When we left off the Blindside Challenge, where we ask a key brand leader to i.d their watches by touch alone, Montblanc CEO Jérôme Lambert had guessed one out of a possible two watches. The distinctive Rieussec case proved no match for his keen wits and powers of deduction, but the 1858 Small Seconds was, as he said, “impossible” to identify, as there was no way to tell the difference between several models simply by touch. So it comes down to this. The final two Montblanc watches. Will Jérôme’s encyclopaedic knowledge of Montblanc’s watches win the day, or will he stumble over the final hurdle? Find out in the gripping finale of the Blindside Challenge. If you missed the first instalment, find it below.
