Most high-end watchmakers often keep the number of pieces small for that touch of exclusivity. Collectors are waiting for these serialized models and grab them as soon as they become available. Then there are the unique items, which are in great demand because of their tailor-made sophistication. Montblanc shows its support for breast cancer awareness with the construction of the 1858 Geosphere Pink Dial Unique Piece.
The Hamburg luxury brand is taking part in a charity auction together with other well-known names. We count timepieces from MB&F, Panerai, Bulgari, IWC and Zenith that have corresponding entries for the Pink Dial Project initiative.
The October event will be hosted by Loupe This – a new bidding platform founded by respected watch collector Eric Ku. Returning to Montblanc’s 1858 Geosphere Pink Dial Unique Piece, let’s consider a 42mm titanium case with a coating of black DLC.
The furtive tone is also contrasted by the bright fuchsia pink of the dial. Depending on the viewing angle, the sunray finish creates a dynamic effect on the screen. Other distinctive elements are 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 provides the Arabic hour markers, globes, bezel compass displays and a blue Super-LumiNova coating. The hands and the rest of the indices are now green. Everything runs on the manufacturer’s automatic caliber MB 29.25 with a 42-hour power reserve.
The 1858 Geosphere Pink Dial Unique Piece caseback features a laser engraving of the iconic Mont Blanc peak, a compass rose compass and the Pink Dial Project badge. 100% of the auction proceeds will go to charities in Australia, Holland, Singapore, the US, Switzerland and the UK.
