HERITAGE MANUFACTURE PULSOGRAPH LIMITED EDITION & HERITAGE MONOPUSHER CHRONOGRAPH
THE GREAT CLASSIC IN COLOR
The Heritage collection, inspired by the classic watches created by Minerva over 50 years ago, has just grown, welcoming two new monopusher chronographs, the first automatic and the second hand-wound.
Montblanc’s well-named Heritage collection, worthy successor to the classic watches created by Minerva back in the middle of the 20th century, welcomes two monopusher chronographs on board. These timepieces with their timeless style are designed for any woman or man sensitive to fine materials and the elegance of their silhouette. Both pieces host a dial with a rather identical overall look with its sunray-brushed finish, its sandblasted ring featuring dot-style indexes and relief-displayed Arabic numerals hovered over by Dauphine-shaped hour and minute hands.
The Heritage Manufacture Pulsograph Limited Edition, available in just 100 pieces, reiterates the same stylistic codes as the “doctor’s watch” version unveiled at the 2019 SIHH, though rose gold is now center staged on the 40 mm-diameter case instead of steel and the salmon-pink color has been replaced by a warm Havana brown on the dial edged with a golden-yellow-hued Pulsograph scale. The watch, still driven by the hand-wound MB M13.21 caliber, displays the hours and minutes in the center and the small seconds at 9 o’clock whilst the chronograph controlled by a monopusher at 2 o’clock is measured via the large direct-drive and minute totalizer at 3 o’clock. This sophisticated ensemble is set off by a caramel-colored Sfumato alligator strap clasped by a rose gold ardillon buckle.
Given the great success of its salmon-pink dial last year, Montblanc has embraced it in its Heritage Monopusher Chronograph model powered by the automatic MB 25.12 caliber. This movement, which delivers 48 hours of power reserve, nestles in a 42-mm diameter steel case whose crown at 3 o’clock incorporates the pusher which activates the chronograph. This watch is worn on a gray Sfumato alligator strap attached by a steel folding clasp.
Price: CHF4,700 (Monopusher Chronograph) – CHF35,000 (Pulsograph)
