    Montblanc Movement Concern

    Ran across a guy today with a Montblanc and I asked to see the movement inside. He opened it up and revealed a rather dull looking Miyota movement. I did not want to be rude and question the authenticity of the watch because it was a public venue, but it looked a bit tacky and ill fitting. Can anyone clarify for me if Montblanc has ever used a Miyota movement in their watches. It just does not seem like it is right, but I am just a novice. Thanks for the input on this one.

    Cheers,

    SAB

    Hello,
    Since no one else has attempted an answer, I'll try one. I can't say with 100% certainty that MB never used a Myota movement, but I will say it is EXTREMELY UNlikely they did. You did the right thing in not mentioning it to your friend.

    If you are considering purchasing an MB watch, the 1st thing I would do is ask him where he bought his. The 2nd thing is NEVER, EVER, buy yours from the same source.

    Re: Montblanc Movement Concern

    I am no watch expert by far, but I have owns several Montblancs, hand have some knowledge of the movements, they mostly used eta's as a base, I have the sport Chrono with what they now call a 4810 501 movement, basically a valoux 7750 with some modifications. I have not heard of any miyota movements ever used in a Montblanc. My guess is it is a fake montblanc, and that was the movement they put in it. I Also believe that they are owned by the Richmond Group, same company that owns other high end watch companies, they are using their movements Also, like Minerva for example.
    Montblanc watches are in my opinion underated, I will put my Montblanc Sport Chrono up against any Rolex, Omega or whatever, and dare anyone to vote against the Montblanc for quality, looks and reliability. Just my opinion though.

    Montblanc has never used a miyota movement. Since they "re"-entered the watch segment in the 90s they have always used swiss movements.
