Building on the success of their Timewalker collection, Montblanc presented two new TimeWalker Chronograph timepieces earlier this year, with “reverse panda” dials that reinforce their sporty, vintage and racing appeal with a distinctive aesthetic.
Montblanc Timewalker Manufacture Chronograph
This striking watch has a pretty wicked outlook all thanks to that quirky “reverse panda” dial. With a sporty black background, contrasting silvery-white sub dials and date window between 4 and 5 o clock, it’s a thrilling experience for any watch enthusiast. The presentation of the hour indicators too are pretty upbeat. The dial uses a 3, 6 and 9 o’clock layout, reminiscent of the traditional 3-6-9 counter chronograph positions. In terms of the overall build, the 43mm stainless steel case is satin finished with semi-skeletonized lugs. Sitting on top of the case is a fixed black ceramic bezel with a silvery-white engraved tachymeter scale. The TimeWalker Manufacture Chronograph is powered by a Montblanc Manufacture chronograph MB 25.10 movement, featuring traditional finishing such as Côtes de Genève, circular graining, blue screws and a new monobloc oscillating weight made of black rhodium-plated tungsten and designed in the shape of a steering wheel. The movement is equipped with a traditional column wheel, a horizontal coupling as well as a stop-second mechanism, allowing the precise setting of the time. The TimeWalker Manufacture Chronograph is fitted with a perforated vintage brown Sfumato aged calf leather strap from Richemont Pelletteria in Florence, Italy with stainless steel triple folding clasp

Montblanc Timewalker Automatic Chronograph 41mm
A master stroke from the house of Montblanc is this stunning Timewalker Automatic Chronograph. It comes in a slightly smaller size – 41mm and sits exceptionally well on the wrist. The “reverse panda” dial features a silvery-white 30-elapsed minute and 12-elapsed hour counter at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock respectively. The rhodium-plated Arabic figures, Super-LumiNova® indexes, luminescent black rhodium-plated dauphine hour-hand and minute-hand, red baton chronograph second hand with Minerva arrow at the extremity, are a visual spectacle. The watch runs on an MB 25.07 mechanical movement that is extremely reliable. Lending the final touch of class is the perforated black rubber strap with stainless steel pin buckle.
