This week on the podcast, Blake and Zach are chatting with Asher Rapkin, co-founder of Collective Horology, about their latest release, the 1858 Minerva Monopusher Chronograph “Blue Arrow” P.05. This is a seriously high end, and beautiful, chronograph that takes inspiration from vintage Minerva stopwatches from the 1940s and 50s. Asher takes us through how the watch was conceived, with a variety of different design cues coming together to form a watch that represents a fascinating bit of “historical nonfiction,” as Asher puts it. It’s a watch that Minerva never made, but could have if they decided to move in a slightly different direction.
