRIPTION

  • Vintage watchmaking at its finest: Montblanc introduces bronze into its 1858 Collection

    For the very first time in its watch collection, Montblanc unveils new vintage-inspired
    timepieces using bronze.

    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. And since 2007, Montblanc has been exploring Minerva's heritage, finding inspiration in historical functions, mechanics and design codes.

    The resulting timepieces capture all the spirit of the past in a modern way. The Montblanc 1858 Collection continues this journey by reinterpreting the famous Minerva chronographs from the 1930s, with distinct designs and exceptional mechanics that traverse time.

    Turning to bronze

    The vintage style of the Montblanc 1858 Collection has been further enhanced by the introduction of bronze—a first for the Maison. Through this choice of metal, Montblanc combines traditional Swiss artisanal watchmaking with a genuine material from watch-making history. Bronze complements both the colours of the dials and the antique-style straps with its warm sheen, unifying all the elements for a true vintage design. For the first time in the watchmaking industry, bronze is coupled with steel for two new models, and it results in a bicolour, bi-material combination that brings out the best of vintage design.

    Special 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. The subtle changing colour of the case further enriches the vintage appeal of each timepiece.

    Three new bronze versions make up the Collection—a Montblanc 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter Limited Edition 100, a Montblanc 1858 Automatic Dual Time and a Montblanc 1858 Automatic timepiece.

    Design codes

    The historical design codes taken from the original 1930s Minerva chronograph include large cathedral hands, with their cloisonné design filled with beige Super-LumiNova®, luminescent Arabic numerals, vintage shaped crowns and classic minute railway tracks that encircle the dials. Other vintage codes include the original Montblanc logo from the 1930s era with its historical font and emblem of the Mont Blanc Mountain in the centre, along with new cognac coloured calfskin and alligator straps that have been given an aged look by the artisans at the Montblanc Pelletteria in Florence.

    Montblanc 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter Limited Edition 100

    The 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter Limited Edition 100 showcases a vintage style—from the design of the case, to the movement, strap and details on the dial. The timepiece comes with a champagne dial that has a sunray finishing to match the bronze colour of the case. This combination of colours and finishing gives a monochrome and mono-material aspect to the timepiece, accentuating the volume of the timepiece and drawing attention to the details, such as the historic cathedral-shaped hands and beige Super-LumiNova® markings that accentuate the vintage style while also providing excellent readability at night.

    This limited edition is housed in a 44mm full satinated bronze case with a bronze coloured titanium case back (to avoid allergies) and polished bezel for increased depth. Other noteworthy features include a cognac alligator leather strap that, like all the straps in the 1858 Collection, have been crafted at the Montblanc Pelletteria in Florence, and feature a satinated bronze plated buckle that complement the overall design.

    At the heart of the timepiece lies a traditional manual monopusher chronograph movement, the calibre MB M16.29, with a column wheel mechanism, horizontal coupling, chronograph bridge in a "V" shape, a large screwed balance wheel vibrating at a frequency of 18,000 semi oscillations per hour and a power reserve of 50 hours.

    This in-house chronograph has been entirely handcrafted at the Montblanc Manufacture in Villeret and is characterized by an exceptional finishing. Designed in a large "pocket watch" style, thecalibre MB M16.29 has been inspired by the original calibre 17.29 designed for pocket watches and wristwatches in the 1930s. This new version uses almost the same shape of components as the calibre 17.29 , but features different finishings, such as inside angles, Côtes de Genève stripes and circular graining. For the first time, the calibre MB M16.29 bears red gold-coloured components that offer a totally new look and that perfectly match the bronze material and vintage appeal of the timepiece, while also reinforcing its monochrome aspect. As with all the Minerva calibres, one of the movement’s components is shaped into the form of the Minerva arrow to pay tribute to the Manufacture's heritage.

    The chronograph indications are displayed via a central chronograph seconds hand and a chronograph minute counter at three o'clock. Other indications on the dial include a tachymeter scale that runs around the dial and a small seconds’ subdial at nine o'clock. The MB M16.29 is a chronograph that adheres to the true spirit of fine watchmaking.
