They don’t make these anymore.
I miss the Montblanc collection Villeret 1858.

Fortunately I have one from this era. Wearing this today.
And the Minerva heritage lives on thru the current Heritage and 1858 collections . Probably the best of both worlds. smile

Cheers

Some old pics of the box and lithograph that came with this watch when I purchased it. 






























That one is a pure marvel! Front and backside. This dial is to die for, in terms of design and depth.

This for sure is my favorite from the MP/Minerva chronographs.

The dial is much more to my liking than the current models.

Personally I think so too :)

I am glad you still have it. Minerva had some great movements, impeccably finished,especially early this century.

Thank you my friend

Happy to share from time to time smile

What a lovely dial as well as movement. Robin, how do you feel about the movement compared to the contemporary 1858? [nt]

It’s the same as the current non Villeret Montblanc watches such as the heritage and 1858 so Long as they use the Minerva calibres 16.29 or 13.21 - movement finishing is the same

I remember this Montblanc grail very well, especially the black enamel. BTW, I love that...
