Minerva & Montblanc.

Feb 17, 2023,20:30 PM

Wanted to share a group shot and a few shots of the Montblanc.

From Left: Minerva AVUS with Venus 152 40mm size watch (1997), Montblanc with Minerva movement 42mm size watch (2022), Minerva Heritage chronograph with Venus 175 39mm (1997/98) and Minerva 45 Aviation with Valjoux 71 42mm size watch (1997). 

The crown on the AVUS is a replacement. Need to find an original smile

Hope you enjoy the post.

Interesting differences! THANK YOU for this VERY INFORMATIVE post!

The Minerva movements have the classic architecture. The Montblanc Villeret movements have the architecture, some minor differences (more bar springs), and the TRULY AMAZING ULTRA HIGH END finishing! Thanks for sharing these, it's always so informative to... 

Thank you,Patrick!

Thank you. For Minerva it’s the Heritage Chronograph.

(Light brown strap), but overall the MB is my favorite.

can understand both choices

Handled the red arrow last year at watches & wonders - liked it a lot but too close to my MB chronograph ...  

That one is a beauty!
