Montblanc’s 1858 watches now come in new khaki green and bronze avatars


After gaining much popularity over the years, Montblanc’s 1858 line is all to expand with three new bronze covered and Khaki green editions. Inspired by “the spirit of the great outdoors,” the novel entrants include classic 1858 automatic versions, namely – The Montblanc 1858 Automatic, Montblanc 1858 Automatic Chronograph and Montblanc 1858 Geosphere.

Each of the timepieces feature a vintage- looking bronze case enriched with aluminum that plays an ultimate ode to the marquee’s ongoing pursuit for excellence. Polished and satin-finished, the bronze cases further feature slim beveled horns along with a case back that is crafted from titanium and coated in a complimenting bronze color. On the other hand, the new Khaki green impalement on the watches denote a connection to nature while also reinterpreting the Minerva pocket watches and chronographs from the 1920s and 1930s.

Other exquisite features in the new Montblanc editions include sapphire crystal glass boxes that highlight the vintage look of each watch, high-quality woven “NATO” straps as well as case backs engraved with the emblematic Mont Blanc mountain, a compass and two crossed ice pick-axes. While the Montblanc Automatic limited-edition retails at $3050, the Montblanc 1858 Automatic Chronograph and Montblanc 1858 Geosphere come in at a heavier tag of $5000 and $6500 each, a price you’d expect to pay for pretty much any Montblanc special edition timepiece. If green is your color, the new Montblanc1858 line is for you to check out!
