I am looking at a everyday watch and I almost pulled the trigger on the Montblanc Heritage Chronometrie collection. Then I discovered an interesting model, the Shorokhoff vintage 5 manual wind. This model is on sale at a german grey market store for $880 usd. It has a lovely decorated manual wind movement. It is a bit thick for me at 40mm x 10.10mm. I have a 6.5'' wrist. I am not familiar with this Shorokhoff brand and it seems like a minority brand here (compared to montblanc). I like the look of the movement and the general look of this watch, but I think the big "60" on the dial get some hate in the other reviews from here.
The montlanc blue dial version is priced at $1700 from jomashop, with size 40mm x 7.65mm. And the silver dial/gold hands version is priced at $1300 from watchmaxx (grey market), with size 38mm x 7.65mm. The montblanc heritage chronometire becomes my final list after asking suggestions from my previous posts here (my criterions inside):
I am struggling in deciding between these three models. The montblancs might fit better for my small wrist cause they are thin, but the Shorokhoff have funky looking dial and nice looking movement. Any suggestions? Or maybe I should get both the silver dial/gold hand Montblanc and the Shorokhoff vintage 5 at the same time?
