Accurate, easy-to-read and robust legendary professional Minerva watches were devised for land, naval and air forces and exploration agencies around the world. Inspired by these historic watches, the Montblanc 1858 Product Line pays tribute to the great heritage of Minerva Manufacture. The 'Montblanc 1858 Split Second Chronograph Only Watch 2 0 1 9' is a very rare chronograph complication and is the oldest and most advanced hand-crafted crystal at the same time. It is also the crystal of watchmaking's cutting-edge technology and faithfully recreates the legend of Minerva, ”says David Cheratto, director of the Montblanc watch division. The spirit of mountain exploration has been reinterpreted in the 1930s historic Minerva military mono pusher chronograph, making each element a unique piece that acts as a collector's droop. The 44 mm diameter case uses Montblanc's first grade 2 titanium. The beauty of the dial with the blue natural stone agart is complemented by the blue sfumato alligator strap and the Montblanc Manufacture Monopusher Chronograph Caliber MB M16.31.
This one-point watch, with the original Minerva timepiece, has a telemeter scale around the dial (a function that calculates the distance using the speed difference between light and sound such as lightning). Colimason (spiral type) tachymeter (function to measure approximate average speed by measuring the time within 60 seconds when traveling a distance of 1 km) The scale is housed in the center of the dial and the chronograph scale around the dial So you can measure up to 3 minutes instead of 1 minute as before. In addition to these features, Montblanc has developed the “Rattrapante” (split second) complication. A complex crafted chronograph complication that can be timed with two hands, measuring intermediate time without interrupting continuous measurement of longer elapsed times. As with the timepieces of the past with this function, “Rattrapante” can be seen through the sapphire glass on the case back.
This watch has a historic design code inspired by the original 1930s Minerva chronograph, with classic white Super-LumiNova®, luminalized Arabic numerals and cathedral hands. It brings a nice impression. The Montblanc mountain emblem is centrally located, and the classic font of the 1930s Montblanc logo further enhances the classic feel. To maximize visibility, the chronograph display has a black rhodium finish on the center second hand and a red second on the spirit seconds hand and 3 o'clock. Montblanc Manufacture Mono Pusher Chronograph Caliber MB M16.31, which can be viewed from the case back, has two column wheels, a horizontal coupling, a power reserve of about 50 hours, and a large chilled screw that beats with the old-fashioned 18,000 vibrations. Villeret Montblanc Manufacture is one of the rare Maisons with know-how to produce Hizegenmai in-house. This caliber is based on the Minerva caliber 17.29, which was developed in the 1930s and was used in both watches and pocket watches. You can enjoy careful manual finishing such as Côtes de Genève, chamfering, and circular grains, and at the same time, the old-fashioned Minerbar Arrow and the V-shaped chronograph bridge that received a design patent in 1912 Detail is a feature.
