Montblanc TimeWalker Chronograph Automatic
Recalling the golden years of motoring, the details of the new model Montblanc TimeWalker Chronograph Automatic will inspire today’s gentlemen drivers.
The vintage car codes are visible throughout the watch, starting with the 43 mm stainless steel case that has been satinated for better resistance to scratches. The Montblanc TimeWalker Chronograph Automatic features an unidirectional rotating black bezel knurled on the flank and made of shiny high-tech black ceramic for utmost robustness and durability. The bezel can be used as a second time zone indicator. The horns have been semi-skeletonized like the air inlets of a car’s body, and the black DLC crown and chronograph pushers have been knurled like vintage petrol caps for better gripping. Completing the motor racing design, the case back has been fitted with a smoked glass opening, reminiscent of the glass windows that cover powerful V12 engines, and the straps include perforation holes, much like the leather driving gloves used in the days when steering wheels were made of wood and needed to be firmly gripped.
The black dial features strong colour contrasts with silvery-white and red elements, as well as three-dimensional counters that bring back memories of vintage dashboards. Distinctive design codes include a red chronograph seconds hand in the centre, which has a tip sculpted in the form of the Minerva arrow; chronograph hours which are displayed in a subdial at 6 o’clock, and a 30-minute chronograph counter positioned at 12 o’clock.
All the readings are highly legible thanks to black rhodium-plated dauphine hands injected with SuperLuminova, and a precise silvery-white minute track that has also been enhanced with both SuperLuminova and red markers for the 15-minute marks, providing excellent visibility both during day and night.
This new model which is water-resistant to 100 meters is powered by the calibre MB 25.07. It comes with a choice of three different strap options: perforated leather, perforated rubber, and a new performance metal bracelet with three links. For utmost quality and comfort, the rubber strap has been designed with a raised grip pattern on the inner lining to provide better aeration to the skin and improved adhesion to the wrist. All strap and bracelet options are equipped with a new triple folding clasp that was developed specially for the Montblanc TimeWalker Collection.
Synonymous with excellence in craftsmanship and design, Montblanc has been pushing the boundaries of innovation ever since the Maison first revolutionized the culture of writing in 1906.Find out more >
