Editor's Notes

Manufactured in a limited run of just 100, this watch is part of Montblanc's '1858' collection that reinterprets the revered Minerva chronographs from the 1930s – now a pedigree sitting within the German luxury marque’s Swiss-Jura watchmaking enterprise. The vintage-style bronze case is a first for the brand, and it houses a champagne dial with a sunray finish and historical 'cathedral' hands – the decorative cloisonné design on the two markers is filled with Super-LumiNova® for exceptional readability. The real fireworks are on the flip side, however: the hand-finished and highly architectural mechanics that came to define Minerva’s hand-wound chronographs of the mid-20th century.

We offer a two-year warranty for all working parts and manufacturing faults for luxury watches. For more information, contact one of our experts by emailing
