Normally in these hands on reviews I leave the sticky question of the price until the end. But this time around I'm putting it front and centre. This Montblanc Heritage Automatic has an Australian RRP of $3410. And for that amount of coin, you get a lot of watch.* The steel case is well sized 40mm across and 11.65mm high, with 20mm lugs packing a really nice grey croc strap with a slight sfumato effect. The lines of this case errs, as the heritage name would suggest, towards the more classic in style. Fairly simple construction, a mirror polish and pleasing, swooping lugs. The movement is a third party number, reliable, but nothing too exciting, which is why the brand has opted to hide it away behind a nicely engraved picture of the Montblanc, nee Minerva, facility in Villeret. It's worth noting that the caseback is about as close as this watch got to that building, which is strictly the domain of their top tier pieces this watch was assembled in the brand's Le Locle facility.* The dial though, that's something else. The salmon colour is on trend for 2019, and very much the right choice for this…
