Famous German manufacturer of writing instruments, watches, jewelry, and leather goods Montblanc celebrates 157 years of Minerva’s heritage by launching the 1858 collection. Acquired by Montblanc in 2006, Minerva Manufacture is known for producing precise chronographs once used in the battlefields of World War I and II, and was founded in 1858. Inspired by the limited 1930s Minerva design of 100 pieces, the new Montblanc 1858 collection features four handcrafted new watches: a single-button chronograph in pink gold and three versions of a stainless-steel watch with subsidiary seconds. While the manually-wound, vintage-inspired timepieces bring the nostalgic feeling of a forgotten era, they manage to remain perfectly contemporary.
