Luxury brand Montblanc has been famed for more than 100 years for producing elegant writing instruments, now they are applying the same approach of quality, design and craftsmanship, to their own line of luxury watches.

An important step was made in 2006 with the acquisition of the traditional watch manufacturer Minerva. This company, founded in 1858, and now under the guidance of Maître Horloger Demetrio Cabiddu, after many years of development has designed a new calibre: the MB R100.

Its spectacular debut was celebrated with the launch of the model ‘Nicolas Rieussec Monopusher Chronograph’.

With this new movement Montblanc can now count itself among the top watch manufacturers and not only a mere accessory producer.
