Montblanc Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph Anniversary Edition.

 By: amanico : May 2nd, 2021-16:40
Here is a chronograph we should more often discuss, the Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph Anniversary Edition. 

For the originality of its dial, 

And for its nice looking and pleasantly decorated movement: 

And, should I say, it is one of the iconic pieces from Montblanc, in my opinion. As this is a chronograph you immediately notice and recognize. 

How many of us own one? 



I have lusted after this model. In the beginning, MB had multiple variations in quick succession. Now you don't see them in posts or their website. A same. -John

Very nice iteration!

A beautiful watch that I almost bought.
What bothered and stopped me was that I couldn't read the minutes between 4:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. exactly.

But I’ve seen a wonderful iteration that looks similar classy where this “problem” seems to be solved.

So time to reconsider? ;)

We now have four Rolexes in the family:
Pearlmaster in WG for my wife
Airking for my son
DD40 in WG and Rolex Deepsea 126660 for me

That’s enough at the moment.

Now it‘s time for a different brand (Blancpain FF for example 😊)

Wrong forum!

I thought you asked about the Rolex Yachtmaster. Sorry!! 😁

And no. At the moment I am lurking after a FF.

On the scope

Scoping the Rieussecs for awhile.
I am not a typical guy what i see i must immediately own.

That department is only by watches where my jaws drops directly and the dealer, AD, grey, is reachable, and the risk somebody else buy the watch is high.

But that said, the Rieussecs are interesting chronographs which have a kind of beauty i see not very often.
It are not rare peaces, and i will inspect some if i see them at watch shops. For the price it is not necessary to not strap one on my wrist. I like the most clean types the most.

Thanks for your feedback, Weems.

Lovely watch..

with a different way of registering the elapsed time. I find myself being drawn to quirky/ novel ways of doing something differently. I came very close to pulling the trigger on one of these when I was in the market for a new chrono, only to settle for a GO Panograph in steel which imo was just a little better finished off on the movement front. I cannot rule out getting one in the future though, although it would have to be one of the more 'classically' designed pieces like the one in the image you've posted. 

The PanoGraph is an excellent choice. An idea for a original chronos post?

1 for the Panograph

 By: singingbee : May 7th, 2021-06:07
I like it alot especially the RG model.

Or even better, the PanoRetrograph.

Thanks for sharing Nico

Really like how this is uniquely Montblanc. Anyone can tell it’s a Montblanc on the wrist even from a distance.

That's what I feel. Thanks for your feedback, mon ami.

My Rising Hours saying hi. Love the originality of this iteration where the hours literally rise to the top.

Gorgeous stepped lugs too.

 By: amg786w : May 7th, 2021-21:09

Yes, that's a nice detail.

Have been eyeing them for a while, but so many iterations, it’s difficult to choose.

Now you present another stunner into the mix! 🤦‍♂️

My guilty pleasure.
