Montblanc Introduces their New CARBO2 Case Material in the 1858 Geosphere 0 Oxygen Limited Edition

Montblanc has just released the limited-edition 1858 Geosphere 0 Oxygen. This latest release blends the spirit of mountain exploration, a tribute to the historical Minerva pocket watches and chronographs designed in the 1920s and 1930s for military purposes, with cutting-edge technology that has continued to define the Montblanc brand in recent releases. 

The hallmark of this new model is its innovative case material, CARBO2, created through an eco-conscious process that transforms CO2 captured from bio-gas and mineral waste into a durable composite when mixed with carbon fiber. This pioneering material not only sets a new standard in sustainable luxury watchmaking but also boasts a striking dark hue that perfectly complements the adventurous essence of the Montblanc 1858 Geosphere 0 Oxygen.

The watch’s dial, inspired by glacial textures, is crafted using the gratté-boisé technique for an intricate effect that mirrors the complexity of ice crystals. The dial is complemented by white luminescent black rhodium-coated Arabic numerals and indexes, white luminescent rhodium-coated hours and minutes hands, a white luminescent dual time hand, and luminescent Northern and Southern hemispheres globes with blue Greenwich meridians. It is this set of small details that show the precision and focus of Montblanc with their luxury-end watches.

In fact, one extremely intriguing feature is the side engraving of Mont Blanc Mountain, visible only to the wearer, which glows luminously in blue at night.

The Montblanc 1858 Geosphere 0 Oxygen comes in an eye-catching 43.5mm titanium and CARBO2 case. The watch is powered by a Calibre MB 29.25 automatic movement with a 42 hour power reserve. Each Geosphere is equipped with a black interchangeable rubber strap featuring a fine adjustment system, with the pattern reminiscent of the textiles used by mountaineers.

This collection is limited to 1969 pieces (a number which pays homage to Reinhold Messner’s groundbreaking solo ascent in 1969). The Montblanc 1858 Geosphere 0 Oxygen is available now via Montblanc’s website with a pricetag of $9,100. Montblanc
