Live from SIHH 2019 – Nicolas Baretzki of Montblanc

Nicolas Baretzki, CEO of Montblanc, portrays 2019 as a year that “will complete a section we began writing in 2015”. Alluding to the full mix of Montblanc and Minerva, the brand will be “reworking all the product offerings from a Minerva approach”.

Focusing on two product offerings, the Heritage Collection motivated by Minverva chronographs from the 1940s and 1950s, and the 1858 assortment, these are the features Baretzki imparts to us:

  • Designed to encapsulate Minverva’s exploration watches of the 1920s and 1930s, the 1858 Geosphere Limited Edition includes a triumphant combination of a 42mm bronze case and a khaki dial. Furnished with a world time complication including two pivoting halves of the globe, Baretzki is certain this will be the model to recall from 2019. To combine the courageous soul of the watch, the turning bezel is graduated like a compass.
  • The Heritage Collection is vintage profoundly and gets on the refinement and tastefulness of Minerva chronographs of the 1940s and 1950s. The Montblanc Heritage Pulsograph highlights an eye-getting salmon dial, a domed dial with two zones, spot and numeral combinations for markers, a re-visitation of Arabic numerals, and a sapphire box crystal.  A restricted release of only 100 watches, the Heritage Pulsometer is outfitted with a section wheel chronograph roused by Minverva’s recorded Chronograph 13.20 type and delightfully designed by hand.
