The first elegant and interesting Montblanc Homage to Nicolas Rieussec replica watch emerged in 2010, and every subsequent model has followed the same essential formula, with dials and case materials receiving tweaks along the way. So, while the updated Montblanc Homage to Nicolas Rieussec II Limited Edition replica watch isn’t a new piece, it’s worth a closer look.
This high quality, remarkable Montblanc replica watch is comfortable on the wrist, and the sort of watch you’re unlikely to see on anyone else in the boardroom. For me though, the collection marks an important transitional point for Montblanc – a clear evolution from the TimeWalker and 4810 collections, with its superior movement and genuinely unique design. Though the Rieussec seems to have been lost in the shuffle, occupying a space between their complicated heritage pieces and their Villeret collections, I think it deserves a place in the sun, as a strong, original design that’s emblematic of Montblanc’s watchmaking.
There’s a lot happening on the particular Montblanc Homage to Nicolas Rieussec II Limited Edition replica watch’s dial, in the best possible way, demanding attention and rewarding the eye. Every time you look there’s a new, equally fine detail to admire. First up, the base of the dial is silver, with a grained, eggshell finish. Upon this rest three subdials, the largest telling the time, while the smaller two are chronograph minutes and seconds counters respectively. These white ceramic subdials sit above the dial, creating depth through shadow.
The amazing and appreciated Montblanc Homage to Nicolas Rieussec II Limited Edition replica watch is a sizeable beast. At 43mm across and 14mm high, it’s at the larger end of the scale for a highly polished chronograph. This size combined with the distinctive dial means you can be sure this watch will make a statement. And anyway – the height of the watch is justified, given that there’s an automatic chronograph movement ticking away in there.
