HODINKEE has linked up with Montblanc once again, this time to celebrate Minerva’s heritage, collaborating to recreate a vintage classic: the 1858 Monopusher.

Back in the 1920s, Minerva — the original timepiece brand that subsequently became Montblanc’s research and development arm — had invented one of the first manually-wound monopusher chronographs specifically developed for wristwatches, and the current piece is a tribute to this historic moment.

Drawing from the watchmaker’s design sensibilities in the ’30s, the new 1858 Monopusher features a 40mm stainless steel case housing a black lacquered dial paired with an elegantly contrasting light-beige tachymeter scale surrounding the outer rim. Like the original, the shape of the hands and their cloisonné decoration have been retained, while two counters grace the dial with a small seconds at the nine o’clock position and a chronograph 30-minute counter at three o’clock. The caliber also stays true to its ancestor: the MB M13.21 is a reinterpretation of the early 20th century chronograph Caliber 13-20, and can be admired in all its glory through the display caseback.

The purchase of the Limited Edition 1858 Monopusher will also include a three-day all-expenses-paid trip to Le Locle and Villeret in Switzerland with members from HODINKEE’s team, where you’ll have the opportunity to tour the Montblanc workshop where the famous caliber MB M13.21 is made and assembled, as well as the Montblanc museum.

For those interested, the HODINKEE x Montblanc Limited Edition 1858 Monopusher is now available at the HODINKEE Shop and select Montblanc boutiques, going for $30,000 USD — but act fast, as the collaboration is limited to only 25 units.

Elsewhere in watches, OMEGA honors classic James Bond with a new 007-themed Seamaster Dive 300M.
