Reinhold Messner, one of the most renowned living climbers, is immortalized with the new limited edition version added to Montblanc's Geosphere collection, which takes its name and logo from the snowy mountains.
Montblanc's successful series, Geosphere, gets a new limited edition version. The watch, which is limited to a span of 262 pieces only, is named after the famous adventurer Reinhold Messner.
Among the accomplishments of the Italian mountaineer, born in 1944, are the adventures that push the boundaries like climbing Everest without oxygen support for the first time, becoming the first mountaineer to climb all 14 peaks above 8000 meters and Nanga Parbat summit, crossing Antarctica, Greenland and the Gobi Desert.
The model has a 42mm x 12.8mm bronze case with sapphire crystal on the front and a closed case back with Messner-specific engravings on the back. The watch is water-resistant to 100 meters. The model manages to appeal to adventurous spirits by crowning the characteristic details of the 1858 series with a blue dial, which makes it clear that it is a limited version. Super-LumiNOVA phosphor material, which is applied to the direction indices on the bidirectional bezel, also finds its place on the dial. The model, in which blue and green luminous surfaces are used together, sets standards in terms of night visibility.
The dial features a date window at 3 o'clock and a second time zone indicator at 9 o'clock. The discs, which are positioned at 12 and 6 o'clock and symbolize the northern and southern hemispheres, can track the time for different time zones, including day and night.
Equipped with the MB 29.25 automatic caliber, the watch has a 42-hour power reserve. Developed based on Sellita SW300-1, the movement has 26 jewels and operates at 28800vph.
The box of Montblanc 1858 Geosphere Messner Limited Edition, which is limited to a span of 262 pieces only, includes a blue NATO type fabric strap and bronze plated steel buckle.
