I have fallen in love with this watch so I just pulled the trigger and should receive it in the mail soon.
I am curious about something that'll neither make or break the love affair:
Although the Heritage Chronométrie uses a Montblanc-massaged Peseaux 7001, does this model go through the 500-hour test reserved for only Montblanc "manufacture" watches? Hodinkee has an article stating that it does, as part of the Heritage line; though I'm inclined to accept this claim by Hodinkee, I thought "manufacture watches" must bear in-house movements.
Is the Peseaux 7001 modified extensively enough that it can be considered a Montblanc in-house Calibre (after all, the movement in this watch is designated as Montblanc's MB 23.01).
So, 1) does the Heritage Chronométrie Ultra Slim get a pass to go into the 500-hour test? And if so, 2) what constitutes a manufacture watch in regards to movement?
Did I get off the wrong stop?
And some eye-candy snatched off the net:
Thanks for your contribution!
