MONTEGA MC01 R9 – Swiss Made Automatic Chronograph Chronometer Watch
The Montega MC01 R9 – Ronaldo Edition was launched in the 2000s.
The watch was designed by the famous Lebanese jewelry designer Marc Chatila, president of the Swiss – Geneva based – Montega company, and is a piece of technical avant-garde with a very sophisticated construction. The 44 mm watch case is made of 40 different elements all assembled by screws, without any soldering.
The 57 Jewels high precision calibre 2047 specialized module was developed by the renowned Swiss chronograph modules manufacturer Dubois-Depraz, exclusively for Montega, and it is combined with the automatic ETA 2892-A2. All the movements of this series of Montega watches are COSC chronometer certified.
This model was produced in a numbered limited edition of 19999 pieces.
The blue striped dial ( has 3 encircled counters (seconds at 3:00, minute at 9:00, hour at 6:00 position), with “spear tip” luminova hands.
The oscillating weight is decorated with Côtes de Genève and blue enamel etching.
The caterpillar style stainless steel bracelet is made from sophisticated designed screwed tubes.
Two extra dials included, in white and dark blue. A brand new original hand stitched blue genuine leather Montega OEM strap is included too.
The watch is in a very good condition, it comes from a private collection and it has no papers.
The watch maintenance history is unknown. The watch is working and keeping a pretty accurate time, but as for any vintage or used watch, a basic revision is recommended.
Most of the watches that I am selling are liquidation or collector items, therefor I make no claims and give no warranty regarding continual accuracy of time keeping. Used, antique or vintage watches may need servicing, even if they are in good running condition. Unless otherwise stated they may need to be cleaned, oiled, adjusted or timed. I cannot guarantee a used watch to be waterproof or water resistant.
