Montblanc - watches & reviews

Montblanc - A Swiss Watchmaker since 1858 Montblanc watchmaking is built on a unique set-up thatbrings two manufactures together, based in Le Locle and in Villeret, in the Swiss Jura mountains. TheMontblancwatchmaking story began in 1858 when Mr. Charles-Ivan Robert founded a watchworkshop in the Saint-Imier valley. This marked the beginning of the historic Minerva era. By the endof the 19th century, pocket watches started to gain recognition for their crown winding system. TheMinerva Manufacture’s success resulted in the company becoming a leading specialist in professionalwatches (stopwatches and chronographs) for measuring small intervals of time with high precisionduring the 20th century. Today, Montblanc timepieces continue the journey of over 160 years ofMinerva history through four fine watchmaking product lines: Star Legacy, Bohème, 1858, andHeritage, all linking the past and the present through design, style, and technical innovation.
