The Montblanc company was founded in 1910 by three remarkable gentlemen, Claus-Johannes Voss, a stationer, Alfred Nehemias, a banker, and August Eberstein, an engineer. Combining their intellectual and technical skills, the three men started the Simplo Filler Pen company in 1906. In 1910, they released their Montblanc pen, whose name was later on to become the new company title. The company would eventually add other products under its belt, including watches.
Among the highlights of Montblanc’s watchmaking history is the invention of the e-strap, an interchangeable strap that adds smartwatch-like features to a wristwatch. Montblanc continues to produce timepieces with excellent technicity, performance, and innovative appeal, making them one of the most dynamic watch companies in the world today.
