Montblanc TimeWalker TwinFly Chronograph
On Monday, January 17th at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva, the Montblanc TimeWalker TwinFly Chronograph will be unveiled to the public and the international press on the occasion of the 190 years anniversary of the chronograph.
The new TimeWalker TwinFly Chronograph underscores the status of the Montblanc manufacture in Le Locle with its complete spectrum of capacities, beginning with the initial development of its own watch movements, continuing through their design and engineering, culminating in their final assembly and quality control. The fact that this model is a column-wheel chronograph adds additional appeal to the newcomer because this type of chronograph ranks among the most discriminating and most avidly sought constructions in its genre. The movements distinctive “TwinFlyback” function is another strong asset of this new calibre. The TimeWalker TwinFly Chronograph with titanium case and black DLC coating will be produced in a strictly limited edition of 300 pieces.
Demand for mechanical chronographs continues strong, and this is another good reason which prompted Montblanc to create the chronograph Calibre MB LL100, a self-winding movement endowed with all the typical attributes of highly evolved contemporary horological artistry. These include control for the stopwatch mechanism via a traditional column-wheel, which is an essential feature for a chronograph in this elite category, but one which entails an extremely large amount of effort in its manufacture. A modern aspect in the calibre's architecture is its vertical disk coupling, which generates very little friction and thus prevents unnecessary wear when the chronograph function is allowed to run for lengthy intervals. Calibre MB LL100 supports a very distinctive indication of the chronograph with both the large chronograph seconds and minute-hand from the center. All this in combination with a flyback function, a date window at the “9 o'clock” position and a 24-hour subdial at the “12.” This last-mentioned subdial shows the time in a second zone and also indicates whether it's presently day or night there.
Everything at a Glance
The indication of chronograph seconds and minutes both from the center has another advantage. Unlike the many other chronographs that display the minutes on a subdial, the construction of the new Montblanc TimeWalker TwinFly Chronograph allows to save this space for an additional function. In its place, the watch's designers installed a subdial to show the time in a second time zone. Knowing the hour in a second time zone, and knowing whether it's presently day or night there, has become quite important nowadays. More and more people regularly travel around the world, passing through and sojourning in various time zones, and those frequent flyers would naturally be curious to know which hour the bells of the clocks in their home time zone are currently tolling. The time-zone display at the “12 o'clock” position is accordingly designed as a 24-hour subdial from which the wearer can readily see whether the family at home is asleep or awake. To preserve the symmetry of the watch's face, a subdial for the continually running seconds is positioned diametrically across the dial at the “6.”
