The MontBlanc 1858 watch collection adds another string to this company’s bow. The stunning family of watches is crafted in the heart of Switzerland’s thriving haute horlogerie nerve centre, in Villeret and Le Locle. Here the designers put their heart and soul into creating captivating timekeepers for those who can appreciate handmade beauty at its very finest. No corner is left upturned when it comes to developing the prestigious MontBlanc 1858 watch.
MontBlanc 1858 watches express the brand’s courageous streak and their nerve to venture forth into territories unknown. Each collection developed by MontBlanc is unique and differs from the last. The 1858 watches are a celebratory nod to the watchmaker’s 175th birthday. The anniversary collection consists of distinct features; the leaf shaped central hands, jet black dials and perfectly round cases equipped with beautifully polished bezels. The MontBlanc 1858 watches collection provides the investor an opportunity to wear something a little more traditional, yet still get the same satisfaction out of the brand’s unwavering dedication to precision.
The MontBlanc 1858 watch collection includes the small seconds hand wound variation. The timepieces are set on sumptuous black dials and fitted with a neat and highly legible small seconds sub-dial, positioned at the 6 o’clock location. The cathedral shaped hands which sweep over the circumference of the dial with a certain gracefulness, team extraordinarily well with bold Arabic numerals in white - both features of which have been coated with a luminous treatment to provide the wearer crisp information throughout the night, as well as those situations where lighting is most compromised.
These MontBlanc 1858 watches are also decorated with vintage-style MontBlanc lettering which has been applied underneath the 12 o’clock location - acting as a sturdy reminder of the quality and precision underscored within each and every model of this iconic collection. The self winding movement sought for these striking MontBlanc 1858 watches, is renowned for its stamina, its robustness and its reliability. The design of the central hour and minute hands help to maximise the space on the dial, giving full attention to the small seconds feature, the hour ring and a detailed minute track which surrounds it. To add to its already stunning vintage appeal, we here at Berry’s offer the brown leather strap variation. This finish adds character and an olde-worlde feel to the design, with cream contrast stitching around the edges and a classic polished stainless steel buckle to fasten with.
Personality wise, MontBlanc 1858 watches are discreet and unimposing. Designed with an understated beauty, they work well as a day-to-day wristwatch –the classic black dial fitted with a soft leather strap serving as a casual yet smart timepiece that will compliment any attire. On the other hand, those MontBlanc 1858 watches whom have been finished with a stunning stainless steel mesh bracelet, have the ability to transform a suit into something much more elegant. Perfect for evening occasions, that all-important interview, or a professional office meeting - the MontBlanc 1858 watch for men, can certainly hold its own during those more sophisticated requirements.
