Thing just got in after some waiting time-

Aug 14, 2020,09:28 AM

I missed a few Mont Blanc Chronos with their amazing Minerva movements for different reasons in the past years. Really close to get the blue stainless and the vintage Pulsographe.
I thought it would be a good time to catch up. (Pun intended.)

BTW has any of you wondered where the devil’s tale went on this movement? I did, and you have to look for it from the side. It’s hiding just under the rattrapante “scisors” of course.🤓 PS Sorry for this poor zoomed macro attempt. Ready to purchase the lou...  

Haha yes as they say...

...the devil is in the de-tail when it comes to horology. (Too easy sorry😂)

Thanks Nico- you’re always so helpful.

Where do you find the time?

I find it. ;) [nt]

Cheers Fabr. Got hung up in the kitchen sorry.

 By: jlc.thomsen : August 14th, 2020-11:19
Yeah it’s super lovely no BS watch.

🚀🥂 [nt]

Looks terrible...

 By: r0gue : August 14th, 2020-10:29
Perhaps removing the big will help!

Yes sorry had to feed the fam. First impressions....

 By: jlc.thomsen : August 14th, 2020-11:03
Dial is a show. Super nice and super sporty. The case is really well finished with polished and brushed angles. It’s a pretty large and thick watch and the titanium is a great choice and makes it feed super sporty. Wonderful activation, split and catch up...  

But the real show, no matter how much they sing and dance on the stage is the backstage.

 By: jlc.thomsen : August 14th, 2020-11:08
Now you also forgive the fairly thick case. I like it! ...  

Well said. [nt]

The back is an epic panorama [nt]

Yes, fantastic manufacture in Villeret.

 By: jlc.thomsen : August 15th, 2020-14:26
I want to know more about them. The machines, the watchmakers, everything.

That would be grand!!!!

 By: jlc.thomsen : August 16th, 2020-13:00

mon Dieu!!!

Breathless..... Which of my children might not wish to go to college. Gotta be one or two surely!

Haha. MB has a good price/quality ration though.

 By: jlc.thomsen : August 15th, 2020-14:23
However you could buy watches, enjoy them and then sell them as they start to look like they want to go to college. 😀Would that be a strategy?

Yeah looking forward to catch up in Paris soon😂

 By: jlc.thomsen : August 14th, 2020-11:30
It’s been to long dancing with this pandemic. ...  

Thanks M4. What I understand is that the use of grade 5 titanium alloy makes it possible to do some polished surfaces

 By: jlc.thomsen : August 14th, 2020-23:12
And apart from being beautiful but not over-done it really helps to break the mass of the fairly thick case. Well done! ...  

Another polished titanium Grade 5.

 By: amanico : August 15th, 2020-00:12
I think it was the first time we saw a Titanium Grade 5 Polished. ...

Snail dial rattrapante minerva is the best of everything combined

Yes! I was obsessed with finding the enamel snail dial Minerva (MB)

 By: jlc.thomsen : August 15th, 2020-01:44
The one they call Vintage Pulsographe, and then they came up with this guy for 2020. Nice move. I will start studying the differences between the Only Watch 2019 and this one. You’re getting the same movement for sure and down to the detail, unless I’ve m...  

Congratulations on that great new release by Montblanc

 By: penfriend : August 15th, 2020-03:34
my snail says "hi" ...  

Thank you friend. Your snail is beautiful!

 By: jlc.thomsen : August 15th, 2020-03:43
Difficult to find-how long have you had it?

Received it last December from my local boutique; it was the last one available world-wide by Montblanc

 By: penfriend : August 15th, 2020-03:54
I was pondering on your blue snail a lot but when this became available I declined on the blue one and went for the black snail. (Black is more for me)

Another marvel. [nt]

although at the moment there is a hot new love affair going on on my wrist

I saw!!! [nt]

Got it. Just checked up on your post. 8 of 8 that’s sometning quite limited and very special my friend-great, unusual and special watch indeed.

 By: jlc.thomsen : August 15th, 2020-11:28
Good that you have such a great Mont Blanc boutique. Just found out that Montblanc International is based in Hamburg. Is that where you are? In this country they only know about pens and belts Great products but I’ve given up on them when it comes to watc... 

It is difficult to find competent people on these complications and calibers

 By: penfriend : August 16th, 2020-04:33
The international HQ is in Hamburg as well as their international flagship store. Here you will find the most knowledge outside of the Suisse operations in Villeret and Le Locle regarding watches. Whenever you are in need for something send me a PN and I ... 

Thank you Penfriend. Very much appreciated.

 By: jlc.thomsen : August 16th, 2020-12:58
I am a lot in Hamburg, so that’s great.
