This year, the Montblanc 1858 series launches a new watch with the spirit of mountain adventure as the soul and the khaki green tone. The Montblanc new 1858 series inherits the classic soul with modern aesthetic characteristics, echoing the 20th and 30th century ‘S pocket watch and chronograph. (Watch model: U0119907).
The new 1858 series includes a new World Time watch, a chronograph, and two self-winding watches. These two self-winding watches have a bronze case with a green dial or a stainless steel case with a black dial. In these watches, we can see Montblanc’s personality style, not only in appearance but also in performance.
Montblanc’s new 1858 series self-winding watch has a stainless steel case with a size of 40 mm. The front and sides are polished with a brushed process, which is full of the unique texture of metal, showing a calm and low-key visual effect. Seen from the side, the round box-shaped convex sapphire crystal glass has a retro feel. The case naturally extends to the lugs and exhibits a certain degree of bending. This design conforms to ergonomic settings and can better fit the wrist when worn.
The grooved crown imitating the antique timepiece is engraved with a Montblanc special logo, which can be recognized at a glance, highlighting the brand’s overall aesthetic style.
The newcomer watch that features a stainless steel case is paired with a black dial, coated with beige Arabic numerals and the cloisonné-style cathedral hands that complement each other in a very historic style. Montblanc’s classic rail-type minute scale is also applied to the dial. The 12 o’clock position uses the trademark style used by the brand in the 1930s: the text is written in historical fonts and the Mont Blanc logo.
The bronze case version of the watch is paired with a khaki green NATO braided strap, and this watch uses a khaki green calfskin strap and pin buckle, which is consistent with the style of the watch, showing a timeless charm.
The watch has received the “Montblanc Lab 500 Hour Quality Test” and has passed special tests under various extreme conditions. It has a water resistance of 100 meters. The MB 24.15 self-winding movement is equipped with a flat balance spring, which provides a power reserve of 38 hours. The stainless steel case back is engraved with the Mont Blanc mountain pattern, a compass decorated with Montblanc’s classic logo in the center, and two ice axes, highlighting the mountain adventure spirit.
