MONTBLANC 1858 CHRONOGRAPH TACHYMETER

Golf Asia - - LUXE TIMEPIECES -

Pay­ing trib­ute to the iconic Min­erva chrono­graphs from the 1930s, the Montblanc 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter Lim­ited Edi­tion 100 cap­tures the spirit of Montblanc’s past in a con­tem­po­rary vin­tage way with a 44mm case made of bronze. Par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion has been paid to re­search­ing the per­fect al­loy of bronze that will evolve with its owner by de­vel­op­ing its own unique, uni­form and at­trac­tive patina over the years. For the first time, the time­piece comes with a retro-vin­tage dial in salmon-colour fea­tur­ing a sun­ray fin­ish­ing rem­i­nis­cent of his­tor­i­cal Min­erva time­pieces that had di­als of this dis­tinc­tive colour. At the heart of the time­piece lies the tra­di­tional man­ual mono­pusher chronograph, the MB M16.29, with a col­umn wheel mech­a­nism, hor­i­zon­tal cou­pling, chronograph bridge in a "V" shape and a large screwed bal­ance wheel with a fre­quency of 18,000 semi os­cil­la­tions per hour.
