Oleg,Gosh Montblanc Twinfly Flyback Chronograph is a beautiful watch!
FAD - (Forum) Favorite Authorized Dealer.
Yes. That is my watch. I am extremely happy with it. As I have said before...at the price, there is little to no competition for: an in-house movement, column wheel, vertical clutch, night/day, date, 72 hour reserve, GMT, off-set dial, rotating disc chrono, off-set main dial. The level of finish is fantastic and I have done the loupe work on it. Honestly, at MSRP you are getting what you pay for it, and we all know you never pay MSRP. Go for a Gen 1 to get the best deal. Clearly, I prefer the Gen 2. Any MB Rieussec is fantastic, and I can't fathom that you'd be disappointed. Good Luck!
Make sure you know what you are looking at. They have three "levels" of watches. All are beautiful, but some are superior.Beautiful watch. I've been meaning to get into an AD and check these watches out in person. Since they are still a relatively new company, they offer a solid value and will continue to gain recognition in my opinion.
Easy. ;-) MB didn't start making watches until the mid 1990s. That said, the latest iterations, for the most part, they are worth every cent.1906 is new?
Montblanc has my respect. Not only do they make pretty timepieces, some have in-house movements as well. For me though, they lack the history of some other brands that are in their price range, so I might be tempted to look elsewhere unless it were a particularly unique or beautiful timepiece.IMHO Montblanc doesn't get the horological credit it deserves because of it's reputation as a pen company. Their timepieces are absolutely top notch.
What difference does it make that richemont group acuiring als versus purchasing of minerva (under the mb wing). Does als lose it's credibility as well??Montblanc has my respect.
