I've read about someone owning a large keywind fusee pocketwatch made in 1926.

Like that watch, Dopey. Minerva was acquired by Richemont a couple of years ago and was to become a supplier for Montblanc’s watches. There was a rumour that Minerva would supply watches for the Ralph Lauren/Richemont joint venture. Anyone know if that ever happened?

I didnt want to make a new thread so I thought I would post here. What would you recommend someone who has $2,000 for a watch and wants something unique and good quality that not a whole lot of people own. That is either silver and or black and looks nice and clean cut.

I Dont like rolex's so please don't recommend those. Rolex's remind me of porsche's everyone seems to have one know a day's and I dont want to join the trend.

Longines Master collection - e.g. this pretty bicompax chrono



Also exists in black dial, although not as hot IMO

I saw Dopey post about his Minerva TZ Special so I thought I'd share the black dial version as well as some others.

Minerva TZ Special and Royal Oak Automatic.

Nice watches. The Master Geo is the 38mm version, right?

Those Minervas remind me of vintage Omegas. My 1949 Omega chronometer has markers like that in gold.

I read through most of this thread and am strongly considering the purchase of a nice watch. Does anyone have any knowledge or opinions of Mont Blanc? I know they produce pens/leather products, typically I'd stay away from a company that does not specialize in watches, however I really love the look of the watch pictured.

Any opinions?

The watch is priced in the 3k range retail.

Nice collection. Very nice. These watches deserve better camera shots.
