In 1906, at a time when manufacturing was booming, three visionary manufacturing pioneers—engineer August Eberstein, businessman Alfred Nehemias, and stationery entrepreneur ClausVoß—come to the United States to prepare for a grand vision. They invented a writing instrument using leak-proof technology and a piston converter. Engineer Eberstein is extremely visionary and has been studying micro-mechanical innovations in the United States and Britain for many years. His unremitting pursuit of outstanding performance, innovation and perfect quality has become the core spirit and driving force of Montblanc. The entrepreneur ClausVoß is very business-oriented, and he is actively pursuing innovative technologies with unique development potential. By chance, Claus and Eberstein met. He immediately noticed Eberstein’s engineering creativity and passion, and was convinced that he would become his best partner to complete the blueprint for the enterprise.
In 1910, the three founders borrowed the name of MontBlanc, the highest peak in Europe, and officially named the company Montblanc, symbolizing the unremitting pursuit of the highest quality. This dedication to perfect quality has enabled Montblanc to continue to create masterpieces, explore inspiration and develop advanced craftsmanship, and has become the core value and driving force of the brand since its establishment. Mont Blanc has an altitude of 4810 meters, and this number has always been regarded as a symbol of the brand. Today, the new 4810 series has given this number a new lease of life, symbolizing the brand’s founder’s pursuit of excellence when he started this wonderful journey 110 years ago.
The early 20th century was a golden development moment for reform and innovation. This period marked the beginning of a new horizon, especially the transatlantic transportation that promoted the development of international business and cultural relations. Thanks to many revolutionary new inventions, such as the rise of ship steam engines and advances in navigation methods, the development of maritime transport has achieved a huge breakthrough. Passenger routes compete for the prestigious Trans-Atlantic Grand Prix-the Blue Ribbon Award. Taking into account the different routes of transoceanic vessels, the awards are based on average speed and are based on the fastest speed when traveling west along the challenging Gulf Stream. This award has attracted passengers and shipping companies seeking the fastest and strongest ships. The blue ribbon has thus become a symbol of honor and highest achievement. Its spirit is carried forward in the new Montblanc 4810 series, demonstrating top performance and excellent timepiece quality.
In this pioneering era, major port cities have entered the most vigorous development period and become the central hub for trade, cultural exchanges and reform and innovation. Hamburg Port is one of them. As Germany’s largest port, the Port of Hamburg was quickly hailed as Germany’s ‘gateway to the world.’ As a result, Hamburg’s international trade has developed vigorously, and has become Germany’s independent luxury ocean-going passenger ship manufacturing site. The ships it built were quickly recognized and regarded as the world’s most important modern carrier ships. Montblanc is firmly rooted in this era of great change, and launched the new Montblanc 4810 series with both technology and aesthetics to commemorate this important period.
To celebrate the 110th anniversary of the brand and commemorate the golden age that gave birth to its growth, Montblanc has launched a number of unique new 4810 series timepieces, and launched three self-developed complex function movements, namely external tourbillon stop seconds MB29.21, Shuangfei chronograph movement MBLL100.1 and World Time movement MB29.20.
