Keying into a trend for reconnecting with nature, Montblanc may have pulled off its greatest horological achievement to date with the new 1858 geosphere
“It is easy to get caught up in the intense pace of life and forget that the best way to recalibrate and find focus is to experience the beauty of nature. Any kind of outdoor exploration is a great source of inspiration, contributing to greater creativity, happiness, and inner strength,” says Montblanc CEO Nicolas Baretzki.
The Montblanc 1858 Geosphere wristwatch embodies this wholesome sentiment, with its eye-catching forest green and vintage bronze paying a stylish tribute to the heritage of 1930s Minerva watches and spirit of the great outdoors.
It is inspired by professional and military watches of that era and was created as a companion for adventure and exploration, making it a compelling accessory for the leader who wants to express his off-grid credentials.
Committing to the philosophy behind its products in a meaningful way, Montblanc is also supporting a new initiative, the Montblanc Observatory, a base camp for science. This project offers a training centre for teaching decision-makers, mountain professionals and business leaders about the impact of climate change on alpine ecosystems.
The observatory will be launched as part of the Research Centre For Alpine Ecosystems, a scientific and educational NGO working on the ecology of mountain ecosystems. Just 1,858 of these collectible watches are available, heightening their desirability amongst Montblanc’s new era of watchmaking.
