Just as an aside, interesting musings re Mont Blanc here recently
I just get the impression that here in the uk the brand isn't held in the highest esteem at all. I have a MB pen but would not look at a watch. A key reason is how they are marketed here etc and where they pitch themselves in the market.
I have tried to look at them objectively in light of postings here but I've been conditioned? Or have they found a niche in the uk and seek, have sought a different status elsewhere...
Just an observation
Cleav, here in the States many people view MB watches they same way. They are well respected brand in the pen world, but it doesn't mean people want one of their watches.
Heinz tomato ketchup is well respected in the world of condiments, but it doesn't mean people want a suit made by them.
