From the vast desert to the azure glacier, from the quiet forest to the top of the world, the Montblanc 1858 series of watches has always adhered to the spirit of mountain adventure and continued the journey of exploration of the mysterious nature. This time, Montblanc found inspiration from the “end of the world” Antarctica. It launched a new 1858 series of northern and southern hemisphere world time anaerobic watches, Antarctic Expedition limited edition (1990 pieces worldwide).
The Montblanc 1858 Series Northern and Southern Hemisphere, World Time Watches, have always taken inspiration from nature and focused on exploring those unknown and mysterious places to inspire the unlimited imagination of today’s explorers. Located at the southernmost point of the world, the South Pole on the Antarctic continent is a wilderness. This vast snow and ice plateau reaches an altitude of 2,835 meters. The climate is cold and dry, like a desert, with little precipitation and close to zero relative humidity. Also, strong winds are raging here, blowing up snow all over the sky, and the temperature can plummet to minus 65 degrees Celsius. The climate and environment are very harsh, making it one of the most desolate areas on Earth, unsuitable for human habitation. Top swiss replica watches.
Pioneers who challenge the limits
In 1990, Montblanc Mark Maker, legendary mountaineers Reinhold Messner, and Arved Fuchs successfully hiked the mountain without the assistance of any animals or mechanical equipment. Cross Antarctica and become the first explorers to achieve this feat. During this long and arduous journey, they dragged a sled with a load of more than 100 kilograms, covered a distance of nearly 2,800 kilometers, and climbed more than 3,000 meters in height without using a compass or other equipment to indicate the direction. Montblanc was inspired by Messner’s inspiring adventure and launched the new Montblanc 1858 series of Northern and Southern Hemisphere World Time Anaerobic Watches Antarctic Adventure Limited Edition (1,990 pieces worldwide). The watch features an ice blue “glacier pattern” dial with a unique blooming effect, depicting realistic Antarctic glacier tones and layered textures, presenting the unique style of the cold polar wilderness.
Leave a mark on life.
Montblanc Mark Maker Simon Messner was born in 1990, and it was in this year that his father, the legendary mountaineer Reinhold Messner, completed the feat of hiking across Antarctica. On December 13, 2023, Montblanc will accompany Mark Maker Simon Messner to participate in the Antarctic Ice Marathon and go to the Antarctic Ice Marathon. This time, Simon Messner will be a participating athlete, wearing the new Montblanc 1858 series Northern and Southern Hemisphere world time anaerobic watch Antarctic expedition limited edition (1990 pieces worldwide), facing severe challenges in the wilderness glaciers.
The starting point of the Antarctic Glacier Marathon is located at the foot of Ellsworth, 700 meters above sea level. The area is only a few hundred miles from the South Pole and is often accompanied by downhill solid winds, making the challenging environment even more severe.
About Simon Messner
Simon Messner researches molecular biology and is also a passionate mountaineer. When he was 15, Simon challenged the classic ice-rock mixed climbing route in the Dolomites and fell in love with mountaineering. So far, he has successfully challenged many mixed ice and rock climbing routes and completed his first solo ascent in Oman, Jordan, Pakistan, the Alps, and the Dolomites in his homeland. Simon believes that protecting the mountain environment is crucial, and neither the process of establishing a climbing route (i.e., the climbing model) nor the climbing itself can be neglected.
Xunjing Glacier Blue is different from common ordinary white ice. Antarctic glacier ice is squeezed by gravity and has become denser and more complex over time. The internal air bubbles are almost exhausted and can absorb most colors in the spectrum. Because blue light has a shorter wavelength and is scattered, glacier ice appears crystal clear blue ice. Montblanc applies this unique polar glacier blue to the dial design of the new 1858 series Northern and Southern Hemisphere World Time Anaerobic Watch Antarctic Adventure Limited Edition (1990 pieces worldwide), which is decorated with the brand’s iconic glacier logo and paired with two-way glacier blue. The rotating anodized aluminum bezel is embedded with a primary orientation mark coated with luminous coating, making the wearer feel as if he is crossing the ice, diving into glacial waters, and exploring the beauty of nature immersively while admiring the timepiece on his wrist.
“glacier pattern” dial
To vividly display the texture and texture formed by glacial ice frozen for thousands of years, Montblanc used a process called “grattéboisé” to create an exquisite glacier pattern dial. The dial is made through meticulous manual processes, including printing, painting, and polishing. After completing each process, the dial is left to dry overnight, and then the next layer is applied, and the operation is repeated to present a realistic glacier depth. Feel and gloss. Making a glacier pattern dial requires more than 30 independent manual processes, and the production time required is four times longer than that of an ordinary dial.

Celebrating the beauty of the Aurora Australis
Antarctic Paradise Bay is not only a paradise for emperor penguins but is also world-famous as an excellent place to watch whales. In addition, the fjord is one of the coldest and windiest places on Earth. Montblanc uses unique laser engraving technology on the case back of the new 1858 series Northern and Southern Hemisphere World Time Anaerobic Watch Antarctic Adventure Limited Edition (1,990 pieces worldwide) to vividly depict the shocking beauty of the Aurora Australis over Paradise Bay, praising the natural scenery of Antarctica. Beauty of.
The “Aurora Australis” is a gorgeous, magical, and stunning natural phenomenon that appears in the night sky in the Antarctic region. The Aurora Australis is caused by violent collisions between the sun’s stream of charged particles (solar wind) and gas molecules in the Earth’s upper atmosphere. Its color is determined by the wavelength of the colliding gas molecules, with oxygen molecules emitting a red or yellow-green hue and nitrogen molecules emitting blue light. Whenever the Aurora Australis appears, it seems like colorful light strips swaying and dancing in the night sky.
The land pattern and time zone hands on the dial are all coated with a blue luminous effect, while the hour and minute hands, digital time scales, and essential orientation marks on the bezel are coated with a brilliant green effect. The blue and green light allows the wearer to read clearly at night while reproducing and echoing the primary colors of the aurora.
Special laser engraving technology
To present the shocking scenery of the Southern Lights as vividly as possible, Montblanc used exceptional laser engraving technology to highlight the pattern on the back of the case, giving it a photo-realistic three-dimensional effect. To produce such a delicate and vivid pattern, the titanium metal must first be laser-engraved with decorative layers to ensure its relief effect. Then, the laser is used to polish the desired matte or polished gloss finish further. Finally, it is given color through the oxidation produced by the laser, and the different degrees of oxidation cleverly determine the final desired color. Montblanc is one of the leading Swiss brands to use this technology on such a large scale, and this innovative move is closely aligned with the brand’s pioneering spirit of exploration.
The new Montblanc 1858 series Northern and Southern Hemisphere World Time Anaerobic Watch Antarctic Adventure Limited Edition is limited to 1990 pieces worldwide. This limited number cleverly echoes the year when Reinhold Messner successfully walked across Antarctica, paying tribute to the pioneers and pioneers who challenged the limits—the spirit of mountain adventure.
