Montblanc 1858 Tachymeter. It is pure magic.

One of my best shot of this watch, which is one of the finest chronograph I know. I know, I wrote it a thousand times, but for me, it is a milestone. 



The only one which can beat it is another Montblanc, the 1858 Split Seconds, because of its beveled lugs and because it goes even farther with the double pliers of its movement. 

The Split Seconds just needs a white metal case, such as the " Only Watch " edition. 



In the meantime, I em enjoying my 1858 Tachymeter, madly. 

Best,

Nicolas

I agree with your assessment of this being the one of the finest chronographs...at any price point. I had an opportunity to try the smaller 40mm green dial version last week and the movement just doesn’t have the same visual impact as this larger one, eve... 

The green, for your eyes...

The Cal 13.21 is superb, too, but less aerial than the 16.29. But the 13.21 is smaller, which allows to house it in smaller watches. ...  

Well put.

Superb movement, but less arial. That captures it better than I could describe it!

Great pictures!

If you can take pictures like this than I understand why you want to have a go at the 1921

A rattrapante in 40 mm would be the tip of the iceberg.

Stainless steel case with a blue degrade dial or black... and here we go!

I wish I could still know the Magic of the 1858.

Admittedly, I hardly every visit this forum anymore. But the thumbnail of your photo caught my eye. Great photo, Nicolas.
