    My Collection needs a Swiss Dress Watch. Can Montblanc fill that gap?

    I expect a resounding yes - but I'm just more interested to hear personal experiences with Montblanc watches.
    Never really experienced or handled one but I've seen many and there's something about them that makes me think they're the perfect looking dress watch.

    Looking to hear from people who've owned one or more for some time. How's the quality? Reliability? How does it feel in your hand? How does it compare to other brands? What do you like about it? What don't you like about it? What model do you own?

    I have not owned one yet but when i was at the Boutique in the Galleria the Heritage line is outstanding eye candy and the reviews rate it very high it is on my list for later in the year.

    I own the ultra slim and have for three months now. I must say that it is one of my favorite watches! I bought it as a dress watch but occasionally wear it casually and it works fantastically. The fit and finish of the watch is exceptional for the price point. I bought mine from Jomashop and saved a ton compared to retail. During my three months of ownership I haven't had a single issue and I cannot find a flaw. It is an exceptional value and meets my needs for a dress watch until I can afford a Lange.

    High level summary: Montblanc watches have a really nice feel to them and for their price point they have a nice heft to them.

    More in-depth: depending on which line you get, some are 500 hours tested in-house and come with a strap stamped indicating that they were made in-house by Montblanc at their pellettrria in Italy.

    I was a fan of Montblanc as soon as I walked into the O'Haire airport boutique and almost bought one on the spot but deferred as I had an IWC incoming. But to be honest, my Montblanc watches have been great to me. I am more of a fan of the Lutz Bethge era that focused on the TimeWalker but I like what Jerome Lambert has done to the brand expanding the watch portfolio with more dressier offerings and updating the old Star lin

    I have a 4810 Star (102342). No issues in 2 years of ownership and still catches the eye. Will be adding at least one, if not more, other Montblanc pieces in time. The Heritage Chronometrie Ultra Slim is a definite future addition, and has received some very good reviews.

    I bought an Ultra Slim red gold for dress occasions and am very very happy with it. It was much less than other PM watches, clean, elegant, great band and keeps excellent time. The movement, a 7001, is well regarded and mine keeps time within 1s/d as checked on a timegrapher. My only niggle is that the crown is quite small--the watch being very slim--and more difficult to wind than a larger crown.

    The Heritage Ultra slim is just absolutely terrific, the only watch I didn't mind paying retail for.

    I have owned 2 and still one one of them (in my signature, pics in the albums)

    The build quality is as good as oris or a Tag of the same bracket.

    The movement in mine is an ETA. Its been working great and without issue for over 5 years.

    Feels very solid

    I like the more traditional look of it. Its more dressy than all my other watches. Also my only non black dial. It fits my collection nicely.

    For a watch without micro adjustment and on a butterly clasp (not a fan) it is a comfortable watch to wear.

    I wish I had kept the other black dial one as well. I often try to find one online. I liked it that much.
