Montblanc Revamps Heritage And Star Legacy Collections With New Models For 2020

Over the past few years, few brands have changed their offerings as dramatically as Montblanc. Fully embracing its legacy as the successor to the legendary and long-running Minerva Watch Company, the marque has turned its design focus away from aggressive, design-forward modernist pieces towards heritage inspired pieces celebrating the long history of the Minerva brand.
