The Montblanc 1858 Pocket Watch Limited Edition 100 honors the 160th anniversary of Minerva with its new manufacture Caliber MB M16.24, a beautifully hand-crafted monopusher movement with the iconic V-shaped bridge and Minerva arrow, directly inspired by the historic Minerva monophuser chronograph Caliber 17.29 for pocket watches. Designed for mountain explorers, this ultimate and versatile timepiece offers the unique opportunity to appreciate time in different ways while discovering new adventures. The pocket watch can be positioned on a table with a stand or combined with a built-in compass that can be accessed by opening it up to lay flat on a map for planning adventures. The back of the compass features an engraving of the four cardinal points, which are enhanced with SuperLumiNova®. Over 50 elements compose the versatile and adaptable case. It can be transformed into a wristwatch that can be safely worn on the forearm during explorations or comfortably held in hand, thanks to a unique brown Sfumato aged calfskin strap with two pin buckles and a cover. The 60 mm pocket watch is made of grade-five titanium and combines polished and satin finishes. It features a unique red central hand coated with SuperLumiNova® indicating the time on a 24-hour scale and a dedicated minute track. The dial offers high readability and performance during the day and at night. It is crafted from Dumortierite stone, named after famed French explorer Eugène Dumortier, who discovered it in the Alps mountain chain in 1881. This natural mineral gives the dial a unique blue luster.
