In the spirit of mountain exploration, Montblanc reinterprets an historical Minerva military monopusher chronograph from the 1930’s with the one-of-a kind 1858 Split Second Chronograph Only Watch 2019.
“The timepiece is a fantastic chronograph complication quite rare and incredibly rooted into the story of Minerva.
This execution inside the 1858 product line represents the state of the art of our high-end hand-made hand-finished watchmaking offer” says Davide Cerrato, Montblanc Managing Director Watch Division.
To join forces with Only Watch 2019, a well-known international biennial charity auction of high-end timepieces that will take place in Geneva on Nov. 9th, Montblanc is pleased to donate the 1858 Split Second Chronograph Only Watch 2019 which combines titanium and a natural stone, the blue agate.
We are honoured to be part of this amazing charity event, that stands up for such a special cause, uniting the world’s leading watchmakers, says Nicolas Baretzki, Montblanc CEO. The biennial charity auction established itself as a celebration of watchmaking traditions and expertise, giving collectors and connoisseurs the opportunity to own a truly unique watch, while supporting this honourable cause.
