MontBlanc debuted their stunning Timewalker collection in the year of 2004 and, having been gracing the wrists of the elite in the luxury watch collecting world for well over a decade now - they are going nowhere in a hurry. The beautiful design of the MontBlanc Timewalker watch is somewhat art deco and somewhat metropolitan – a timeless look that can be worn by the professional businessman, the retired gentleman or the sporty youngster.
The MontBlanc Timewalker Urban Speed Chronograph Watch is a proud member of the prestigious Timewalker collection. Here, the brand has experimented with a black DLC coasted case which gives the timepiece an incredibly sleek look. The bold masculine-inspired design features a dynamic collection of elements that have been hand-applied to a black dial to give the instrument a legible display for quick and easy referencing. Chunky central hands have been treated with a luminescent coating, as have the surrounded hour indexes. A sharp injection of red punctuates the stealthy black dial with some colour, creating a sporty edge to the design. Those gentlemen who like to get a little more out of their watch, will enjoy facilitating the push buttons at 2 and 4 o’clock to operate minutes, hours and seconds functions on the chronograph sub-dials. This superb MontBlanc Timewalker watch, fitted with an attractive black E-Strap, is more than just a statement piece, but a highly technical tool for everyday use too.
The beauty about the MontBlanc Timewalker collection, is that it caters for all personalities. On the opposite spectrum from the sporty Urban Speed Chronograph, is the sophisticated, charming MontBlanc Timewalker Date watch. A 42mm diameter takes residence upon the gent’s wrist with a classic and ultra-clean silver dial. A mixture of Arabic numerals and double batons alternate around the hour track, dressed in a striking blue hue, whilst a date aperture rests discreetly at the 6 o’clock location. This MontBlanc Timewalker avoids over-fussiness with a smart brown alligator strap, to communicate beautifully with a set of anthracite lancet-shaped hands.
MontBlanc have also applied emphasis to their technical capabilities when it comes to these extraordinarily stylish Timewalker watches. The 43mm Chronograph Automatic watch for example, dressed on a black dial with hand applied rose gold appliqués, is powered by the ultra-reliable MB 25.02 automatic chronograph movement. It provides a 46 hour power reserve. The design ethics for this instrument are inspired by the traditional values of their watchmaking methods – bearing unmistakable nods to the forms and functionality of Bauhaus– the German school of art, architecture and craft. The watch is simple and easy to wear, yet evokes a sportiness and a versatility that can be worn for daytime occasions just as comfortably as those extra special evening events. Chronograph features are applied to a confident, large dial, enhanced by rose gold detailing and other luxury materials that convey undeniable character and opulence.
