    How should I look at Montblanc Watch Brand

    I first knew Montblanc not from watch but from Pen !

    I have never think that Montblac good at luxury watch before, Until recently I have a look at their Heritage Line and see that the watch look good for the price range!

    However, Since I don't know much about monthblanc I want to know Where can we place monthblanc among other swiss brand?

    Is Monthblanc watch quality, finishing, movement considered good compare to othe brand from the same Price Range? Can it compare to JLC since I have eyes on the same Design JLC & Monthblanc and the JLC have X2 the price compare to Monthblanc !

    And Does the brand respected by WIS and have a good Re-Sale Value?

    Thank you alot !

    I like both brands and feel you can't go wrong with either as they have similar looks both are well built with the edge going to JLC when looking through the casebook and the edge going to Montblanc for bang for the buck.

    Rather than starting a new thread every few hours, why not try searching the archives here? There are many threads on the various topics that you have raised--including, of course, threads of Mont Blanc and its various watches. They are generally favorably received here, sometimes a bit too ornate or blingy for some, but attractive to others, good movements, pricing a bit above their foothold in the marketplace. Generally resale prices are reflective of the mismatch--new, they are pretty expensive, used, not so much.

    They’re owned by the same conglomerate and Montblanc is positioned as the budget JLC, at least the heritage line. Montblanc is to JLC as Seiko is to Grand Seiko. Good rep and decent value prop.

    Why buy a pen-watch when you can buy a watch-watch for the same price?

    Mont Blanc is a solid brand. They aren't on par with JLC but are still very nice watches. The company is a luxury goods company and their approach to watches has the same care as their pens and other goods. I personally like quite a few of their pieces and would like to own one eventually. Used is the way to go with them. You can get a stunning piece for a great deal on the used market.

    I understand your analogy, but just to be clear, Montblanc is two or three steps above a Seiko. The lowest price Montblanc is better than the highest priced Seiko.

    So the question will be Is JLC two or three steps above Grand Seilo?

    Didn't get much respect around here 10 years ago, but there has been a big turnaround.

    Clear as mud. That may be your opinion, but that doesn't make your sweeping generalization true.
