Montblanc’s new Heritage watches are inspired by the classic Minerva timepieces from the 40s and ’50s

Montblanc has unveiled three new retro-themed watches within its Heritage product line that are inspired by Minerva classic wristwatches from the 1940s and ‘50s. As an ode to the watchmaker’s scintillating past, all three timepieces feature classic design elements and colors. First of them is the Montblanc Heritage Pulsograph which is limited to only 100 examples. Initially created for doctors, the watch comes with the function to check the heartbeat and now has become quite popular with watch collectors. The new Heritage Pulsograph replaces the salmon-colored dial of the previous version with a domed smoked tobacco-brown lacquer dial. The 40mm case is in 18-karat rose gold and there’s a matching Sfumato alligator strap. It is priced at $33,000.

Next up is the Montblanc Heritage Monopusher Chronograph which comes with a stainless steel case measuring 42mm and salmon-colored dial. It features black Arabic and dot indices, rhodium-coated hour and minute dauphine hands and blues steel baton hands for the seconds hand and sub-registers. It is powered by Sellita SW 510 movement and it’s absolutely amazing that you get a monopusher complication for just $4,950. Third and the last timepiece is the Heritage Automatic. It features an 18k yellow gold case with lacquered racing green dial and matching Sfumato alligator strap. It is powered by the Calibre MB 24.27 movement with a 42-hour power reserve and can be yours for $8,900.
