The History of Montblanc
The name Montblanc has stood for writing culture and craftsmanship for more than a hundred years. The brand’s distinctive feature is the unmistakable brand name: the white star that adorns all Montblanc products.
The watchmaking tradition of Montblanc began almost 160 years ago. Charles Yvan Robert opened a watchmaking workshop in the Saint-Irmier valley in 1858. In the 1980s, Montblanc specialised in pocket watches that could be wound by a crown – an innovation! This innovation won numerous awards at world exhibitions and it was precisely there that modern timepieces met with great public interest. Since 1858, Minerva has been demonstrating a superb level of craftsmanship and innovation, confirming the excellent reputation of pocket watches and chronographs.
