I am a fan of Montblanc pens, in fact I will be in a MB Boutique later today and I may buy the new Victor Hugo fountain pen (Writer’s Edition 2020). Every time I am in the Boutique I look at the watches as well and there are some truly beautiful offerings, many at very reasonable price points.
Over the past 10 years, Montblanc has offered up some great watchmaking, both classical and modern. For those who have been paying attention. This collection has a lot of underrated pieces...perhaps not underrated here.
I own eight MB watches and while I only own ones from the Le Locle facility, I feel that while their watches are neck and neck with other Swiss brands in terms of quality, they don't get their due as MB is always associated as the 'iconic pen' brand. And some, might not even realize they make watches. My two cents anyways.
