It's a classic model and I think it will go nice with my suits at work (for a while) it's gold and I like silver on watches.

^ Skip to 4:25 to check out the metamorphosis watch.
Actually Montblanc purchased Minerva a few years ago.
When you can produce watches like these. I don't care if your company started out making toaster.

While the case-backs are very nice, I'm not a fan of any of the dial designs.

I'm with you on that one. I particularly dislike their numerals. Hands are nice enough

Anyone know the difference between the Nomos Tangente and the Tangente sport? I was never a huge fan but the more I look at them, the more I like.

from what i gathered online, the regular model has a more classy look to the hands, fonts and markers.

ah I see. I think the dial colour may be slightly more grey and they are also a different thickness. Thanks.

I agree with you on the purchase of Minerva by Mont Blanc. It was like finding that Patek Phillip was sold by the Stern family. Minerva made some of the best movements available. Beautiful photos.satisfied.gifworship.gifbiggrin.gif:)

Looks like the Sport has some kind of lume on the hands and 5 minute markers as well.

Thank you. What is AHCI?

Thanks kindly..

$500 for a gshock? did -not- expect that. Rad watch though. I have to say I like gshocks as they in my mind the best utilitarian wrist based time keeping device.
