On Thursday, August 10th, 2017, Montblanc Australia celebrated the spirit of racing with the launch of the new TimeWalker Collection, at the gorgeous Quay Restaurant, overlooking sparkling Sydney Harbour and the iconic Opera House in Sydney.
Paying tribute to Minerva’s (Montblanc’s specialist manufacture known for developing groundbreaking movements) extraordinary heritage, Montblanc takes a journey back to the glory days of motor racing with its new TimeWalker timepieces that capture the beauty, spirit and values of motorsport history.
The day began with Montblanc Australia General Manager, Randall Foote story telling the significant connection between Minerva and Montblanc. “We acquired Minvera in 2006. We were determined as a young watchmaking brand that had started in 1996 to bolster our heritage and our tradition. Minerva gave us that”, added Randall.
Leon Mervis, Managing Director, Montblanc Australia, further elaborated, “The connection between Minerva heritage and this vintage sport style is shining through in the new TimeWalker collection.”
The event showcased the accessible new TimeWalker models to the limited edition 100 Chronograph Rally Timer Counter and ExoTourbillion Minute Chronograph 100. More on the Montblanc TimeWalker Chronograph Automatic and TimeWalker ExoTourbillon Minute Chronograph Limited Edition 100 models here.
Limited to 100 pieces, The TimeWalker Chronograph Rally Timer Counter was inspired by the renown ‘Rally Timer’ stopwatch produced by Minerva for recording road racing. This innovative timepiece offers different ways to appreciate the time, with the possibility of transforming the wristwatch into a pocket watch or a dashboard clock.
Montblanc activated the spirit of racing with car simulators where guests had the opportunity to race around Sydney’s Eastern Creek Track.
The Montblanc TimeWalker Collection is now available in store at Montblanc boutiques Australia-Wide.
