But alas i tried and my small wrist cannot carry these 44mm 1858s ((( The movement is so beautiful and superbly finished!! Nice pics bro! Cheers Robin

Indeed Nico

That's why i painfully sold my 1858 Tachymeter blue dial to a fellow collector. 44mm and too big for me. But I miss the calibre 16.29 big time

Me too Nico

Alas my wrist is too small for 16.29 ((

Yes, I know, a pity.

the 13.21 with 40mm cases don't seem proportional. Would have preferred a 39mm case

Agree. The 39mm Villeret Pulsographe

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : August 15th, 2021-03:52
Was the most proportional case to movement wise. Mine is the 41mm Minerva 150th anniversary series. Even larger but also due to the hunter back

In total agreement.

unfortunately bro

 By: beerstyle : August 15th, 2021-01:57
this 16.31 calibre is based off 16.29, so LL have to be 44mm lor :-P

Yes indeed bro. Lol LL :P

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : August 15th, 2021-03:51
Only we understand LL haha


 By: beerstyle : August 15th, 2021-11:34
we need to teach the rest what it means :-P

That’s a breathtaking piece of art!

 By: MTR : August 14th, 2021-11:12
Both sides are stunning: the dial and - of course - this wonderful movement. I also think that these watches from MB are fairly priced. Especially compared to other brands which some of us pray for and beg to have them. 😉

Thanks for appreciating dude and yes

I agree some other brands are really pricing it real ridiculous these days. and its a pandemic for goodness sake
