Thread: New Mont Blanc Diver

  1. #1

    New Mont Blanc Diver

    This is a new release at only 41mm, I know this will go down well with a few on here and at under £2500, fits nicely into the bracket of more affordable than most.

    That is rather nice and a reasonable price too.

    It's absolutely....average. Nothing particularly special or eye-catching about it other than the use of the 'glacier' dial....which spoils it.

    Would anyone choose it over a Black Bay 58? I know I wouldn’t.

    Kind of agree David.
    It’s Meh.
    Nice enough but there are lots out there in that price bracket (or cheaper) and I am not sure what the USP is. It needs to stand out in this crowded segment.

    I think it has been discussed before in another thread. If it was me, at that price, I’d try to stretch to a BB58.

    Saw one up close in Geneva airport. The colour is a real disappointment. Should have had blue tones

    To be fair there’s only so much that can be done with a sub 5k diver. Probably available for 1500 in a sale , which I’d say is better than a Tudor

    Not fond of glacial pattern on the dial.
    Basically an SW200 movement.
    Looks ok but am not sure in what universe one would compare it with a Tudor.

    Crap dial branding, the Montblanc white cap logo looks much better.

    Patterned (and coloured, and see through) dials are certainly popular at the moment, aren't they.

    It's not terrible in my opinion but I'd want it to be cheaper.

    Not a terribly original design, but a decent looking watch. There's only so much you can do with a black dial and black bezel diver. As mentioned above given its theme blue might have been a more fitting colour.

    I can't even get past the fact that Richemont crowbarred watches (and a ton of other random luxury goods) into the Montblanc brand identity - especially when they own Minerva, so this has no chance for me. Why does it even exist?! And the dial is hateful. If you like it, watch for it in T.K.Maxx a couple of years from now...

    Wouldn’t look twice at it personally, but whatever floats your boat etc.

    With a choice of colours too (not borrowed from Rolex obviously).

    If they’d used the Seiko as inspiration they would have stood more chance of having a colour buyers would gravitate towards.

    I’ll stick my neck out and declare that I rather like that - more so than a BB58. That said I won’t be buying either so perhaps a moot point :shrug:

    Blue looks much better
