2017 has clearly been the year of the Timewalker Collection for Montblanc; a collection that symbolizes the spirit of motor racing, encapsulating the Minerva heritage, superb technology, masculine energy, winning performance and the style of the glory days of racing.
Today, Montblanc presents the latest addition to its Timewalker family: The TimeWalker Automatic Chronograph in red gold and shiny brown ceramic, reinforcing its racing spirit look.
Performance and style continues onto the 43 mm, 18K satin finished red gold case, providing a more sporty look and better resistance to scratches. The horns, with their architectural and carved flanks, are semi-skeletonized like the air inlets of a car’s body. The brown ceramic bezel which can also be used as a second time zone indicator is uni-directional and is knurled on the flank. It matches the overall design perfectly. The knurled insets of the red gold-coloured pushers and the crown have also been made in brown.
With its new brown backdrop, the dial is a real standout. It is enhanced by the hands, minute track, numerals and indexes all in plated red gold, accentuating the vertically aligned 30-minute and 12-hour chronograph counters that are reminiscent of the dashboards of classic racing cars.
In the spirit of motor racing, the case back is equipped with a smoked glass opening, reminiscent of the glass windows that cover powerful V12 engines, and comes on a brown calf leather strap with perforation holes, like the leather driving gloves used in the days when steering wheels were made of wood and needed to be firmly gripped. The strap comes fitted with the Maison’s 18K red gold triple folding clasp, providing excellent flexibility and maximum comfort on the wrist.
Powered by Montblanc’s calibre MB 25.07, the watch is water resistant to 100 metres, and has been rigorously tested by the Montblanc Laboratory Test 500, providing utmost reliability and performance.
A true winner in our books!
