Montblanc Montblanc 1858 Pocket Watch Limited Edition 100

Designed for mountain explorers, this ultimate and versatile timepiece also offers a compass.

The Montblanc 1858 Pocket Watch Limited Edition 100 honours the 160th anniversary of the Minerva Manufacture and is inspired by its heritage. It offers the unique opportunity to appreciate the time in different ways while exploring.

The pocket watch can be positioned on a table with a stand or combined with an in-built compass that can be accessed by opening it up to lay flat on a map for planning adventures. Reminiscent of the first historical wristwatches developed by Minerva, the pocket watch can also be transformed into a wristwatch thanks to a unique brown Sfumato aged calfskin strap with two pin buckles, which allows the watch to be worn on the forearm safely during exploration. Lastly, the timepiece can be held in the hand thanks to a dedicated brown Sfumato aged calf strap equipped with a cover.

Over 50 elements make up the versatile and adaptable 40mm case, water-resistant to 30 m, made of grade-two titanium and combining polished and satin finishing. Special attention has been paid to the dial to offer excellent readability and performance during the day and night. It is crafted from Dumortierite stone, a natural blue mineral. The signature design details of the Montblanc 1858 collection are all present, including beige SuperLumiNova® Arabic numerals, indexes and hands; vintage fluted crown with monopusher chronograph and the historic Montblanc logo. The timepiece readings include a 30-minute counter at 12 o'clock (24 o’clock on this dial), a small second counter at 6 o'clock (12 o’clock on this dial), which are directly cut into the Dumortierite stone, as well as a central white chronograph second hand and a pulsometer scale engraved on the bezel. This new version features a unique red central hand coated with SuperLumiNova® indicating the time on a 24-hour scale on a dedicated minute-track. The back of the compass features an engraving of the four cardinal points which are enhanced with SuperLumiNova®.

It offers a 50-hour  power reserve and its beautiful decoration includes a rhodium-coated German silver plate and edges, with circular graining on both sides, hand-chamfered edges and “Côtes de Genève”.
