    MONTBLANC SPORT CHRONOGRAPH WATCH 3273 Thoughts?

    For sale locally. I've watched one review online and read just a little about this but would like some first hand thoughts on this model and the longevity of it(if possible).

    Disclaimer: I dont own this specific watch.

    It's a Montblanc 4810 movement, which is a 7750 movement, which is time tested as one of the most reliable and durable movements. Montblanc all around build quality is excellent and durable, and so have other Montblanc chronos been.

    So what I can infer from other Montblanc watches with this movement, most likely this watch would have solid durability and reliability.

    Well...you are correct about the Valjoux 7750 standing the test of time, but there are a couple negatives to consider, if you'll permit me to be Devil's Advocate:

    1. Watch thickness. The 775X is not a slender movement, and watches cased for it tend to be on the thick side. If that doesn't bother you, fine. (It bothers me.)

    2. Horizontal coupling. If you have any thoughts of running the chronograph all the time just to see the central seconds hand go, that's not recommended for the 775X because of the engaging gears: one of them has needle-fine teeth that will wear out quickly and potentially break, leaving bits of metal floating around in the case.

    3. The Wobble-monster. The 775X rotor on winds in one direction, leaving the other direction free-spinning; you'll find if you move your arm sharply, the rotor will spinning very quickly, causing the watch to noticeable wobble on your wrist. Some people find that endearing. But understand that if you plan to use a winder, you'll have to buy a programmable one.

    Regards,

    Thanks. One thing that does bother me is the Cyclopes eye. The date doesn’t line up like I think it should. The watch feels solid and I like that. It is tempting and it is not overly priced at this point but I’ll probably just save and complete another project

    If you're not interested in it, can post or DM me the asking price if it's a good deal? I'm liking it myself.

    Looks similar enough to my ideal watch:



    Thanks

    Not sure if it is overpriced but it is listed at about $1300. I'll go back by the store tomorrow and double check that price and see if they have any wiggle room.

    It was used but before I made it back it was gone.
