Inspired by the Montblanc 1858 collection

People tend to reinterpret the retro trend to suit the tastes of the current generation, and people call it'Neutro'. This quaint new word combining New and Retro is also a trend that has dominated the replica watches industry over the years. The trend of Neutro is swaying in the background of the success of the Montblanc 1858 collection that modernly unleashes the heritage of Minerva, the prestigious manufactory of the Swiss Jura Mountains.

Inspired by design inspired by Minerva's historic chronograph watch from the 1920s and 30s, several interesting new products have been added to the Montblanc 1858 collection this year. Among them, the Montblanc 1858 Monopusher Chronograph is remarkable in that it is the first automatic (automatic) monopusher chronograph lineup introduced in the 1858 collection. Until now, the monopusher chronograph has been equipped with a manual caliber that reproduces Minerva's historic movement without exception. Finally, the automatic monopusher chronograph family was created, which eliminates the need to wind up by hand.

The appearance of the automatic monopusher chronograph lineup in the 1858 collection was well-predicted. Because last year, we already launched an automatic mono-pusher chronograph lineup through the Heritage collection. Heritage is a new collection of classic lines inspired by the original Minerva watch from the 1940s and 50s, and although it has a clear difference in appearance from 1858, it shares the vintage design code that modernly reinterprets Minerva's DNA. Some parts are similar. In addition, the brand's desire to showcase a new automatic monopusher chronograph movement, which was modified by itself, through various lineups may have been reflected.

As a result, the Montblanc 1858 collection meets the automatic monopusher chronograph, creating great synergy. By following the familiar design code through the other 1858 lineup, the vintage elements from the dial to the strap are more prominently blended, making it a product that is faithful to the trend of sophistication but chic. One might be wondering why Montblanc launched the automatic monopusher chronograph, and why it was so obsessed with the monopusher chronograph (!?). However, looking back at the original chronograph timepieces that made Minerva famous in the mid-20th century, the monopusher method prevailed. When Willy Breitling introduced the world's first watch with a double push piece in 1934, modern chronograph fake watches became the standard, but Minerva continued to use the original mono pusher method until the 1950s. Adhered to. Therefore, the monopushor chronograph became one of the important dip elements in constructing the current collection by rediscovering the legacy of the time.
