Inspired by classic Minerva wristwatches from the 1940s and 50s, Montblanc channels a neo-dandy style in three novelties within its Heritage product line.

Paying tribute to historical and classic Minerva wristwatches from the 1940s and 1950s, the Heritage timepieces combine the elegance of watchmaking past with today’s bold design codes. The new models feature fully polished 40mm and 42mm cases, bent horns with facets, and are fitted with sapphire crystal glass boxes for an elegant vintage look. Reminiscent of the neo-dandy style, special attention has been paid to dials with distinctive colours, such as salmon, tobacco-brown, British-racing-green.

Montblanc Heritage Manufacture Pulsograph Limited Edition 100 Pieces

The highlight of the Maison’s product line is the Heritage Pulsograph Limited Edition 100, a timepiece inspired by what collectors call the ‘doctor’s watches’, that were used by doctors in the past to check a patient’s heart rate. Following the launch of the Montblanc Heritage Pulsograph Limited Edition with a salmon-coloured dial, the Maison is now unveiling a brand-new model in an 18 K rose gold 40mm case with a distinctive smoked tobacco-brown dial and matching Sfumato alligator strap, reinforcing the trendy vintage style. On the case back, the sapphire crystal reveals the high level of hand finishing of the Montblanc Manufacture monopusher chronograph Calibre MB M13.21. This high-end movement is composed of a large balance wheel with 18 screws that beats at the traditional frequency of 18,000 A/H, a column wheel and horizontal coupling, the iconic V-shaped chronograph bridge whose design was patented in 1912, and the emblematic hand-decorated Minerva arrow. The timepiece comes with a matching tobacco-brown Sfumato alligator strap, completing the overall vintage design.

Joining the Heritage product line is this new edition in stainless steel with a salmon-coloured dial. The Heritage Monopusher Chronograph features the latest chronograph design with a domed, salmon-coloured dial with black rhodium-coated Arabic numerals and dots for indexes. This timepiece comes in a 42mm stainless steel case with polished and satin-finishes, curved horns, a domed sapphire glass box, and the distinctive Minerva Manufacture embossing on the case back. The timepiece is completed with a matching grey Sfumato alligator strap from the Pelletteria in Florence, Italy.
