I think it is always interesting to what where our watches come from
That's what I did with the 5170 too.
Very interesting post Robin and of course... huge congratz for the purchase!
This is a great model to have indeed and I'm looking forward to your future posts about it.
Have a nice Sunday,

Montblanc 1858 Collection – Part One
Lots of of details have been discussed on PuristSPro’s Montblanc forum, concerning the new Montblanc 1858 collection — especially the 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter, with the beautifully-designed and finished calibre 16.29. I would like to share a three-part...
You mean my writing is that boring?!! :p Cheers Robin
Hehe. I was pulling your leg bro
But yes that was the killer statement from my post indeed. I am doing lots of wrist exercise now to hopefully increase wrist size lol Cheers Robin
Doing more push-ups now
I doubt it will increase wrist size to be honest Luis but at least it is helping me to keep fit Cheers Robin
Congrats on a great catch!
Thanks to your well written article, I am also now tempted by the 1858 Small Seconds, albeit the black dial one with the vintage lume. Alas, my skinny wrist may not be able to handle it. So like you, it's time for me to do some push-ups! ;-)
We can do a push up gtg for the gang! :p The 1858 manual small seconds is also quite big at 44mm and as it is thinner, I feel it wears even larger on the wrist. Go and try the regular 1858 Manual Small Seconds when you have the time at the Montblanc bouti...
going to buy this and put my left hand to work, while using my right hand to guzzle those protein shakes! ...
It was thanks to you my dear friend Nico
That this steel blue dial 1858 chronograph Tachymeter caught my attention. Initially I had assumed this watch is just too big for me and I would pass but now I am convinced and prepared to wear a larger pilot theme watch . Remember you teasing me to share...
Thank you Patrickh
Part 2 and 3 will come soon I really hope to showcase the 16.29 more. Really a beautiful movement which I had targeted for the longest time - just that it has always been on Montblanc Villeret watches that were too big for me like 47mm (even the 43.5mm Vi...
Thanks my friend!
You had covered some of it in your review too I hope to expound on this topic more Cheers Robin
I didn't know that!
Must have missed your post on this. Congrats my friend!! Soon we can do a roll call! With Alex 007 too Cheers Robin
I guess I did not actually announce it
But in the very first thread about this new collection, I indicated the blue steel chrono would hopefully be my first MB. Usually I don't post when I have something on hold, I never count on it until it is fully "in hand". Hopefully this one will be, next...
Indeed I am always fascinated by the inspiration of watches - especially if the source has a strong heritage. Some call it marketing ... I am ok with this as I like a story behind a watch Cheers Robin
Soon your number of appendages will not suffice for the next meeting, in spite of double booking
