It's been too long I didn't post a photo of my beloved Montblanc 1858 Tachymeter.

Time to correct this injustice, with a heads or tails. 

Without flash. Which wasn't easy as the light conditions were not that good... 

This watch is really photogenic. And it is an eternal love for me.

Eternal greatness :) This Minerva caliber and the blue hmnmmmm

I recently played with the thought of hunting one down... the finish and looks of the caliber, the monopusher crown, it is a dream, plus I love blue. Now I am 'glad' that you brought your Rattrapante with you last week, I tried it at the Bar des Horlogers... 

ahhhh I see...

ok then, thanks to Jens :-P I understand your feelings as the Tachymeter suits you really great, I remember also the wrist shots!

Merci, mon ami.

One of those pieces where dial and movement side are equally atractive.

you also need to give it wrist time!

Which one then? Red dot or unveiled?

Underrated (if possible) a brand that punches way above its weight.

I love this old world “style” of movement. I would love to see a full collection of watches (I am not a collector) and have some time to gaze upon these stunning movements in person. 🤓

Well described.

There is SO much value in regards to cost when it comes to these Montblanc watches..

They are just art on the wrist, I cannot find a flaw in them. Thanks for sharing Nico.

Yes, you should!
