Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date, the Swiss brand's first diving watch collection has now added a new dial, unveiling the Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Minya Konka Limited Edition [万宝龙1858系列潜水腕表 贡嘎瑞霞].

The new Minya Konka edition with a new red dial that captures the scene of the highest mountain in Sichuan province, China, as the sun goes down.

It comes with a black uni-directional ceramic bezel with the first 15 minutes in a contrasting dark grey and a 3D colored engraving on the caseback that features a picture of the Minya Konka at sunset to match the shade of the watch. This image is achieved using a special engraving technique seen in Montblanc watchmaking.

The engraving begins with the metal being structured by laser to create a 3D relief image that provides depth and realism thanks to a series of matte and shiny finishes that create a special coloring contrast.

The caseback is also engraved with the Chinese inscription ‘中国四川 贡嘎瑞霞’.

For this new limited edition of 285 pieces – a number representing a tenth of the altitude of the glacier of the Minya Konka that sits at 2850 meters – each timepiece comes with both a stainless steel interchangeable and adjustable bracelet and a black rubber strap with a red outline. Stainless steel and rubber were also the materials of choice thanks to their durability in a water environment.
