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 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.
New Chronograph Movement: Calibre MB LL100
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.
If the user presses the button in the flank of the case at the “4” while the chronograph is running, both the central chronograph-hand and the sixty-minute counter quickly “fly back” to their zero positions and, without further action by the wearer, immediately begin measuring a new interval. This nearly instantaneous return to zero gave rise to the term “flyback.” The speedy homecoming is all the more spectacular when it is performed by two large and centrally axial hands, thus prompting its designers to give the new Montblanc TimeWalker Chronograph the name “TwinFly.”
Black is Back
The titanium case has a black DLC coating: this lightweight high-tech metal is ideally complemented by the especially robust and extremely scratch-resistant DLC coating. The unique association ensures that the Montblanc TimeWalker TwinFly is highly resistant to scratches and shocks, thanks to the properties of this high-tech titanium alloy, that is 1,5 harder than stainless steel.
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 >
