    Montblanc Heritage Chronometrie 7347

    Need a sanity check because, as much as I love this watch something just isn’t ‘right’.

    I was wondering if anyone who has this watch can tell me if I’m going mad...

    Mine has what can only be described as a ‘raspy’ noisy movement. As the weight swings is seems to ‘grind’.

    Also the watch seems to rattle a little when moved.

    The plot thickens a bit when I say that this was sent back to MB to look at and returned the same if not a little worse.

    Does anyone have any experience with this watch and can tell me if this is normal..... because it doesn’t seem like something I would expect from a watch as refined as this - none of my other automatic watches sound nearly as bad as this!

    Guess you cannot get a refund?

    No, I don’t want a refund. Just for it to sound as good as it looks!

    I'm not familiar with this watch in particular, but if it has ceramic bearings, they sound like what youve described.

    I'm assuming this has a Sellita movement inside, which much like the stock ETA movements, will have a rattle and noise as the rotor winds. I believe the Heritage Chronometrie watches undergo the Montblanc 500 hours test? Should be good. Unfortunately, this is what you get with non in-house movements.

    I’ve been on to MB in Hamburg and spoke to a nice bloke who, when I repeated the sound whilst on the phone, said that it didn’t sound right.

    It has an MB24.09 movement (effectively it’s a sellita SW300-1).

    I have a Muhle Glashutte terrasport with an SW200-1 movement which is muuuuch quieter when side by side - and that’s based on the ever ready eta 2824-2.

    I’d happily exchange it for another of the same model - will wait for them to come back to me!
