Most high-end watchmakers often reduce the number of examples for this air of exclusivity. These serialized models are what collectors expect and snatch up on once available. Then there are the unique pieces which are highly sought after for their bespoke sophistication. Montblanc shows its support for breast cancer awareness by creating the unique Geosphere Pink Dial 1858.
The Hamburg, Germany-based luxury brand is participating in a charity auction with other prestigious names. We have timepieces from MB&F, Panerai, Bulgari, IWC and Zenith which have respective entries for the Pink Dial Project initiative.
Hosting the event in October is Loupe This – a new auction platform established by distinguished watch collector Eric Ku. Returning to Montblanc’s one-off 1858 Geosphere Pink Dial, we take a look at a 42mm titanium case coated with black DLC.
In addition, the stealthy tone draws its contrast from the vivid fuchsia pink of its dial. Depending on your viewing angle, the sunray finish creates a dynamic effect on the shadow. Other notable features include the two domed hemispherical globes, a secondary time zone sub-dial at 9 o’clock and a date window at 3 o’clock.
Montblanc then gives the indexes in Arabic numerals, the globes, the compass indications of the bezel, a layer of blue Super-LumiNova. During this time, the hands and the rest of the clues are green. Everything runs on the manufacture’s automatic MB 29.25 caliber with a 42-hour power reserve.
The one-piece pink dial Geosphere 1858 caseback features a laser engraving of the iconic Mont Blanc peak, a wind rose compass and the pink dial project badge. 100% of the proceeds from the auction are donated to charities based in Australia, the Netherlands, Singapore, the United States, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
