Montblanc Viller 1858 Series Reproduced Pulse Measurement Chronometer

Rose gold and white gold models are limited to 58 pieces each. They are black and white enamel discs with pulse measurement function. The case diameter is 39 mm. hour
Montblanc Villeret 1858 series engraved pulse chronograph
Montblanc launched 5 new products this year, 3 of which are based on timing. Looking back at this year’s Geneva watch exhibition, the chronographs that can make people remember them are probably these three models. If it was not for Montblanc’s insistence, the words ‘chronograph’ would surely be obliterated in Geneva this year.
Compared with the models launched by the Villeret 1858 series in the past 5 years, this replica has a major change, that is, the size has been reduced. The size of the 39.5mm case echoes the trend of chronograph sizes in the 1930s. The slimmed-down movement is only 29.5mm, but it also embodies the classic chronographs such as column wheel structure, single-button chronograph and traditional watchmaking techniques. . This is of course good news for watch fans whose wrists are not stiff enough, because the previous size could not be worn on the wrist at all, and even if they liked its pocket watch-style movement, they could only admire the fish. The outermost edge of the dial is equipped with a red pulsometer scale. As long as the pulse chronograph’s chronograph function is activated and the pulse is stopped at the 30th time, the scale pointed by the chronograph second hand at that moment is the pulse number. At that time, only rich people and special professionals such as doctors, engineers, and explorers could own watches. Pulse chronographs were well received by doctors, and later they were also known as ‘doctor watches’.
