Product Details

Reinterpreting Minerva’s historical Rally Timer, Montblanc presents an innovative and versatile timepiece strictly limited to 100 pieces. It can be used in different ways, as it can be changed from a wristwatch into a pocket watch or dashboard clock. The manufacture calibre MB M16.29 with a monopusher chronograph was inspired by the original Minerva calibre 17-29 from the 1930s, offering handcrafted fine watchmaking finishes such as chamfered angles and “Côtes de Genève” or circular graining decorations. As on the famous Minerva Rally Timer, the chronograph’s 30-minute counter at 12 o’clock is vertically aligned with the small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock. With a tip sculpted after the Minerva arrow, the red chronograph seconds hand runs in central position along a tachymeter scale, which can be used to calculate speeds over fixed distances. The historical Arabic numerals and the precise minuterie with red accents at five-minute markings were also modelled after its predecessor. With the same dimensions as its famous predecessor, the satinated titanium case with knurled finishing and DLC coating on the flank boasts an unusually large diameter of 50 mm. For utmost reliability and performance, the timepiece has been rigorously tested by the Montblanc Laboratory Test 500.
