The 1858 collection is inspired by the heritage of Minerva, one of the most specialized and renowned Swiss manufactures in the watch sector. With this collection Montblanc revives the spirit of the legendary watches that Minerva has been making since 1858, adding a new, contemporary and vintage touch at the same time. Tradition lives on thanks to the fluted crown with a coaxial button reminiscent of the first examples made, as well as the elegant dial with the large luminescent white Arabic numerals and the "chemin de fer" small parts. The small seconds at 6 o'clock, the retro Montblanc emblem and the large "cathedral" hands with cloisonné design coated with white Super-LumiNova® are also faithful to the original design. The contemporaneity is reflected in the large 44 mm stainless steel case, with dark blue dial and blue alligator strap, which give a modern touch to the vintage look.
