Montblanc Vintage Chronographe Monopusher
So this is the latest edition to my collection, the beautiful Vintage Chronographe Monopusher in white gold with a black enamel dial.
The Montblanc collection Villeret 1858 is in my experience the best finish of a caliber that you can get and only comparable with ALS high end models - but at a much better price point. And manufactured from a brand which is known to millions of customers as a top notch luxury brand, so for me the name on the (enamel!) dial generates trust in the product and not distrust (or even dislike).
However, the demand for these rather expensive models - that were produced only in Villeret - was never high enough within the watch community so the product line has been finally discontinued and substituted in the recent years with the Montblanc 1858 product line (which is not purely produced in Villeret). No new orders will be taken and the small stock is currently being sold. To me this sounds like a good value perspective but in the end it's always a crystal ball....
I have ordered a custom strap in matte black alligator with red stitching to match the dial
