Direct from the SIHH: Montblanc 1858 Split Seconds Bronze Case.

Jan 22, 2019,06:43 AM

I will review this 1858 Double Split, but it is one of my love affair from the SIHH. 

A super nice movement, a cool dial. I would have just preferred a steel or titanium case. 

Rattrapante! There aren't so many which are fine, in the watch universe! 

More to come...

Excellent piece!

Just excellent. Beautiful movement. Super reasonable price point. Best movement finishing in the world! Even that bronze. It's like wood in a wine, instantly makes the wine taste more expensive!

Good analogy! ;) [nt]

Usually a welcome fragrance in a wine! Thank you!

Two things

I’d rather see this in say, titanium. And a smaller diameter example 40 or 41mm.

Merci, mj23. [nt]

Look forward to the review

The heft of this model will restrict its audience, but the great price should coerce those who are on the fence. Like many here, I am intrigued that the rattrapante and the salmon dial chronograph are so closely priced.

You seem to have the mysterious power to make it happen, Nico! 😉

You were hoping for a rattrapante and we got it, now I hope a steel or titanium version join the collection as well 🤞🏻

Really looking forward to your review

i anguished over buying the split seconds or the bronze salmond dial 1858 but the salmond dial won out, for now...Jim
