Montblanc Star Legacy Orbis Terrarum, 2022.

I didn't see this one coming, I must confess. 

The Orbis Terrarum first came in 2015 in the Heritage Line. A very good offer, fairly priced. 

This year, Montblanc just reissued the Orbis Terrarum in the Star Legacy line. Amore refined case, 43 mm big, a bit thick: 13, 84 mm. 

And a redesigned dial, which is quite eye catching,  in my opinion. 

Now, what I less like is the price, which is the double than the Heritage issued in 2015... 



Agreed — it looks very nice; especially the darker dial.

That being said, they need to get with the times. I don't think customers are running for 43mm x14 travel watch. Looks like the rieussec case (albeit smaller) at 40x12 that becomes an interesting piece. Also I could be completely wrong and they may know the market better than me! 😁

I am not disturbed by the 43 mm case. There are a lot of details to read. But the slimmer, the better.

sorry, but imo you are wrong

price is 6,500 Euro which is more ore less what it has always been for this model since 2015 (very early ones were 5,300 and then went up to 5,800 etc)

I thought it was a bit less than 4000 Euros, the first one...

Nice WTs!

I like the blue ocean in the first, and the less pronounced longitudinal lines and the more intricate dial in the latter. And then, in this category there is always JLC Geophysic UT ...

Thanks for the update! 🙏😊

The Geophysic is several steps above, horologically speaking. And in price, too.

Very nice. But not as well priced...

At that price, there are options.  


 By: amanico : November 24th, 2022-07:38

Well, somehow there are always options..

But especially generation 1 and 2 are really nice WT. I love my colorful gen 2 with that overlaying world map discs.


 By: amanico : November 24th, 2022-12:24

Yes. The colorful Gen 2 is quite nice. And more reasonably priced than this one.
