The detail which pleases me the most in a Montblanc Villeret watch. The finishings of the movement.

And without doubt, the Cal 16.29 is an excellent reason to fall in love. The " Devil's Tail ", which is in fact a Chronograph break lever, is beveled with great care, before being " installed " in the movement, which is equally finished with the same care

Montblanc 1858 Tachymeter Steel / Patek Philippe 5172G. Two pictures.

Dial side: With some common elements of style. The Patek has its two sub dials located under the 3 and 9 o clock line, while the Montblanc is well centered. Some will like, others won't. Movements: Cal CH 29-525 for the Patek, Cal 16.29 for the Montblanc

A montage I made about all the versions of the 1858 Tachymeter housing the cal 16.29.

Which excludes the 1858 Double Split and the 1858 Green, Cal 13.21. Here they are: The Bronze Green is a piece unique for Only Watch. The rest is limited to 100 pieces each. Best, Nicolas

SIHH 2019: A quick view on the Montblanc Heritage Automatic, Steel version.

There are two " first access " watches, this year, at Montblanc: The 1858 Automatic, which I already reviewed, and the Heritage Automatic, which we'll see, now. The Heritage and the 1858 Automatic both play the card of a certain nostalgia, vintage, retro.

A reworked picture of the Minerva Cal 17.29 CH, the ancestor of the Montblanc Villeret Minerva Cal 16.29.

Ok, it needs a good service, but it is still quite pleasant to look at. The level of finish is, for once, higher in the modern! Best, Nicolas

My Greytech is back from the dead

$1,200 later and it’s working like a champ. Apparently the mainspring broke. Not sure exactly how as I’m extremely careful with my watches. Nonetheless, I’m glad my local mom and pop jeweler was able to get a mainspring from Montblanc and fox it locally s
