These last months, I used to post my 1858 Tachymeter with its gorgeous manual winding chronograph movement, the Cal 16.29. Here, with the Orbis Terrarum, we are leaving the field of exquisite horology to go the playground of coolness. Cool, this watch def

Montblanc 1858 Tachymeter. July 2020.

I have service experience with all of those, and each one was light years better than Montblanc. Not only that, I will state that Montblanc offered the single worst service experience I have ever encountered with any product or any brand, and that include

Montblanc 1858 Tachymeter. July 2020.

Well, this photo was taken a few months ago, but who cares. Each month, I decided to post one new picture of my 1858 Tachymeter. As an evidence of my love for that watch. Enjoy, as much as I do, and I do like it a lot! Best, Nicolas

It's already June 23, wow. What are you wearing this Tuesday?

I'm not quite sure I'm feeling this one as much as I expected. I'm wondering if I should have gone with the bronze/green version.I'm going to see how I feel about it once I get a vintage-style pilot strap on it.

Montblanc Minerva Villeret. A festival of horological delights.

When Montblanc saved Minerva they decided to invent new calibers/complications and they also decided to upgrade the level of finishing in existing Minerva calibers. So when you compare pre-Montblanc calibers with them, you will see differences. Thus I can

Remember Vulcain ?

This rose gold beauty is the hand wound World GMT Alarm model, with cloisonné dial (limited edition) 42mm. In house movement, the alarm sounds like a mechanical toy when it goes off. Founded un 1858, the brand faces challenging times
