If you were to imagine what would be on the wrist of an explorer of yesterday, it would be easy to picture any of these five styles elegantly keeping time. The 1858 Collection takes its inspiration from mountain exploration and the vintage designs of Minerva. 

Comprised of five designs, the collection's biggest highlight is the 1858 Geosphere, a watch that celebrates the Seven Summit mountaineering challenge, in which climbers summited the tallest mountains in the world, a feat that has only been completed by 500 athletes to this day.

The watch features a worldtime complication that features two rotating globes that each features individual timezones with 24 hour scales and day/night indication. The watch comes in stainless steel or a limited edition bronze case and also features a fluted unidirectional bezel with cardinal points, and a variety of strap options.
