Montblanc Villeret 1858 Grand Chronograph Black Enamel or Vintage Pulsographe?
White gold cases, 43, 5 mm for the Grand Chronographe, 39, 5 mm for the Vintage Pulsographe, Black Enamel or White Enamel, monopusher located in the crown for the Grand Chronographe, or at 2 o clock for the Vintage Pulsographe....
Snail or doctor?
Cal 13.21 or 16.29? 13.21 for the vintage Pulsographe, 16.29 for the Grand Chronographe black enamel.
These two are highly tempting, almost an dilemma. First because they both offer an enamel dial, then because I am a big fan of snail dials, doctor's dial.
So, when it comes to the dials, I really don't know. I never had a black enameled watch, so maybe the black would be THE solution, but the white is to die for.
As for the movement, if I didn't own the 1858 Tachymeter, it would have been a tie game. Maybe a slight preference for the huge dimension of the Cal 16.29.
Now that I own the 1858 Tachymeter, I would prefer adding the 13.21, which is another superb movement.
The case? Same than for the movement... I already own a big case, so why not going for the smaller ( 39, 5 mm ) version.
Monopusher? I am very happy to see that these two watches are mono pusher chronographs, as I am a big fan. Now, I prefer the solution of the mono pusher installed in the crown, I find it purer.
But, once again, I already own one, so diversifying with a mono pusher at 2, why not...
The blue hands of the Pulsographe have my preference, too.
I feel I am on the way to get a second Montlblanc Villeret Chronograph.
Should I wait for a new one, with a hunter case back, snail or doctor's dial?
