An In Depth Montblanc Watches Review
Hello everyone, today we’re doing something a little different and featuring a luxury German watch brand, Montblanc Watches. I don’t often feature costly luxury brands but I was taking a look at the brand recently and decided I wanted to include them on the site.
If you don’t quite have the budget for these you should check out my 100 best watches under £1000.
Are Montblanc watches good?
Montblanc are a huge company that produces a range of luxury items including pens, leather, watches, jewellery, sunglasses, perfume, and cufflinks. They’re a German brand but all the watches featured below are Swiss made to the highest standards.
Their watches are well built and include some of the highest quality components available. I’d definitely consider Montblanc watches to be good myself. It just comes down to whether or not you prefer affordable watches or luxury timepieces. Personally, I tend to side with getting multiple affordable watches over a single luxury watch, but it really comes down to budget as these are a little out of my range.
If you have any questions about any of the Montblanc watches featured just comment below and I’ll try and assist you as quickly as I can.

3. Montblanc Men’s Watch with Leather Strap
Here we have another very smart looking Montblanc timepiece. This automatic watch features a stainless steel 42mm casing with a thickness of 13mm. It’s been paired up with a genuine leather strap that fastens with a buckle style clasp.
The dial has a simple design to it that reminds me of racing watches, to be honest. The silver-tone hands and Arabic numeral and index hour markers stand out boldly against the black background of the dial. The lume that’s found on the hands and hour markers makes them easier to read in dim lit conditions.
Powering this Montblanc watch is an automatic Calibre 42.09 self-winding movement, this has a power reserve of 42 hours. You can see this movement working away through the exhibition caseback on the rear of the watch, one of my favourite features. A scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass protects the front of the watch from knocks and scratches. It also has a basic 30m water resistance rating.
