The White Gold Montblanc Star 4810 Chronograph Automatic Watch Replica

At the recent SIHH 2010 trade show the Swiss fake Montblanc Star 4810 Chronograph Automatic watch.

Dial

The first one has the aforementioned elements treated with something that looks like rhodium-plating and the other, dressier one offers a so-called “two-tone” design with the same elements plated with 18-carat rose gold.The device is now available in tow variations that seem to differ only with the way their hands, hour markers, and large Roman numerals are finished.

Trying to make their current Star collection look more consistent, they took the basic layout of the three-hander and added a pair of chronograph sub-dials at 6 and 12 o’clock (the former shares its space with a wide, arc-shaped date disk) and a small seconds indicator at 9 hours.

The result looks a bit controversial to me since all elements of this timekeeper seem to be a tad exaggerated: the numerals are a tad too large, the guilloche pattern is carved a tad too dip into the silver-toned dial, and the sub-dials are raised a tad too high over its surface. On the other hand, the Dauphine-shaped hour and minute hands are a bit too small for this oversized watch.

Just to make things more clear, I can’t really say that I don’t like this white gold fake Montblanc Star 4810 automatic watch, neither I intend to bash it. It is just that this timepiece doesn’t seem to be polished enough to get the highest score of this brief review. I think, exterior design-wise, it earns four stars out of five.

Also, just to make things clear, I think that the bright red, gold-rimmed triangle at the lower part of the dial that points to current date seems somewhat superfluous to me: it just adds one detail too many to this already busy dial.

Case

Measuring 44 millimeters in diameter and around 14.5 millimeters thick, this timekeeper is sized like a sporty chronograph, but is clearly designed to be worn with something more formal than slacks and a polo shirt. I understand that is some parts of the world a luxury watch is supposed to look big and bold, but, well, in time they will, too, develop a good taste in these sorts of things and reselling this beast without losing too much money may prove a bit problematic.

Another thing that stopped this Star 4810 model from getting more stars is the way its impressive size contradicts to its exterior styling if you don’t mind me saying this.

Predictably, on a normal wrist the device takes a lot of space, but not ridiculously so, which is definitely a plus.

The best quality Montblanc copy watch is powered by the Montblanc 4810/501 Caliber, which is based on the well-known ETA Valjoux 7750 natural born automatic chronograph movement.
