Montblanc 1858 Tachymeter Cal 13.21, 2018 Limited Edition of 100 pieces.

Sep 10, 2018,02:45 AM

One of the very good surprises from this year certainly is this 1858 Tachymeter " Green ", cal 13.21. 

Not only the watch has a reasonably sized case, but it also has the good taste to be in steel, with some gorgeous beveled lugs, and the smoked green dial is not something you will often see. 

Without forgetting that the movement is very nice looking and well finished. 

Add a decent price, and you have a very tempting and fine chronograph.

Especially like the combination of excellent size and the bevelled lugs and movement you mentioned. Superb!

Had a chance to try it.

The monopusher is very very smooth to engage. I was blown away

Yes, it came to my mind...

but I prefer a richer green on the dial..The green on this dial is too light for my liking...

A bit less light, in the real, though...

“ Add a decent price, and you have a very tempting and fine chronograph“ And this is the point! 28k€ is far from attractive - at least for me. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Totally agree! The winding feel is great and monopusher operation feesl like a dream!

You can't get that at this price point..period..

This over any chronograph from Patek or A. Lange...

... if only one of this precious piece would find it's way to the second market.

In terms of construction, Minerva is the most interesting. In terms of finishing, as you say.

Also Montblanc Minerva offers best bang for bucks in this area, IMO. And this strap... alligator on both sides. :o

I like Little Green even more than Big Blue

The dial colour is very nice, the hand set is even less ornate and the size is perfect. The lack of a crown pusher is a slight negative. The new pricing is more disappointing. The niche dial colour and higher price of entry means it’s unlikely this model ... 

This is a piece I would love to encounter in the real...

Looks amazing in every way!

It is! [nt]

Love it!

I think I would probably go with a duometre...the price is about the same right? Cheers DK

Nico, have you considered alternative strap colors that may go with the watch?

I'm curious what your feeling is on other strap possibilities. Thanks, M4

Different shades of green
