Glad to have some hands on time with the red hot Montblanc 1858 Split Second Chronograph LE 8.
This is a 44mm vintage style titanium mono-pusher, rattrapante chronograph which is inspired by 20th century chronographs. It features a rather interesting and gorgeous smoked red gradient dial with telemeter as the outer track and snail-shaped tachymeter in the centre. The movement here is the large MB M16.31 which is derived from a pocket watch movement. Needless to say, it is a large and beautiful one!
I definitely feel that this is a watch with strong presence that stands out on the wrist. I personally prefer it over the blue enamel version.
