Taking vintage inspiration to new heights, Montblanc’s Minerva-inspired 1858 Split Second Chronograph deftly blends technical prowess and retro elegance. Inspired by the military chronographs of the 1920s and ‘30s made by Minerva (a legendary brand now owned by Montblanc), the monopusher chronograph features a distinctive dial in rich blue Grand Feu enamel with bright orange accents. It is equipped with a tachymeter scale for measuring speed and a telemeter scale to measure distance. The complex split-second chronograph function allows the owner to measure multiple events with the same starting time but different ending times. The 286-part manually wound MB M16.31 chronograph boasts an in-house-made hairspring (something few watch brands build themselves). Just 100 pieces will be made.
