Montblanc 1858 monopusher chrono green dial

Mar 13, 2021,00:27 AM

Dear All,
Finally pulled the trigger to acquire this beautiful MB-Minerva 40mm monopusher chrono today.
I first came across this beauty and met the MB boutique manager back in 2018, however I couldn’t make up my mind to get it.
We kept in touch and I was kindly invited by the manager to attend various local events of MB, which I was impresssed.
When I finally decided to acquire it, obviously all 100 pieces had been sold out, either in boutique or AD.
Somehow the Manager contacted me that one remaining piece is available from the manufacture, and I am pleasantly surprised to find out the LE number matches a very special year of me, the year I graduated.
The final outcome is obvious, it’s on my wrist now.

May I ask the fellow owner of this time piece, does it have stop-second function? As mine doesn’t, and I believe it should be normal for an old designed caliber likes this Minerva 13.21. But I couldn’t find this info on its user manual and elsewhere.

Thank you for your kind input.

Best, Henry

Agree, all those paper works are really primitive. But as you said the watch with the devil tail chronograph caliber inside is the only thing that matters.

The tactile feeing of activating, stopping and resetting of chronograph is also top-notch, very gentle yet well defined, on par with 5270. One more lume shot. ...  

Yes, this winding is so buttery

very different experience to the large caliber 16.29

and ask the manager for the black Montblanc customer service box

it is perfect to store the watch - they use it for sending the watches to Suisse

They have just now published a new edition of the user manual

including all movements of all lines and also with the 13.21 - check with your boutique manager and they can order one for sure

The caliber 13.18 has got the hacking seconds

The killer movement.

This one was presented to me in Zurich

 By: penfriend : March 13th, 2021-08:01
in January 2018 and i was intrigued. When I finally wanted one at the end of 2018 they were sold out at all boutiques in Europe and I was only able to get the last one available at an European AD... This green Minerva 1858 was a huge success for Montblanc... 

Huge Congrats, thats one beautiful watch

Congrats Henry! Your 1858 monopusher has one of the nicest green in any watches I have seen.

Add the gorgeous 13.21 to the mix and you have a winning combination. One of the best chronograph in the market now. Wear it in the best of health!

Thank you, Aaron. My love is growing on this olive green dial.

The olive green dial/ strap, stainless steel case and the vintage style numerals all match perfectly for this military themed hand winding chronograph. It reminds me the military olive green Leica M3 camera. Best, Henry Photo credits: ...  

Yes, they match nicely. The longer I wear it and observe in near distance, the more refined I find this beauty is.

It will probably stay on my wrist for quite some time.......
