Montblanc TimeWalker Collection
Montblanc TimeWalker ExoTourbillon Minute Chronograph Limited Edition 100
From the first glance the Montblanc TimeWalker collection exudes ultimate performance and overt technicity. High-tech materials, bold shapes and the stark contrast of black, red and white give the future of timekeeping an instantly recognisable face.
Introducing Montblanc’s patented ExoTourbillon to the Montblanc TimeWalker Collection, the high-performance Manufacture Calibre MB R230 emphasises its claim with innovative functionality. It combines two of the most important chronometric complications: a monopusher chronograph and an innovative tourbillon, whose balance wheel runs out-side of the tourbillon cage for greater isochronism. To set the time precisely to the second, the movement’s stop-seconds mechanism directly halts the balance wheel.
The 44 mm case with skeletonised horns safely protects the precious mechanical inner life. Made of Titanium sheathed with carbon fibre on the middle piece, it is topped off by a DLC-coated black bezel. The result is both lightweight and highly resistant. While the lower dial features a satinated finish, the upper part is embossed with a fine pattern of horizontal striations. The hour and minute hands, the Arabic numerals and the precise minuterie are highlighted in white and have received a luminescent Super-LumiNova®* coating for better readability at night. Accents in red – from the gasket and the chronograph counters to the stitching on the black alligator-skin strap – underline the timepiece’s strong character.
Montblanc TimeWalker Urban Speed UTC e-Strap
By introducing smart wearable technology to the world of Swiss fine watchmaking, the watchmakers of Montblanc have underlined their pioneering spirit. Now the Montblanc TimeWalker Urban Speed UTC e-Strap combines the digital capabilities of Montblanc’s e-strap with the highly functional mechanism of a UTC complication with a second time zone.
Seamlessly integrated into the NATO-type strap made of Montblanc Extreme leather, an OLED offers useful smart technology for connected Android and iOS smartphones. The e-strap integrates an activity tracker, notifications for incoming calls and messages as well as remote controls for the phone’s camera and music player. Digital functionality goes hand in hand with the refined mechanics of the Calibre MB 24.05. Highly useful for frequent travellers, its UTC complication displays a second time zone with day & night indication on the periphery of the dial via a skeletonised hand with an eye-catching red tip.
Accents in red also characterise the sporty appearance of the dial such as the dots at the 5-minute markings, the distinctive second hand and the gasket. The multilevel dial blends contemporary design and traditional craftsmanship with its finely worked circular striations in the centre. The characteristic skeletonised horns and thin bezel of the Montblanc TimeWalker collection give the 42 mm stainless steel case its strong presence, while its highly resistant surface stems from the DLC treatment.
