This Montega MC 01 was launched in the 2000s under the name Amore.
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 chronograph movement was developed by the renowned Swiss chronograph modules manufacturer Dubois-Depraz, exclusively for Montega, and it is based on the automatic ETA 2892-A2. All the movements of this series of Montega watches are COSC chronometer certified.
The watch was produced in a very limited edition.
The MOP dial has 3 encircled counters (seconds at 3 o’clock, minute at 9 o’clock, hour at 6 o’clock position), with “spear tip” luminova hands.
The oscillating weight is decorated with Côtes de Genève and blue enamel etching with R9 logo.
The caterpillar style stainless steel bracelet is made from sophisticated designed screwed tubes.
The watch is in a very good condition, it comes from a private collection and it has no original box or papers.
The watch is working and keeping a pretty precise time, but as for any other used or vintage watch, a basic revision is recommended.
The whole upper side of the watch and the bezel are padded in ca. 210 real brilliant-cut diamonds.
You’ll get 4 extra dials as presented in the photos. With a rather small investment, you can have any of the dials fitted to the watch according to your preferences.
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 and or timed. I cannot guarantee a used watch to be waterproof or water resistant.
