Montblanc has once again dug into its Minerva archives to inform its latest creation: a classic Heritage Monopusher Chronograph.

The timepiece itself is largely inspired by the Minerva chronographs of the ’40s and ’50s, its mid-century design sensibilities standing out through the iconic dual-subdial construction at 3 and 9 o’clock. Carrying these complications is a salmon-colored dial finished with a grained and sunburst contrast, which is then housed inside a more modern-sized 42mm stainless steel case with high polish, creating the perfect balance between a dress watch and a sports chronograph. Hour markers come in the form of rhodium-plated circular dots and roman numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock, which are all lumed together with the hour, minute and seconds hands.

Unlike its Minerva counterparts which often demand a much steeper price tag, this Heritage Monopusher uses an in-house automatic MB 25.12 caliber, which is based on the Sellita SW 510 movement, boasting a power reserve of 48 hours and operating at 28,800 vibrations per hour. Equipped with 50m water-resistance, the vintage-inspired piece is then completed with a black alligator leather strap and a folding stainless steel clasp.

For those interested, Montblanc’s salmon-dialed Heritage Monopusher Chronograph is now available for $4,950 USD. Head over to the brand’s website to learn more.
