Yes better but the Aventurine dial wouldn’t have had the same enhancement unfortunately. It’s the true dilemma of this timepiece. A better layout or an highlight on the Aventurine dial? Hard to choose 😕

Quick review of the Montblanc Heritage Chronometrie ExoTourbillon Minute Chronograph

 By: KMII : January 30th, 2018-07:37
When we are talking about haute horlogerie from Montblanc, it is most frequently the Villeret and 1858 lines that are being discussed. In addition to those, there are complicated pieces in the Heritage Chronometrie and 4810 lines, too (here: for a summar...  

That won’t surprise you as you know my tastes but the element of this watch I love the most is its Aventurine dial

Nevertheless, I regret that all the sub dials are too concentrated and a too small ExoTourbillon for the case size of this timepiece in my opinion. It’s a little bit like if Montblanc didn’t know which element of its watch they wanted to highlight (Aventu... 

I see what you mean...

Not just thorough, but you make interesting points when you compare the watch under the microscope with others from the same brand; or with similar complications.

Thanks a lot for your kind words, Padj :)

I will try to make more in that case

That's not cosmic dust

KMII, Thanks for the review. When I saw the photo, my initial though was: "He should have wiped the dust off the glass," Then, I realised it was not dust on the glass but the cosmic highlights on aventurine dial. I like the Rieussec chronograph layout tha... 

Thanks for your thoughts, MTF!

Definitely agree with you in your verdict - fun piece for special moments! And on the issue of the tourbillon being a tad distracting while not harming the chronograph readability at the same time.
