Montblanc Villeret Grand Chronograph Grand Feu Enamel blue dial - NWA
By: penfriend : February 9th, 2021-11:24
I am so happy that my Montblanc Villeret Grand Chronograph LE 1/1 finally arrived. This watch is a piece unique with a blue Grand Feu enamel dial sitting in a platinum case and being driven by the Minerva caliber 16.29 which you can admire after opening the officers lid. The monopusher in 47 mm was built 67 times: 58 pieces in RG, 8 pieces in WG and 1 piece in PT. This watch was showcased by Montblanc on many events and fairs and now I have been so lucky to finally being able to get it allocated.
It is very heavy and pretty large but not too large for me. The case itself is nicely shaped like a neck-protection of a knights armor. And the blue enamel dial shows beautiful variations from strong blue to dark blue and light blue as only enamel can do - I have not seen a more beautiful blue dial up to now.
There exist several in-depth reviews of this Montblanc Villeret Grand Chronograph on WPS so I won’t go into further detail but let the pictures of my new arrival speak. Thanks for looking!
Certainly an unique Peace, a chronograph which i like more than a standard two pushers and a crown.
Great to see members with the target to get a big 45 plus millimeter Swiss time keeper. I am also fan of very oversized Swiss luxury watches. It wears strange, but it is a pocket watch with a strap for the wrist and a sweet collectable.
What can I say? This is a pure marvel. And not only the case, case back, movement or dial, but the WHOLE watch. One of the best, if not THE best MB Villeret Chrono. And cherry on the cake... In platinum!
Indeed it is imho the most impressive watch I have ever seen. Within the Montblanc Minerva collection (and with other brands) there are more complicated pieces so initially I was unsure to spend this many bucks on a simple Chrono. On the other side this is the most beautiful dial I have seen and can imagine. The movement is superbly finished, the case design is so unique and it is platinum. So the whole of it was to me more important than a complication like 1/1000 stop watch, bi-tourbillon or mysterious hands. And not to forget: being the happy one to get it allocated at all. You will love it being a fan of blue dials and platinum cases.
and the enamel is not only Grand Feu but also Grand Feu champleve (through this technique it becomes more 3-dimensional). Compared to my black enamel chronograph you can see it by eyes but I don't have the camera to make it obvious in pictures.
