Red arrow from last year, smaller movement but not bad either ... ...  

Not bad indeed! 👍

Total package

With these watches. Love the fonts, depth, the texture, the colors. Very nice. 👍 I actually took some photos the other day of my two and these minerva 1858 markings.

I am not sure who worked on the design of those dials but you are totally right.

There are so many examples amongst top tier brands where a nice watch is ruined by a poor choice of font for example.

Those dials were at that time mainly designed by one lady in Villeret

I met here several times, can look for her name. The design then needed to be approved by the MD and the CEO of Montblanc

Very interesting color, much appreciated!

Sometimes people behind the scenes make all the difference. Patek can learn a thing or two from her ...

It is the luck for others that the major is not the best with fonts. That is why i prefer Vacheron Constantin over them.
