Montblanc GPHG 2016

Montblanc wins the chronograph prize with the 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter Limited Edition 100.

For the past 16 years, the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève has been annually celebrating the 12th Art and providing an international audience with the opportunity to follow trends and innovations. It aims, in a spirit of sharing and cooperation, to yearly highlight and reward high quality creations in order to nurture the advancement of the watchmaking art and contribute to promoting the watch world globally.

The prize in the chronograph category pays tribute to the Minerva Manufacture’s extraordinary heritage founded in 1858 and who is known as an exclusive workshop that produced high-quality instruments for measuring brief intervals of time with remarkable precision.

Montblanc 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter Blue Limited Edition 100

Montblanc’s 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter Blue Limited Edition 100 celebrates both traditional Swiss artisanal watchmaking and the rich heritage of Montblanc’s Villeret Manufacture, but offers a contemporary twist to the past with a large 44 mm stainless steel case with slightly enlarged lugs, to keep the proportions of the case the same. The addition of a deep blue dial with a tachymetric scale for measuring speeds over distance, along with a matching blue alligator strap, also contribute to reinforcing the vintage look of this historical timepiece.

Under the dial, Montblanc has equipped the 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter Blue Limited Edition 100 with its monopusher chronograph with column wheel and horizontal disc clutch that fills the whole 44 mm case.
