THE COLLECTOR’S VIEW: WHY I BOUGHT A MONTBLANC VILLERET VINTAGE TACHYDATE
First, I wish to thank Deployant for giving me this chance to do a write-up documenting my experience with Montblanc, the excellent service and value provided by their team.
My close friend, Nick from the Deployant Team extended an invite to me to attend Montblanc’s “2016 Novelties” event at the Marina Bay Sands back in March. It was truly a great evening not only due to the fine champagne & food present there but rather, the extensive display of Montblanc’s Villeret Collection. The Villeret collection was as a result of the partnership between Minerva and Montblanc after parent company Richemont’s acquisition of Fabrique d’Horlogerie Minerva SA back in 2006. This subsequently led to the establishment of the Institut Minerva de Recherche en Haute Horlogerie to continue the fine watchmaking traditions of Minerva.
