Cal 16.29 finishing...

And also, that Villeret architecture and how they do chronographs, is the best. Better than even the Lemania movement architecture in some ways. Of course, the modern movements are easier to adjust, easier to service, and easier to assemble. The Patek Phi

Cal 16.29 finishing...

I've seen some of the most expensive Patek Philippe timepiecess. And they're well finished. Even the lower end Patek Philippe timepiecess are still well finished. It's not fair to compare finishing between Patek Philippe and Minerva Villeret. The Villeret

Honestly how could you not like this watch?

Grand feu enamel dial, Ti case with beveled lugs, gorgeous movement and Rattrapante. It literally has just positives screaming in it. I’m a big fan of the orange touches makes the watch a lot more playful. I apologize for my bad pics which is my MO. Needl

I can’t go wrong. But this is a very „important“ decision for me. And it’s about a lot of money… so I don’t want to make a mistake. Like you I am not the greatest tourbillon fan. A tourbillon today horologically doesn’t not really make sense in wrist watc

I am after refinement AND coolness. I think the term "coolness" is very flexible and subjective, mon ami. The Montblanc Star Legacy Suspended Exo Tourbillon (this is the full name) is definitely the more "classic" watch but no less "cool" for me. Look at

9 and almost 10 Villeret pieces… Wow, I am impressed! If I were to buy this watch, I would do so with the intention of keeping it and not reselling it, either. But it might happen that you are... forced to sell the watch. Nobody can - especially in this d

Agree the website is terrible. They do have some information on minerva and the special touches here- www.montblanc.com If you contact a boutique they can get you information packet by pdf. I think when many of the editions are 18 or 58 range they
