SIHH 2017: Montblanc - TimeWalker Chronograph UTC

| No comment
At SIHH 2017, Montblanc is introducing a revamped TimeWalker collection, the sportier of the brand.

The new aesthetic code is all declared in the new TimeWalker Chronograph UTC which combines chronograph and dual time functions, making it the ideal companion for frequent travellers.


The new model features a 43 mm DLC-coated steel case with semi-skeletonized horns and a mix of high-tech materials, such as black DLC, high-tech black ceramic and black rubber.

The uni-directional rotating bezel crafted from black ceramic is knurled on the flank for a better grip and includes a silvery-white engraved 24-hour scale for greater legibility and functionality.


The black DLC crown and pushers have also been finished with a knurled decoration that takes its inspiration from the design of the petrol caps popular in classic racing cars.

Black is also the dial, which is laid out like an old car dashboard with two vertically aligned subsidiary dials for the chronograph, one a 30-minute register and the other a 12-hour register. The chronograph seconds hand is bright red with a Minerva-inspired arrowhead tip.


Powered by Calibre MB 25.03 (ETA 7754 based), the new TimeWalker Chronograph UTC shows the time in three different time zones. Local time is indicated with the rhodium-plated hands, and the home time can be read via a dark central hand enhanced with a red arrow and SuperLuminova at its tip. The readings are accompanied by the 24-hour scale on the bezel.


The local time is set via the crown, allowing a quick and simple adjustment of the time in hourly increments without affecting the functioning of the minutes. The date is synchronised with the local time. A third time zone can be easily indicated at any time by turning the unidirectional rotating bezel to the new time zone — the location of the 24-hour hand being the point of reference.

Beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour, the movement offers a 46-hour power reserve.

The new model comes with a choice of a perforated leather strap or a perforated rubber strap with a black lining that shows through the holes. The rubber strap has been designed with a raised grip pattern on the inner lining to provide better aeration to the skin and improved adhesion to the wrist. All strap options are equipped with a new triple folding clasp that was developed specially for the Montblanc TimeWalker Collection.

The TimeWalker Chronograph UTC will retail for Euro 4,990 / US$ 4,990. montblanc.com
