    Advice/Help Buying a Nicolas Rieussec

    I'm in the market to add a Montblanc (Nicolas Rieussec) to my small but growing watch collection. However, where I live there are no dealers within hours. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could provide the name(s) of authorized retailers that also have a web presence or would take phone orders. Thank you.

    Re: Advice/Help Buying a Nicolas Rieussec

    Best of luck with your search! Just a head's up, there were some rumblings a few months ago that Montblanc is looking to phase out the Rieussec lineup (not sure what truth there is in that, or perhaps they're just not going to be adding to the lineup) but there was a noticeable absence of the lineup at SIHH, and a lack of web presence on the Montblanc site. If one could/would read between the lines, it's fairly obvious why Montblanc might be going down this line. When the NR line was introduced, that was the Montblanc "entrant" in the world of in-house movements. Now that Jerome Lambert has integrated Minerva movements into Montblanc pieces and a general aversion of the 10,000USD-20,000USD segment which is where NR watches were situated, coupled with the generally poor resale market for them, I can see why Montblanc is moving away from the piece.

    What I mean to say is, don't wait too long (ie 5 years from now) to get one, but it might be worth waiting a little bit longer, you might be able to leverage a better discount out of this.

    My spouse works for MontBlanc. These have been discontinued and the boutiques have shipped all NR watches to MontBlanc outlet stores and are available at a tremendous discount. If you want one, I would recommend you jump on it now, if you want it to be new.

    thanks for the confirmation about the rieussec lineup. Any idea of what the discounts are at the outlet stores? I only discovered recently that MB even has outlet stores. Such a weird concept.

    Sorry I don't know that. Probably 30-40% off. I know one of my wife's staff picked one up in the last few weeks.

    Good Luck

    Okay thanks for your help. Yeah I bet if they stack their employee discount plus the discount available to everyone, it's a good deal.

    I wasn't aware that the Nicolas Rieussec is being discontinued. That's a shame!

    I was considering purchasing one a while ago and was offered nearly 20% off full RRP.

    At 30-40% off RRP, it would be an incredibly good deal!

    Is this why they seem to be prominent on the grey market sites currently?
