TAG Heuer’s reissue of the famous Monza chronograph is one of the most sophisticated timepieces that I have encountered recently. But the Monza now has competition. Luxury website ThePuristS.com has introduced a special new limited edition watch for sale. Armed with an impossibly long name, the Montblanc Villeret 1858 Vintage Chronographe PuristS 10th Edition watch, a.k.a. the P10, is sure to have site members drooling.
This special edition luxury watch marks the tenth anniversary of ThePuristS.com, “The Serious Connoisseurs’ Resource”. The site has proved a great resource for serious collectors, offering access to the finest watches, food, wine and more. The P10 will be one among a number of special luxury watch models that will be sold via the website all year long. Many of the members on the site are prolific watch-buyers, and this is ThePuristS.com’s unique way of thanking them.
This limited edition Montblanc Villeret 1858 Vintage Chronographe boasts of a white gold casing. The dials are crafted out of white enamel and the numbering stands out in sharp contrast. A special touch is the red “P10” label at the 10 o’ clock point, which gives this chronograph its abbreviated name. A transparent sapphire caseback allows users to study the inner workings of this beautiful timepiece. This luxury watch runs on the Montblanc Minerva 16.29 movement. A blue-toned alligator strap matches the blue steel hands of this 41,000-euro watch. Only ten units will be produced to be sold on ThePuristS.com exclusively to its members. So if this chronograph makes you swoon, you had better become a member soon.
