Montblanc announced the '1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date,' a modern dive watch with several nostalgic design choices. The most notable aspect of this timepiece is its dial. The dial features a uniform
background color with lightened texturing that results in it appearing like a frozen sea. This phenomenon is immediately recognizable on the blue colorway, however, the watch is also available in black and green options.
The 1858 Iced Sea boasts two nostalgic designs: a date complication on the "3" hour marker, and a syringe-style design for the hour and minute hands. The syringe-style hands give the watch a bulky feel commonly associated with more traditional diver watches. As a luxury diver watch, this timepiece is suited for a depth of up to 1000ft through its reliable waterproofing and pressure-resisting technologies.
