    Pre-Owned Montblanc or Zenith

    My tax return is already burning a hole in my pocket... I’m looking at a few used watches that are for sale right now. The first is the Montblanc Star Meiserstuck chrono and the second is a Zenith El Primero Port Royal. They are both in nice condition but the Zenith is $700 more. Quite frankly the Montblanc is more striking in the photos, but the Zenith is a more impressive piece overall. Both are in my budget. Thoughts about the brands and the models?

    Thanks!

    I agree the Montblanc is probably better looking - assuming it's the roman numerals one.

    I do think the Zenith brand is more revered and generally more exciting to own though. Tough call...but I'd probably go with the Zenith.

    By the one that you like most.

    Both brands are great. In the end, you may be happier in going with your heart.

    Zenith > Montblanc
    My collection changes so often I got tired of redoing my signature

    I would say Zenith would be regarded as superior, but I also believe that Montblanc is mostly under appreciated. When it’s on your wrist, you’re going to care more about how it looks, not it’s pedigree. If you like the Montblanc more, get it, enjoy it and save $700. It’s a fine watch.

    Zenith as a brand has a better reputation

    I've got a Montblanc Chronograph and love it and think it's very well made but that Zenith is in another class in my opinion and worth the extra $$$
