The Leather e-Strap
The TimeWalker collection e-Strap is equipped with a pass-through strap made of the innovative Montblanc Extreme Leather. The Extreme leather wristband created by the Montblanc Pelletteria in Florence, perfectly matches with the timepiece: markedly technical while retaining a sporty yet elegant appearance.
Due to its innovative manufacturing process, the upper surface of the leather wristband has a characteristic carbon appearance. In a long and meticulous process, the leather is textured and simultaneously impregnated with an innovative treatment that does not only coat the surface of the wristband, but also bonds with it and increases its structural strength. This innovative technique produces a high-performance and innovative leather, delivering abrasion resistance, water repellence and heat wear-, water- and fire-resistant.
The TimeWalker Urban Speed e-Strap will be available in June 2015.
Montblanc TimeWalker Urban Speed Chronograph
The aesthetics and innovations of the 21st century characterize the bold, masculine shapes and the state-of-the-art materials of the Montblanc TimeWalker Collection. Its expressive design with the signature skeletonized horns, a large dial with Arabic numerals in distinctive typography and the lancet-shaped hands gives all TimeWalker timepieces an instantly recognizable personality.
The Montblanc TimeWalker Urban Speed Chronograph captures the dynamism of metropolitan life, where time itself seems to accelerate – measured in flawless precision by the chronograph complication. The 43 mm case made of cold-gray, sandblasted stainless steel with a matte black ceramic bezel is a testimony to its dynamic spirit and technical elegance.
The watch’s performance is also reflected in the masterfully-crafted black dial. The middle stratum, which covers the center and the periphery of the dial, and the chronograph counters are embel-lished with fine circular striations. Accents in red contrast with the sporty black color of the dial: the red gasket below the sapphire crystal perfectly matches the red of the chronograph hand and the highlighted ten minute markings.
The leather strap, crafted in the Montblanc Pelletteria in Florence, is as stylish as it is functional. Made of Montblanc Extreme leather – a high-performance material of specially treated cowhide with a carbon-look texture – it offers heightened resistance to heat, scratches and water.
