The Spiral Cap and the rose gold Caprice 03 LE. (Both modified ETA 2892-A2 calibers.) If I remember right, D & S used to do some really cool hand engraving on vintage movements. I haven't heard much from them since Cinette Robert sold the outfit. Do they

Montblanc Vintage Chronographe Monopusher

So this is the latest edition to my collection, the beautiful Vintage Chronographe Monopusher in white gold with a black enamel dial. The Montblanc collection Villeret 1858 is in my experience the best finish of a caliber that you can get and only compara
