The Montblanc 1858 Automatic Chronograph combines pure aesthetics with functionality and boasts the precision of chronographic functions. As a first, the Montblanc 1858 Automatic Chronograph introduces bi-pushers to the line to activate the chronograph. Its 42 mm case has undergone both polished and satin finishing and comes with a sapphire crystal glass box, highlighting the robustness and contemporary look of the watch. Engraved on the case back are a compass, two crossed ice pickaxes and the emblematic Mont Blanc mountain – the iconic peak that has inspired the Maison since its founding. The smoked champagne-coloured dial with sunray finishing provides an elegant backdrop for the bi-compass counters positioned at 3 and 9 o’clock, reminiscent of Minerva’s historic chronographs. The metal changes its appearance over time. As a result, each case develops a subtle and unique patina that reflects the wearer's habits.
