The legendary professional Minerva watches from the 1920s and 1930s were conceived for military use and exploration due to its precise, legible, and robust structure.
Inspired by these historic pieces, the Montblanc 1858 product line reinvents time with three new editions that capture the spirit of the great outdoors in an elegant pairing of green and bronze, namely Montblanc 1858 Automatic, Montblanc 1858 Automatic Chronograph, and Montblanc 1858 Geosphere.

For legibility and design, the brand-new khaki-green dials contrast with historical luminescent cathedral-shaped hands with a “cloisonné” design that has been slightly domed for one of the finest finishes.
