MONTBLANC INTRODUCES THE LIMITED EDITION 1858 ICED SEA COFFRET
The Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date collection is now available in a limited-edition box set that includes two timepieces from last year – the green and blue editions – and the latest novelty from this year in glacier grey.
Each model is different from previous editions, featuring a colored laser engraving of a different view of the Mont-Blanc: the blue model displays a picture of the Aiguille du Moine, the green one depicts Les Drus, and the grey model shows Les Grandes Jorasses.
The various Mont-Blanc panorama’s are achieved by structuring the titanium caseback with a laser to create the relief of the image. The texture and color of the engravings are also achieved by laser, creating authentic 3D renderings that provides depth and realism.
The Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date timepieces come in 41mm stainless steel cases and are powered by automatic movements that indicate the hours, minutes, seconds, and a date at three o’clock. Each dial is inspired by the Mer de Glace, the Mont-Blanc massif’s largest glacier, and gives the impression of looking directly into the ice thanks to a special dial fabrication technique called gratté-boisé.
In keeping with their sporty design, they are all certified diving instruments, conforming to the ISO 6425 norm. Each timepiece has undergone the Montblanc Laboratory Test to ensure that it is shock, magnetic, temperature, and water-resistant (approximately 30 bar).
The Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date Coffret comes with a range of straps that are interchangeable (including an additional black rubber strap) and will be available exclusively in Montblanc boutiques. There will only be 191 pieces as a nod to the first three numbers of the date the Montblanc logo was created in 1913. This magic number is also referring to the height of the Mer de Glace, which is 1913 meters high.
