Very pleased to have found this place. Seems to be the only watch spot around with a good number of Montblanc collectors.
I’ve been a fan of what Montblanc has done with Minerva for some time, and recently came across a watch I simply couldn’t pass up.
This is the limited edition green dial monopusher from 2018 featuring caliber 13.21. What a watch! Attached are a couple of photos that I took this morning.
I’m so impressed I’m thinking of adding another. Recently came across an unworn example of the Villeret 1858 Les Secondes au Centre Retour-à-Zéro. It’s the white gold version with the silver dial.
The watch will clearly need to be serviced. Does anyone here have any experience with sending these watches with Minerva movements back to Villeret for servicing? I talked to the local Montblanc boutique and they weren’t very helpful. They said they would have to send it to the third party servicing center that Montblanc uses here in the US, and then they would forward in on to Switzerland, but they had no idea how much it would cost or how long it would take.
Any insight from some of the more seasoned Montblanc collectors here would be much appreciated.
