SIHH 2018: Montblanc Celebrates 160 Years

Minerva’s heritage

Montblanc unveiled a huge collection, though much of the attention was centred on the 160th anniversary of the Minerva manufacture.

The 1858 collection is inspired by Minerva’s heritage. Key pieces for 2018 include the 1858 Geosphere North & South Hemisphere and the 1858 Mono Pusher Chronograph in an alluring green colourway.

We were also enamoured by a pocket watch exploration instrument with blue Dumortierite dial. The mineral is new to watchmaking. Other highlights: a titanium pocket watch with black obsidian dial; the Star Legacy Suspended Exo Tourbillon; the TimeWalker Manufacture Chronograph with panda dial; and the Rally Timer (view the 2016 version here) with reverse panda dial.

We’ll be posting daily roundups of SIHH throughout the week, along with in-depth analyses later on in the month, so stay tuned. In the mean time, follow us on Instagram and watch our InstaStories for the latest happenings at SIHH.
