Referencing the year in which Minerva was founded, Montblanc’s new 1858 Collection comprises four limited-edition watches: a single-button chronograph in rose gold, and a ‘Small Second’ stainless-steel time-only model, available with either a bracelet, or two different leather straps (calfskin or alligator). Limited to 100 pieces, the single-button model – which is actuated by the pushdown crown – is particularly interesting, utilising a hand-wound movement designed in the spirit of those found in Minerva’s revered chronographs from the 1930s, and proudly displayed through a sapphire-crystal exhibition case back.
