Montblanc 1858 Pocket Watch Limited Edition

In a modern age of high-tech smartwatches and complicated tourbillons, a classic pocket watch may seem somewhat out of date. However, in recent years a new generation of these traditional timepieces have appeared offering all the function of a 21st Century watch with the timeless form for which pocket watches are known. Click through to see our edit of the best to invest in now.

Montblanc 1858 Pocket Watch Limited Edition

Unveiled at the SIHH watch fair in January 2018, Montblanc's newest pocket watch is part of the exploration-inspired 1858 collection celebrating the brand's 160th anniversary. Designed to be used, rather than just admired, the pocket watch is based on Montblanc's original Minerva pocket watch and prizes versatility and utility above all else. An in-built stand allows the pocket watch to be positioned on a table while an in-built compass can be accessed by laying the watch flat - ideal for planning your next on board adventure. The multi-functional case can also be worn on the wrist with a brown calf strap or placed on a leather strap with a cover for more traditional use. Other features of note include a 30-minute counter and small seconds subdial as well as a 24-hour main dial all equipped with SuperLumiNova numerals.

Case: Titanium, 60mm
Movement: Calibre MB M16.24 manual wound chronograph
Waterproof: 30 metres
Limited edition: 100
