Montblanc turned 100 years old in 2006. The famed writing instrument manufacturer is a legend among scribes. The Montblanc logo mimics the peaks of the snow-capped Montblanc mountain, and this logo is synonymous with the finest luxury writing instruments. Since the 1980s Montblanc has commanded a significant marketshare in the upper echelons of luxury scribing tools, and they are instantly recognizable by their logo and tag line, ‘The Art of Writing’. In addition to the finest writing accessories, Montblanc also manufactures leather accessories and a gorgeous line of wristwatches.
The Montblanc 1858 Automatic Chronograph combines pure aesthetics with functionality and boasts the precision of chronographic functions.

Its 42 mm case has undergone both polished and satin finishing and comes with a sapphire crystal glass box, highlighting the robustness and contemporary look of the watch. Engraved on the case back are a compass, two crossed ice pickaxes and the emblematic Mont Blanc mountain – the iconic peak that has inspired the Maison since its founding.
