Montblanc is introducing a limited edition 1858 Split Second Chronograph crafted in a brand new alloy created by the company itself: 18K Lime Gold.

Used to craft the 44mm case of the chronograph, the new lime gold material consists of 18k gold, silver, and iron, combined to create a pale, yellow-green tone. Complementing the hue of this innovative material are the green numeral indexes, the cathedral hour and minute hands, and the tachymeter and telemeter scales, all arranged elegantly on the gold-toned, sunray-finished dial.

Powering the watch itself as the in-house mono-pusher chronograph calibre MG M16.31 — a movement that draws inspiration from the original Minerva calibre 19-09CH from 1909 — operating at 2.5Hz and carrying a power reserve of 50 hours. A display caseback provides a clear view into the intricate movement, which boasts handcrafted traditional finishings including Côtes de Genève, inner angles, circular graining and bevelling, all done within the Montblanc Manufacture in Villeret, Switzerland. The vintage-inspired timepiece is then completed with a green nubuck alligator strap with beige stitching, naturally paired with a buckle in the same lime gold material.

Now available, Montblanc’s new lime gold 1858 Split Second Chronograph Limited Edition 18 is retailing for $50,000 USD. Head over to the watchmaker’s website to learn more.

Elsewhere in watches, Audemars Piguet has introduced a new 43mm Royal Oak Offshore collection.
