This year, Montblanc’s launching a completely new bronze-cased chronograph within the 1858 Collection: the 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter Exclusive Edition. This wrist watch can be a mono-pusher chronograph in the 44mm x 13.15mm bronze situation.
The movement is Replica Montblanc Manufacture caliber MB M16.29, which is using the original Minerva caliber 17.29 pocket chronograph caliber within the 1930s. The movement is 38.4mm x 6.3mm (then one factor that isn’t to complain about using this watch could be the movement not fitting the problem). There’s a 50 hour power reserve she’s hands-wound (clearly) and beats inside a classic pocket watch frequency of 18,000 vph. The over-coil balance spring features a in past statistics correct Phillips terminal curve (Edouard Phillips will be a French math wizzard and physicist, who needed the empirical success of Breguet’s over-coil balance spring invention and employ it a great theoretical footing inside the mid-1800s).
There are many eye chocolate here, as you would expect. One especially nice touch could be the superbly finished stud the terminal coil in the balance spring is attached, that’s red gold plated, with beveled edges, beautiful sharp corners, plus a brush finished upper surface. It’s a small detail but so nicely attempted it should be referred to as out. This amount of concentrate on detail within this small, easily overlooked part, is what distinguishes excellent watchmaking from just excellent, which is absent in lots of watches where it shouldn’t be.
The problem-back (such since it is) is not really bronze it’s titanium getting a bronze colored coating (titanium nit-ride, possibly, that is titled color which is very scratch resistant, additionally to corrosion resistant) and so the watch doesn’t turn your wrist echo-friendly.
